The static lung compliance and degree of infiltration present on a chest radiograph were determined by the lung injury score (LIS), which uses a 4-point score based on the PEEP level and PaO2/FiO2 ratio (13).
The continuous response variables like age, weight, PaO2/FiO2, and APACHE-II score are presented as mean [+ or -] SD.
In our patient, the findings from the second lung X-ray, the bilateral alveolar interstitial infiltrates and the severe hypoxemia with PaO2/FIO2 no higher than 200 were compatible with ARDS.
Before SBT and after 30 min of SBT, the following measurements were carried out, arterial blood gases, parameters of ventilation such as f,VT, PEEP,-FiO2, PaO2/FiO2 ratio, HR (Heart rate), systolic (SBP) diastolic (DBP) blood pressure and SpO2.
(17), found that age and a PaO2/FiO2 on the third day of intubation were predictors of prolonged intubation.
The Rapid Shallow Breathing Index, (RSBI), Maximal Inspiratory Pressure, (MIP) and PaO2/FiO2 ratio remain the most reliable triad of weaning indicators.
Results: Groups were similar in age, gender, cause of respiratory failure, amount of MV support required, arterial blood gases, PaO2/FiO2 ratio, dynamic lung compliance, lung resistance, prealbumin, smoking history and SAPS II score upon starting treatment.
Severe ARDS with a PaO2/FiO2 ratio of <100 could be used as a predictor for mortality.
