    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Successful management of the ventilator-dependent burn patient requires protocols for monitoring and protecting the patient; a logical approach to weaning and extubation; and experienced bedside personnel. This review covers the complications of airway maintenance and conventional positive-pressure ventilation, routine care of the ventilated patient and ventilator monitoring, management of the patient who seems to be fighting the ventilator, weaning criteria, and extubation procedures.
