Weaning From Mechanical Ventillation

By Sebastian Benavides PGY2

  • Identifying patients who are ready to wean from mechanical ventillation
    • Via clinical criteria
  • Identifying patient who are not ready for weaning
  • Knowing the weaning parameters
defining weaning
Defining Weaning
  • Progressive decrease in the amount of support a patient recieves from the ventilator
    • 2 step process
      • Patients who are ready to wean are identified using a two step predictors of weaning outcome
      • Weaning is then initiated
  • Clinical Criteria:
    • Cause of respiratory failure improved
    • Patient is hemodynamic ally stable
    • Patient oxygenating well (SpO2>90% on FIO2<50%, PEEP< or = to 5)
    • Mental status: Awake and alert
    • Able to initiate inspiratory effort
  • Parameters:
    • RSBI (RR/Vt)<105
    • Mintue Ventilation <15L/min
    • Spontaneous Vt > or = 5ml/kg
    • Negative inspiratory force< or = to -30mm H2O
initial weaning
Initial Weaning
  • Set pressure support ventillation 1 hr prior to initiation of weaning:
    • FiO2 at 50%
    • PEEP: must be less than 8
    • Pressure support should be weaned down to 5
  • Prior to Extubation:
    • Confirm minimal FIO2 (less than or equal to 50%) and PEEP equal to 5
    • Evaluate upper airway comlications
      • Check audible cuff leak (if concern for edema, stridor)
      • Check if cough and gag are present
    • Have equipment ready
      • NC/face mask/bipap
    • Suction secreations
    • Extubate!
  • 62 year old male who weighs 70kg was intubated 3 days ago for hypercapnic respiratory failure
  • Patient is alert, cooperative on the ventilator over the past 6 hours
  • He is on poressure support ventilation with a tidal volume of 700ml, PS of 10 and an FIO2 of 50%
  • Upon assessing his weaning parameters, his RSBI is 70, minute ventillation is 10ml/min, his spontaneous tidal volume is 490ml nad NIF is -30mmH2O
  • What would be the following appropriate plan of action?
    • Extubate patient to NC
    • Increase pressure support to 15 assess weaning parameters and extubate after 1 hour
    • Decrease pressure support to 5 assess weaning parameters and extubate after 1 hour
    • Increase FIO2 to 60% then extubate after assessing weaning parameters
    • Decrease FIO2 to 40% then extubate after assessing weaning parameters
  • C is the correct answer
  • Answer: reinitubate and resume mechanical ventilation
  • When weaning, remember that patients must meet clinical criteria. Use your judgment and ask yourself if this patient looks ready to be extubated
  • Know your weaning parameters
    • RSBI, Minute ventilation, Spontaneous tidal volume, NIF
  • Always have equipment ready once extubating as patient may fail extubation regardless if they meet all the weaning parameters and clinical criteria
