The article analyses the efficacy of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) to reduce the duration of mechanical ventilation and its associated complications, in patients on mechanical ventilation with persistent weaning failure. 43 patients in whom a spontaneous breathing trial failed for 3 consecutive days were examined in an intensive care unit. Patients were allocated to extubation and NIV treatment or continued mechanical ventilation with once-daily weaning attempts. It was found that patients in the NIV group had a shorter duration of invasive ventilation than did patients in the conventional-weaning group.
