How can we get patients safely off the ventilators following a traumatic brain injury or neurosurgery? How do we plan to avoid unnecessary re-intubations and prolonged ventilation? How could we reduce ventilator days and length of stay in ICU?

Weaning and Extubation in Neurocritical Care Network banner

Our network brings together an inter-professional team who are interested in ventilator weaning and extubation in neurocritical care. We aim to:

  • conduct interprofessional and interdisciplinary evidence-based projects, reviews and consensus statements on how to get patients safely off the ventilators in different categories of neuromedical and neurosurgical patients.
  • collaborate with critical care units within the UK and worldwide to integrate interdisciplinary research on this topic.
  • hold regular lectures and seminars pertinent to current trends and state of the art.
  • identify research priorities based on clinical practice and integrate cutting-edge neuroscience to answer difficult questions in this area.

We collaborate with Louise Rose, Professor of Critical Care Nursing, King's College London.
