Weaning, Ventilator .
Mechanical Ventilator Weaning .
Respirator Weaning .
Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation. .

Weaning .
Weanings .
Early Weaning .
Permanent deprivation of breast milk and commencement of nourishment with other food. (From Stedman, 25th ed) .
Respiration .
Breathing .
The act of breathing with the LUNGS, consisting of INHALATION, or the taking into the lungs of the ambient air, and of EXHALATION, or the expelling of the modified air which contains more CARBON DIOXIDE than the air taken in (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed.). This does not include tissue respiration (= OXYGEN CONSUMPTION) or cell respiration (= CELL RESPIRATION). .

Respiratory Rates .
Respiration Rate .
The number of times an organism breathes with the lungs (RESPIRATION) per unit time, usually per minute. .
Respiratory Aspiration .
Aspiration, Respiratory .
Inhaling liquid or solids, such as stomach contents, into the RESPIRATORY TRACT. When this causes severe lung damage, it is called ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA. .
