Wean the patient quickly and safely - Mechanical Ventilation Wean

Wean the patient quickly and safely

Don’t miss a chance to achieve ventilation weaning progress

As Your Specialist in Acute Care we understand that mechanical ventilation should only take as long as necessary. Otherwise the risk of complications and lung damage increases as well as the ICU length of stay. The crucial factors for successful weaning and extubation are an interdisciplinary strategy and an accurate assessment of the patient.

Wean the patient successfully as third step of the Respiration Pathway

Wean Pathway

Wean the patient quick and safe because ...

  • the incidence of acute lung injuries (ALI) or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) could delay the induction of weaning
  • the delayed induction of ventilation weaning may lead to weaning failure
  • paying attention to early detection of risk factors may contribute to successful weaning and shorten ICU length of stay

The six phases of the weaning process

There are a series of stages in the process of care, from intubation and initiation of mechanical ventilation through initiation of the weaning effort to the ultimate liberation from mechanical ventilation and successful extubation.

Weaning Process
Evita V800

Gentle ventilation with variable pressure support

Making random ventilation changes to imitate the “noise” is an innovative way to improve outcome. Visit our topics page to learn more about Variable Pressure Support. 

Evita V800 PPS

Allow the patient to take control of ventilation.

Proportional Pressure Support (PPS) applies patient-triggered pressure support in proportion to the patient’s inspiratory effort.

Evita V800 SmartCare

Improves outcome, shortens ICU stay

SmartCare/PS is an integrated automated clinical protocol that is designed to stabilize the patient’s spontaneous breathing in a comfortable zone of normal ventilation.

Early Mobilisation Scene

Early Mobilization

Traditionally, every patient admitted to an ICU is immediately put on enforced bed rest. Research now shows that bed rest can have adverse effects on muscles and organs, which can impair neuropsychological functions and reduce movement capacity.

The PulmoVista 500 allows you to visualise the distribution of ventilation in the lungs

Dräger PulmoVista® 500 – making ventilation visible

PulmoVista 500 helps adjust ventilation settings to achieve individually optimized ventilation with regional specific, continuous and dynamic information at the bedside.

Our set of treatment tools to protect the lung

Stabilizing a patient’s breathing means to be well informed about the state of the lung at all times. Let us assist you with a set of proven tools. 

VC-MMV Autoflow Screenshot

VC-MMV with AutoFlow (Volume Controlled - Mandatory Minute Volume) to support the transition from controlled to assisted spontaneous breathing with a minimum minute ventilation.


PC-BIPAP to enable the patient to breathe spontaneously at any time during pressure controlled ventilation.

Automatic Tube Compensation

ATC - Automatic Tube Compensation to reduce tube related work of breathing to ease spontaneaous breathing.

P0.1 measurement RSBi NIF

P0.1-measurement,RSBI, NIF to help to asses and quantify the patients ability to breathe spontaneously.

Draeger SPN CPAP NIV Respiratory Pathway

SPN-CPAP-VS to support the spontaneous breathing with guaranteed tidal volume. 

Draeger SPN-PPS Tube ATC Spont Breath II Respiratory Pathway

SPN-PPS to unload the patient individually for elastic or resistive work of breathing and to avoid asynchrony with proportional assisted ventilation.


Variable Pressure Support to increase the variability of delivered tidal volume which will lead to improved oxygenation

Comprehensive Monitoring Functions

Comprehensive monitoring functions like loops, trends logbooks to enable the retrospective analysis of all patient data.

Draeger Smart Pulmonary View III Respiratory Pathway

Smart Pulmonary View to perform real time visualization and turn data into information for a potentially quicker analysis of lung dynamic parameters.
