Bottom Line: Forty mechanically ventilated patients were admitted to an intensive care unit of a university tertiary hospital.The differences between VO2 and EE obtained during SBT with ATC and without ATC were -1.6 mL/kg/min (95% CI: -4.36 - 1.07) and 5.4 kcal/day (95% CI: -21.67 - 10.79), respectively.We concluded that VO2 and EE obtained during SBT with and without ATC were not different.

ABSTRACT

Background: Weaning from mechanical ventilation is defined as the process of release of ventilatory support and how the evaluation of this phase is conducted in the spontaneous breathing trial (SBT). One of the most used modes of SBT is the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), which applies a continuous positive pressure in both inspiration and expiration. However, together with the mechanical ventilation modes, the automatic tube compensation (ATC) can be used, which compensates the resistance imposed by the endotracheal tube. The objective of this study was to compare oxygen consumption (VO2) and energy expenditure (EE) during SBT conducted with and without ATC.

Methods: The study was prospective, randomized and crossover. Forty mechanically ventilated patients were admitted to an intensive care unit of a university tertiary hospital. The participants were randomly allocated in group 1, in which SBT was initiated with CPAP and ATC, followed by CPAP without ATC or in group 2, in which SBT was initiated with CPAP without ATC, followed by CPAP with ATC. Indirect calorimetry helped to measure VO2 and EE during SBT.

Results: The differences between VO2 and EE obtained during SBT with ATC and without ATC were -1.6 mL/kg/min (95% CI: -4.36 - 1.07) and 5.4 kcal/day (95% CI: -21.67 - 10.79), respectively.

Conclusions: We concluded that VO2 and EE obtained during SBT with and without ATC were not different.

Figure 1: Experimental design used throughout the study.

Mentions: Figure 1 illustrates the intervention conducted in this study. Group 1 underwent SBT in CPAP associated with ATC (CPAP + ATC) (experimental intervention) followed by SBT in CPAP without ATC (CPAP) (control intervention). Group 2 was submitted to SBT in CPAP without ATC (CPAP), followed by SBT in CPAP associated with ATC (CPAP + ATC). Thirty-minute PSV at 8 cm H2O was accomplished between the modes, to eliminate the residual effect of the first procedure during application of the second procedure (washout). In addition, 15 min were allowed between modes, to stabilize the gases.
