Dr. Eddy Fan reviews current evidence and clinical practice guidelines on liberation of adult ICU patients from mechanical ventilation. He also discusses ongoing and future research on the potential role of non-invasive respiratory support (e.g., high-flow oxygen therapy, non-invasive ventilation) to facilitate liberation from mechanical ventilation and mitigate post-extubation failure.
