Abstract: The use of invasive mechanical ventilatory support has been increasingly used in the treatment of respiratory insufficiency, since it replaces the respiratory work while reversing the pathological processes that led to its necessity, allowing the recovery of respiratory function. The critical patient’s ventilatory weaning requires a rigorous assessment by qualified professionals to reduce complications and the eventual need for (re)intubation, referring to the design and implementation of rehabilitation nursing programs. The nurse specialist in rehabilitation nursing intervenes in an early, autonomous, and differentiated way, avoiding complications and incapacities, promoting effective ventilatory weaning. This integrative review of the literature made evident the gains obtained in the critical patient undergoing invasive mechanical ventilation and included in an early rehabilitation program, revealing significant impact for both the patient and the hospital institution.
