ABC Trial: Awakening and Breathing Controlled - Tabular View - ClinicalTrials.gov

ABC Trial: Awakening and Breathing Controlled - Tabular View - ClinicalTrials.gov
The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of a new RN/RRT (Registered Nurse/Registered Respiratory Therapist) directed 2-step protocol to wean patients off of a ventilator. This protocol involves daily attempts to halt sedation (spontaneous awakening trials) combined with daily assessments of patients while they are breathing on their own (spontaneous breathing trials).
