Ursachen und Pathophysiologie des Weaningversagens

  • Hans-Joachim Kabitz
  • Rolf Dembinski


Das Verständnis der Ursachen und der Pathophysiologie des Weaningversagens sind für den Intensivmediziner essentiell. Die akute respiratorische Insuffizienz (ARI) stellt den Beginn einer Kausalkette dar, an deren Ende häufig das Weaningversagen steht. Grundsätzlich muss die hypoxische von der hyperkapnischen respiratorischen Insuffizienz sowohl in Bezug auf Ätiologie (z. B. ARDS, COPD) als auch Therapie (z. B. Beatmungsmodalitäten) sowie Outcome und langfristiger Behandlungsoptionen (z. B. nicht-invasive Heimbeatmung) unterschieden werden.
