dc.description.abstractThe aim of the study was to describe the factors that influence critical care nurses when deciding to wean patients from mechanical ventilation. The study adopted a qualitative methodology, using semi-structured interviews and a vignette. An invited sample of critical care nurses (n = 24) from one Irish intensive care unit was employed. Each nurse was interviewed once and a vignette was used to structure the interview questioning. The findings were analysed using thematic content analysis. Six major themes influencing nurses’ decision to wean emerged, as follows: physiological influences; clinical reassessment and decision making; the nurse's experience, confidence and education; the patient's medical history and current ventilation; the intensive care working environment; and use of protocols. The findings highlight the complex nature of weaning patients from mechanical ventilation and the major role of the nurse in this process.en_IE
