Furthermore, automation also allows a constant application of the recommended guidelines for efficient mechanical ventilation, thus resulting in improved care [14, 15]. The automation of mechanical ventilation can be used from intubation to extubation or only in the weaning phase [16]. It uses artificial intelligence technology that involves feedback loops [16]. There are currently three available systems: the SmartCare®/PS from Dräger, and ASV® and IntelliVent-ASV® from Hamilton. We will later explain how these systems work.

It has been suggested that SWUs could be of two types: (1) step-down or noninvasive respiratory units within acute care hospitals and (2) regional weaning centers separate from hospitals, where different studies have demonstrated that 34–60 % of patients can be successfully weaned from ventilatory support [3, 8]. Another subset of patients includes those who remain ventilator dependent, requiring long-term ventilator support, which could be provided as NIV in the home setting. Thus, different studies in various groups of PMV patients have shown that approximately 9 % were discharged home with partial ventilator support, with 1 % using NIV and 8 % requiring MV via the tracheostomy [3, 14].
