triple bypass surgery

How long should my sister still be on a respiratorator after 7 dys of triple bypass surgery.  I'm very concerned.

I'm sorry to hear you're having some difficulty.  Bypass surgery is a major operation.  Usually patients are on the ventilator for about 24 hours after surgery, but some patients need to be on a ventilator longer if there were complications during the procedure or if the patient has other underlying diseases such as lung disease.  Please stay in close contact with your sister's physicians.  I hope she is extubated soon and on the road to recovery.  Best of luck!
