Caring for Ventilated Patients across the Health System

Caring for ventilated patients across an entire hospital or health system is no easy task.
In part because ventilation methods and modes can vary by patient and condition.
Because settings and therapy plans may be different for each patient, respiratory therapists (RT) must visit each patient room to review ordered settings and make ventilator adjustments based on the patient’s current state.
This is time consuming to say the least.
More importantly, if a patient’s condition changes, a timely adjustment to the ventilator may be necessary – but the caregiver may not be at the patient’s bedside.
With the advent of non-invasive ventilation and moving of ventilated patients to lower acuity departments in the hospital, .

RT coverage and patient prioritization have become even more challenging
Managing Ventilator Alarms and Improving Ventilated Patient Safety

Managing ventilator alarms is not a new topic of conversation.
In fact, ECRI Institute highlights ventilator alarms in their 2015 and 2017 Top 10 Health IT Hazards reports.
More specifically, the 2015 report lists ‘Ventilator Disconnections Not Caught because of Mis-set or Missed Alarms’ as the fifth most hazardous issue and the 2017 report lists ‘Missed Ventilator Alarms Can Lead to Patient Harm’ as the third most hazardous.

According to a publication by the Airway Safety Movement

unplanned extubation (UE) is a frequent, costly, and preventable adverse event for ventilated patients that serious, sometimes fatal consequences.
Every year in the U.
alone, unplanned extubation impacts more than 121,000 patients, causes over 36,000 cases of ventilator-associated pneumonia, leads to more than 33,000 preventable deaths, and adds more than $4.9 billion in wasteful healthcare costs.

A Real-Time View of the Patient’s Current State

The Capsule Ventilated Patient Surveillance application includes a clinical surveillance module that makes caring for ventilated patients across all departments within a health system safer and more efficient.
Capsule enables remote data access for patients on ventilation and empowers the RT to determine if changes in therapy should be considered or if immediate response is required.
More than improving workflows, better care for patients on ventilators can help to improve operational efficiencies such as reduced length of stay and costs.
Ventilated Patient Surveillance also has the ability to integrate with nurse call systems to improve workflow and create a quieter care environment.
When a vent alarm is triggered, the system can light the nurse call dome light outside the patient room which provides a silent visual indication of which patient room is experiencing an alarming condition.

With Capsule’s ventilator integration and real-time data

clinicians have a better picture of the patient’s situation and can make more informed decisions.

With Ventilated Patient Surveillance

hospitals can better manage their ventilated patients and associated alarm conditions while also reducing nuisance alarms, quieting patient rooms, and improving outcomes.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering to add continuous clinical surveillance for ventilated patients to your Capsule Medical Device Information Platform (MDIP) installation at no additional charge.
Take advantage of this limited-time offer.
