Shortening the Length of In-Hosital Training is Associated with Increased Readmissions for Children Requiring Chronic Mechanical Ventilation

Introduction: Children with severe pulmonary or neurologic disorders may require chronic mechanical ventilation, and undertaking this at home, is both cost effective and preferable from many perspectives. Paramount to the success of this process is appropriate caregiver training.We recently changed our practice to decrease rehabilitation in-hospital educational training from 6 weeks to 4 weeks, and then assessed the effect of this change on early hospital and emergency department re-admission rates.
