Can Gastric Tonometry be Used to Determine Weaning Failure? Gastrik Tonometri Weaning Basarisizligini Belirlemek Icin Kullanilabilir Mi?(Original Investigation/Ozgun Arastirma) (Report)

Introduction Despite the advances, weaning from mechanical ventilation is an important problem in daily operations of intensive care units (ICUs). The weaning period can represent more than 40% of the mechanical ventilation duration. As reported in different series, weaning failure varies widely (1-4). Several pathophysiological determinants of weaning failure have been identified, including inadequacy of […]
