Have you ever looked back and asked yourself, why didn’t I notice that before? Or, how did I miss that? Whatever ‘that’ may be – When you place these same principled questions into your own clinical experience with an adverse patient event, it often raises more frustrating questions, than answers. Until now.

We’ve all heard horror stories about generally healthy patients who undergo low-risk elective surgery and end up in the ICU or even worse – die from complications. How does this happen and why? One very concerning cause is opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD).

Reducing false alarms has been the subject of countless meetings, lectures and peer-reviewed studies. Many approaches have been identified for reducing alarms in high-acuity settings. For example, Görges  showed that a 14-second delay before alarm presentation would reduce non-actionable alarms by 50%. A 19-second delay would reduce this further to 67%.
The increasing complex state of health care and compounding nursing vacancies are playing a role in un-achieved outcomes and putting patients at risk. This is the reality that most hospitals face today. More critically-ill patients are seeking care and are being cared for by fewer clinicians.
