    The Role of Diaphragmatic Shallow Breathing Index in Assessment of Diaphragmatic Dysfunction and Weaning from Mechanical Ventilation
    Author(s): Hatem Mowafy*, Kamel Abd el Aziz, Suzy Fawzy and Mohamed Shaaban

    Mechanical ventilation is one of the most common interventions in critical care. Weaning patients from mechanical ventilation is a cornerstone in the management of critically ill patients as unnecessary delay can lead to further complications 20% of the intubated patients show difficulty in extubation and weaning, despite established weaning criteria. The diaphragm is the principal respiratory muscle in humans, diaphragmatic ultrasound is a simple method useful to evaluate their thickness. This technique is highly feasible, simple, and non-invasive that can be used for the evaluation of diaphragmatic functions. This study aimed to compare the ability of the traditional RSBI and D-RSBI to predict successful weaning in ready-to-wean patients. A prospective observational study was conducted on 40 mechanically ventilated patients. In our study, DTF, DE, Rapid Shallow Breathing Index (RSBI.. Read More»
