Survival from prolonged mechanical ventilation (PMV) has been attributed to many physiological factors including age, underlying disease, pulmonary function, and preoperative ejection fraction. While many physiological causes have been associated with successful liberation from, the contribution of psychosocial factors are not as well delineated. The identification of salient psychosocial features relative to survival will assist health care providers (HCPs) in providing a more holistic approach to the care of patients requiring. It is postulated that if HCPs were cognizant of these factors, it would augment the development of strategies that could contribute to improved outcomes for patients and to a reduction in morbidity and mortality. Therefore, the purpose of this phenomenological qualitative study is to describe the lived experience of survivors and to delineate the essential psychosocial components that contribute to their successful liberation from. Guided by the phenomenological approach of Edmund Husserl, seven survivors were asked to describe what is was like to survive. Each telephone interview was conducted at the participant's convenience and tape-recorded after receiving verbal consent. At the end of each interview, descriptions were summarized to allow each participant the opportunity to add or clarify the summation. Content analysis will be performed using the Giorgi method. The unit of analysis for the investigation will be the collective experiences of the participants. Data analysis, findings, and implications are expected to be completed December of 2001.
