An Analytical Cross-Sectional Study on the Impact of Clinical Profile on the Outcome of Patients on Mechanical Ventilation at a Tertiary Care Centre
Keywords:Mechanical Ventilation, ICU, Outcome
Introduction: Mechanical ventilation (MV) is an invasive life supporting device to mimic the respiratory physiological function at the time of impending respiratory failure. There is dramatic improvement in the survival of critically ill patients, but also associated with complications affecting the overall outcome. A part from the severity of underlying disease, MV and care related parameters also influence the outcome. Aim: To determine the outcome of mechanically ventilated patients in an ICU depending on their clinical profile. Materials and Method: Retrospective cross sectional study for duration of 6 months. Inclusion criteria: Patients >18years of age, male and female patients, All patients requiring MV support for >12hours, Patients with failing respiratory drive or who failed O2 therapy and NIV are eligible for the study. Exclusion criteria: Patients <18years of age, Patients who died within12 hours of intubation, Patients who were extubated <12 hours of intubation, Pregnant and lactating women, patients with Incomplete data. Conclusion: Increased mortality observed in patients with sepsis and more number of ventilator days and increased length of hospital stay.
