The purpose

Extubation is a crucial step when patients are being weaned from mechanical ventilator support. Indeed, the patient has to face an increasing burden imposed to the ventilation system. The ability to overcome this event will determine the patient survival. A warning signal could be very useful is this situation. 2 recent studies have shown that measuring diaphragmatic cupolas and muscular fibers thickening fraction could help to spot a population with a high risk of "diaphragmatic weakness", characterized by a high failure extubation rate. This study aims to verify that this kind of group of patients does exist.
