The work of breathing (WOB) is the amount of energy, which is consumed by the respiratory muscles, in order to perform one complete respiratory cycle. In several medical conditions, WOB might rise to a critical level which could necessitate initiation of mechanical ventilation (MV) or complicate weaning of the patient from MV. Continue reading
