Abstract:

Request termination of MIPR 92MM2539, titled Comparison of Work of Breathing During Mechanical Ventilation Using Assist Control and Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation. Since initiation of the above study in March 1992, only 2 patients have been enrolled. Difficulties in enrollment has been due to patients not tolerating the various ventilatory settings, as well as the metabolic cart which measures the exhaled carbon dioxide and oxygen consumption having too large a range in measured variables. This latter fact may be related to the difficulties encountered in tolerating the ventilator changes.
