C Subira, G Hernandez, A Vazquez, et al JAMA, 2019, 321(22):2175-2182


This study aims to answer the question of what is a more effective spontaneous breathing trials (SBT) in terms of assessing readiness for extubation - 30 minutes of pressure support ventilation (PSV) or 2 hours of T-piece ventilation?
