Maximum Inspiratory Pressure - A Simple Way of Measurement

Farheen Begum | Rajendra Patel

Abstract: Timeliness of extubation is a classic example of clinical judgement. The ideal time of extubation should coincide with patient's reflex ability to protect against aspiration. Maximum inspiratory pressures reflect the strength of the muscles of respiration and hence the measurement of this could be an important adjuvant in developing a standard for determining the time at which the patient can safely be extubated. We have carried out our study on 90 subjects with ASA 1& 2. They were extubated either based on clinical parameters or inspiratory pressures. We concluded that the pressure vacuum gauge can be used as guide to extubation. However, more research into this area is still required to quantitate, and set standards as to formulate criteria that would be universal and easy to determine a cost a determined in a cost effective manner.
