Description

For families facing end-of-life decisions for their critically ill children, compassionate extubation at home is a valuable service that pediatric intensivists can provide. Compassionate extubation at home is resource intensive and can be logistically challenging. Discouragingly, guidance on compassionate extubation at home in the literature is limited. We developed an evidence- and experience-based framework for compassionate extubation at home addressing common planning challenges and resource management. Our objective is to share this framework and an accompanying checklist, so that pediatric intensivists in other institutions can adapt these tools for their use, reducing barriers to providing compassionate extubation at home for critically ill children at the end of life.
