Medical Ventilation: improve clinical outcomes and strengthen regulatory compliance
According to recent studies the trend is to prescribe sedatives and analgesics to the critical ill. And although these prescriptions are designed to relieve pain and anxiety, reduce stress and oxygen consumption, and to prevent patient ventilator dysynchrony they also present negative and possibly deadly clinical outcomes.
Hospital personnel understand that even if exacting paper-based protocols are in place, adhering to them puts a strain on both nurses and respiratory therapists and drastically increases hospital costs for the patient.
With paper-based protocols hospital clinicians are required to evaluate and analyze a large range of individual physiologic variables, as well as the cardiovascular and psychological states of the patient before starting ventilator wean protocols.
The healthcare industry‘s “Triple Aim” strategy : improving the experience of care, improving the health of populations, and reducing per capita costs of healthcare” means finding ways, through technology, that will free up man hours, and improve the patient’s quality of life.
Reliable systems capable of connecting not only a wide range of medical devices, as well as, medical devices manufactured by different vendors, have been a challenge.
Bernoulli continues to meet that challenge with its Bernoulli One™ platform, a clinical middleware platform that incorporates an integrated, end to end solution for device integration, alarm management, real-time clinical surveillance and Virtual ICU that can support respiratory workflow and provide a uniform approach to ventilator weaning and empower staff with the needed knowledge to improve clinical outcomes.
