Care We Provide

Ventilator Weaning

Hampton Roads Specialty Hospital accepts ventilation patients with the ability to be weaned. Long-term ventilation patients do not meet LTACH criteria on the basis of ventilation alone. Some examples of ventilation weaning or management admissions are:

  • Ventilator dependent for greater than or equal to six hours a day
  • Poor tolerance of weaning
  • Uncontrolled coexisting diagnoses which impair weaning
  • Respiratory insufficiency with documented slow progression or worsening

Treatment will include:

  • 6-8 hours of direct nursing care per day
  • Respiratory therapy
  • Pulmonary assessment or management
  • Continuous SaO2 monitoring
