Abstract

Sleep influences patient-ventilator interaction. Adjustment of ventilator settings in critically ill patients may require understanding and monitoring of the influence of the sleep-wakefulness state on patient-ventilator interaction. Research studies of patient-ventilator interactions should be controlled for the confounding influence of changes in the sleep-wakefulness state.
