Nurse lead weaning protocol

  1. Hi guys,

    Does your facility have a nursing lead weaning protocol?
    Is there a web page where I can access such protocols?

    Vent weaning? If so you will probably only find that in CVICU on fresh cases. After pulmonary is consulted they will handle the vent. I can't imagine any ventilated pt. other than a fresh CABG not being followed by pulmonary.

    Or do you mean weanings gtts or something else?

    I thought it said lead wearing protocol... I was thinking "whenever we use Fluoro!"
