Most patients are readily liberated from mechanical ventilation (MV) support, however, 10\% - 15\% of patients experience failure to wean (FTW). FTW patients account for approximately 40\% of all MV days and have significantly worse clinical outcomes. MV induced inspiratory muscle weakness has been implicated as a contributor to FTW and recent work has documented inspiratory muscle weakness in humans supported with MV.
