2
AKA weaning parameters

3
Respiratory Rate Tidal Volume Minute Ventilation Vital Capacity NIF (MIP,MIF) RSBI

4
You need some type of volume measuring device Wright Respirometer is a hand held device for this Measure exhaled tidal volume for one minute, it will accumulate and give you a minute ventilation

5
Take the minute ventilation value and divide by the RR. This gives you the average Vt Coach the patient to do a Vital Capacity Take the largest volume you obtain With another device, a manometer, measure the amount of negative force a patient can generate Do this by attaching the manometer and occluding all air and watch the manometer

6
You should have four values Respiratory rate Minute ventilation Vital capacity Negative inspiratory force From these you can calculate Tidal volume RSBI

7
Normal 12-20 bpm Minimal values Less than 25 bpm More than 10 bpm

8
The average size tidal volume Measure the Minute Ventilation and divide by the rate

9
Normal about 5ml/kg Minimal values More than 250ml Minute ventilation and RSBI are more important

10
Normal 5-10 lpm Minimal Values Less than 10 More than 5

11
The maximum amount of air you can breathe out after inhaling as much as possible. “take a big breath in and blow it all out” FVC is the basic test done in a PFT The patient is not to use force for this test, we are measuring just the volume

12
Normal Minimal values 10 ml/kg 1 liter (1000ml)

13
Negative Inspiratory Force Maximum Inspiratory Pressure (MIP) Maximum Inspiratory Force (MIF) The maximum amount of force a patient can generate while breathing in with a closed circuit.

14
Normal values >100 cmH2O Minimal Values Greater than 20 cmH2O

15
Rapid Shallow Breathing Index The more rapid and shallow the breathing the less effective it is Respiratory rate(f) divided by tidal volume(Vt) Single best indicator of post extubation success

16
Normal <105 Use the Vt and RR from the parameters gathered
