Self efficacy, Weaning respirator


Professional nurses play an important role in providing care for patients. In particular, patients who are admitted to the intensive care unit with respiratory failure must use a ventilator for a long time without being able to weaning the ventilator. It was found that most cases were caused by physiological and perceived factors. Under perceived factors, self-efficacy, can be developed by using 4 sources of information (1) Modeling (2) Mastery experiences (3) Emotional arousal and (4) Verbal persuasion (Bandura, 1977). If nurses are able to utilize all 4 sources to develop the patient's ability to perceive their own abilities weaning respirator with encouragement to patients, this can be a guideline that will help patients achieve the success of a ventilator as expected.
