Course Description

After reading this article, the learner should be able to:
- identify the value of early extubation in improving resource utilization and outcome.
- distinguish patients who would be most suitable for an early extubation protocol after cardiac surgery.
- prepare resources and staff to optimize postoperative care of patients who are nocturnally extubated.
- design patient-specific protocols to identify circumstances and patients with greatest risk of increased mortality after nocturnal extubation.
- conclude that patients who are not promptly extubated (within 24 hours) after cardiac surgery are at risk of increased mortality with nocturnal extubation.
