Weaning from mechanical ventilation represents a crucial step in the recovery process following endotracheal intubation in patients with acute respiratory failure. Delayed weaning from mechanical ventilation is associated with adverse clinical outcome, increases the risk of dying and increases length of stay in the intensive care unit. Weaning duration affects health care resource use, whether direct financial costs or the opportunity for other patients of consumption of finite critical care capacity.
WEAN SAFE is an international collaboration among 50 countries and 500 ICU's around the globe to investigate the epidemiology, practice and outcome of weaning from mechanical ventilation. WEAN SAFE is an ERS co-funded clinical research collaboration and the first results of this collaboration investigating almost 6000 patients have been published very recently (Pham et al, Lancet RM, 2023). These results are highly relevant from clinical, scientific and patient perspective. A webinar would be an ideal format to discuss the findings and implications of the first WEAN SAFE results.
