PURPOSE: Critically ill patients with acute respiratory failure are often in positive fluid balance. Positive fluid balance may be related to comorbidities as well as treatment of the acute disorder, as emphasized in the fluid resuscitation for sepsis. We investigated fluid balance and use of diuretics among patients in the medical intensive care unit (MICU), undergoing ventilator weaning trials.
