Context: Weaning induced cardiac dysfunction can occur without underlying heart disease. Changes in intrathoracic pressure, systemic vascular resistance, preload and afterload leading to heart-lung interactions are the possible explanatory mechanisms
Aims: The aim of the current study was whether the assessment and identification of cardiac dysfunction induced during the weaning process could predict the outcome of extubation.
