Models for Prediction of Ventilator Weaning and Survival in COPD Patients

Purpose:

To predict the probability of weaning and survival in a COPD patient placed on mechanical ventilation for acute respiratory failure.

Specialty:

Critical Care Medicine, Pulmonary Disease

Objective:

criteria for diagnosis, severity, prognosis, stage, options, selection

ICD-10:

J44, Z99.1

Description:

Menzies et al evaluated patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who required mechanical ventilation for acute respiratory failure. They identified clinical and laboratory parameters which could be used to predict the likelihood of successful weaning and survival. The authors are from the Montreal Chest Hospital and McGill University.
