Demographics of long-term ventilator-dependent patients outside the intensive care unit

Demographics of long-term ventilator-dependent patients outside the intensive care unit

Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine 58(6): 505-509

Continued management of clinically stable ventilator-dependent patients in the intensive care unit is controversial, given the expense and limitations of intensive care resources. A proposed alternative, which could reduce the cost of care, has been "noninvasive respiratory units." We review the management of 99 ventilator-dependent patients on routine nursing floors to define our case mix and the outcome of long-term care.
