Brief Summary:
The mechanical ventilation strategy has changed over years worldwide. Several international researches have been conducted to study the association of the use of mechanical ventilation with clinical outcomes. In this prospective, multicenter, cross-sectional survey, the practice of mechanical ventilation among patients with severe brain injury will be investigated in 70 intensive care units in China.

Condition or disease
Respiration, Artificial

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 104 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: A Survey on the Practice of Mechanical Ventilation Among Patients With Severe Brain Injury in China: a Prospective Observational Study
Study Start Date : August 2015
Actual Primary Completion Date : August 2015
Actual Study Completion Date : September 2015

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients receiving control and assist mode of mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: During 1 hour of on-spot survey ]
    Control mode is defined as volume or pressure control ventilation. Assist mode is defined as synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation and pressure support ventilation.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The settings of tidal volume, inspiratory pressure, and positive end-expiratory pressure in enrolled patients [ Time Frame: During 1 hour of on-spot survey ]
  2. Duration of mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: 60 days after on-spot survey ]
  3. Number of patients liberated from mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: 60 days after on-spot survey ]
  4. Neurological outcome by Glasgow Outcome Scale [ Time Frame: 60 days after on-spot survey ]
