Abstract

The case is 43 years old woman referred to emergency department of our hospital with quadriplegia and severe respiratory insufficiency due to C5-C6 injury after falling. She discharged from ICU after fixation of the lesion and successful weaning. We evaluated electrical activity of diaphragm signal (Edi), Respiratory drive (P100) during one month period. We detected increase in level of electrical activity of diaphragm and respiratory drive during weaning of patient.
