Nowadays, increasing numbers of patients require treatment by mechanical ventilation with upward trends worldwide. Although mechanical ventilation saves patient’s life, long-term use of mechanical ventilation has impacts in many aspects such as body, psychological and economic losses. So evaluating to recover the cause of use mechanical ventilation, preparing muscle respiration’s patients and physiological factors including perception factors. In the weaning process, the patients have to adjust to breathing with mechanical ventilation to breathing by themselves. That results will make patients passed spontaneous breathing trial and successful weaning. Nurses’role to prepare readiness and manage factors lengthening the duration of spontaneous breathing trials in order to reduce complications from mechanical ventilation and long intubation time.
