The present invention relates to a system and a corresponding method for estimating the respiratory drive of mechanically ventilated patients. More particularly, for apportioning this respiratory drive into one, or more, components related to chemical drive - i.e. the drive due to the chemoreceptor response - and / or muscular drive - i.e. the contraction of respiratory muscles, for example the diaphragm.
