Abstract

Continuous administration of sedatives to the intensive care unit may increase the duration of mechanical ventilation, extend the patient's stay in the intensive care unit, and, subsequently, to the hospital. The objective was to improve the outcome of intubated patients in terms of the total duration of mechanical ventilation, the stay of these patients in the intensive care unit (ICU), and their mortality. This systematic review was conducted using Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. The literature search was conducted in October 2020. Articles were searched in the PubMed and Cochrane Library online databases. Data were extracted from all included research studies and analyzed thematically. The search duration was between 2008 and 2018. The studies do not document statistically significant differences with the parameters under study (total duration of mechanical ventilation, the total length of stay in the intensive care unit (ICU), and mortality), for a better outcome of intubated patients. The application of the daily sedation interruption (DSI) did not appear to affect the duration of Mechanical Ventilation, the length of stay in the ICU, and mortality in intubated patients.
