Long-Term Mechanical Ventilation: Management Strategies Alexander C White MD Introduction Weaning or Discontinuing PMV Identifying and Correcting Barriers to Weaning Special Situations Systematic Approach to Weaning Trials/Liberation Trials Failure to Wean and the Decision to Proceed With Life-Long Support. This paper reviews management strategies for patients undergoing prolonged mechanical ventilation (PMV). Topics covered include how to identify and correct barriers to weaning, the systematic approach to weaning trials, when to cease weaning trials and proceed with life-long support, managing the tracheostomy tube during PMV, and, finally, how to select a suitable mechanical ventilator for PMV.

Rationale: Patients managed at a long-term acute-care hospital (LTACH) for weaning from prolonged mechanical ventilation are at risk for profound muscle weakness and disability. Objectives: To investigate effects of prolonged ventilation on survival, muscle function, and its impact on quality of life at 6 and 12 months after LTACH discharge. Methods: This was a prospective, longitudinal study.   Endotracheal intubation is an intervention frequently performed in the hospital setting in order to protect the central airway and provide mechanical support of ventilation. Many health care providers are expected to be able to intubate the patients for different indications. As the case in any medical intervention, endotracheal intubation can cause complications. The Long-Term Mechanical Ventilation Toolkit for Adult Acute Care Providers is the result of a collaborative effort between CCSO, led by Dr. Bernard Lawless [Provincial Lead, Critical Care and Trauma], and a group of experts in the domain of long-term ventilation. CCSO established the Long-Term Ventilation Planning Committee to identify issues.
