  1. Cst,rs = static compliance of the respiratory system; f = respiratory rate; f/Vt ratio = frequency to tidal volume ratio; IWI = integrative weaning index; LR+ = likelihood ratio of positive test; LR- = likelihood ratio of negative test; P 0.1 = airway occlusion pressure; PaO2/FiO2 ratio = ratio of arterial oxygen tension to fraction of inspired oxygen; P(W+/T+) = probability for weaning success if test is positive; P(W+/T-) = probability for weaning success if test is negative; Vt = tidal volume.
