ABSTRACT
The article describes the evidence and clinical implications of using automatic tube compensation (ATC) during weaning from mechanical ventilation. Described as a new mode of mechanical ventilation, ATC is available on newer mechanical ventilators and is designed to be used during weaning from mechanical ventilation. A key component in successful weaning from mechanical ventilation is the optimization of the work of breathing (WOB).
