SESSION TITLE: Critical Care: Mechanical Ventilation

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

PURPOSE: Weaning is an essential part of critically ill patients who are on mechanical ventilation. Recently a new classification was revised categorizing weaning into simple, difficult and prolonged. It was recognized that some patients are easily weaned off and others require a more prolonged duration. This study aimed to determine the factors that are associated with prolonged weaning and to determine if these factors can predict patients who will undergo prolonged weaning.
