This study investigated the temporal distribution of the defining characteristics Response to Dysfunctional Ventilatory Weaning. Aimed to describe the conformation of the chronological distribution of the defining characteristics of this diagnostic in ventilated patients during the prolonged interruption of mechanical ventilation and verify the existence of a prevailing weather pattern. This is a descriptive study and exploratory quantitative approach. The subjects were adult clients admitted for clinical reasons in the Intensive Care Unit, Hospital Pro-Cardiac under prolonged mechanical ventilation and who were being weaned. With the results was obtained to confirm the hypothesis of a temporal distribution prevailing in the observed sample. It was possible to distinguish the main intervals of observation / demonstration of the defining characteristics, namely: early, intermediate and late. Regarding the management of the weaning process could be given some contributions to better assessments of protocol.
