“Best Practices for Transitioning Patients From ICU to Step-down Unit: A Recent Study”

May 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saxe Communications & Philips* present..."Best Practices for Transitioning Patients From ICU to Step-down Unit: A Recent Study" Patients requiring specialized respiratory care often have extended stays in the intensive/critical care settings. Financial constraints, patient flow, unit management, and limited resources make finding safe, alternative sites important. A recently completed 13-year study in a Madrid teaching hospital demonstrated that through their protocol, including transitioning from the use of mechanical ventilation to non-invasive ventilation, patient outcomes were comparable to patients in the…

“Respiratory Compromise: Risk Prediction on the General Care Floor”

May 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saxe Communications & Medtronic present*... as part of the New Monitoring Strategies to Improve Outcomes series, "Respiratory Compromise: Risk Prediction on the General Care Floor" Opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD), a form of respiratory compromise, is one of the leading avoidable patient safety issue. Respiratory compromise, increases morbidity and mortality as well hospital inpatient costs. This presentation will discuss the results of a recent, multi-center study PRODIGY designed to identify people at high risk for OIRD. Results showed that more than…

“Alternatives to Intubation for the Older Patient in the Emergency Department”

June 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saxe Communications & Philips* present..."Alternatives to Intubation for the Older Patient in the Emergency Department" Intubation in the emergency department is common and can prevent a patient from dying from a reversible condition. While the benefits of such intubation for young and otherwise healthy patients are clear, it is less obvious whether the benefits of intubation outweigh the risks in older patients. A new study by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital investigated the outcomes for patients aged 65 and…

“Are HFOT & NIV Complementary for Acute Respiratory Failure?”

June 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saxe Communications & Philips* present..."Are HFOT & NIV Complementary for Acute Respiratory Failure?" With the widespread utilization of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) for the treatment of respiratory failure, as well as the increasing utilization of humidified high flow oxygen therapy (HFOT) for the treatment of various forms of respiratory compromise, clinicians now have a broader range of noninvasive tools aimed at managing acute respiratory failure. However, the precise indication of each one of these therapies is still a question of debate.…
