Rapid Shallow Breathing Index (RSBI)
Predicts successful extubation, to be used only as a single component of the clinical picture.
Tips for COVID-19: Use to determine floor vs. ICU. Predicts successful extubation.
Use in intubated patients breathing spontaneously who meet other clinical criteria for weaning from mechanical ventilation. The RSBI should not be the sole determinant of extubation.
