unplanned extubation (UE), which is defined as deliberate self-extubation by a patient receiving mechanical ventilation support or accidental extubation by staff nursing and medical procedures.
Assess the effect of accidental and self-extubation on mechanically ventilated patients ’outcomes.
A descriptive research design was used in this study.
what is the effect of accidental and self-extubation on mechanically ventilated patients ’outcomes?
This study was conducted in general and trauma intensive care units at Assuit University Hospital.
sixty critically ill patients attached with the endotracheal tube and mechanical ventilation
The majority of the studied critically ill patient had respiratory consequences after UE and statistically significant differences between self-extubation and accidental extubation patients regarding occurrences of aspiration and tachycardia on the first day.
Unplanned extubation (UE) is a frequent event after endotracheal intubation with mechanical ventilation (MV). Selfextubation is the most common type of UE and accidental removal of the tube is a very poor patient outcome and needs more aggressive management than patients with self-extubation.
