Abstract

Since the early sixties expert systems for weaning of patients from artificial ventilation have been designed. The general approach as well as the chosen endpoints varied widely [1–10]. Since clinical results have been published by only few groups [10, 8], the practical use of these systems appears to be very limited. Recently published data on specific parts of the weaning process are encouraging [11–14]. They reported shorter weaning periods, a diminished number of blood gases [11, 8] or a greater percent of ventilation in the zone of confort [10].
