Calculate the Rapid Shallow Breathing Index (RSBI) also known as Tobin Index. A patient who has a respiratory rate of 36 breaths/min and a tidal volume of 300 mL/breath. Will this patient be successful weaning from ventilator?
Select all that apply.
RBSI = f/Vt
RSBI = 36 breaths/min / 300 mL/breath.
RSBI = 36 breaths/min / 0.3 L/breath.
RSBI = 120 breaths/min/L
Successful weaning from the Ventilator requires a RSBI of <105
