PURPOSE: Currently there is not an ideal weaning index, this should include: assessment of the pathophysiological determinants of weaning outcome, including ventilatory muscle function, pulmonary gas exchange (ventilation and oxygenation), and psychological problems, accurately evaluate physiological function, ease of measurement and reproducible measurements, minimum patient cooperation, and high positive and negative predictive values.
