At Philips, we help create seamless solutions that connect people, technology and data. Because today health knows no bounds, and neither should healthcare.

 

With another AARC Congress behind us we are delighted to continue the experience of the patient care journey from hospital to home. Solutions for institutions, physicians and the entire care team designed to treat patients with advanced technologies and empower both patients and clinicians.

Coughassist

Philips CoughAssist in the hospital

 

Mark Fleshman, BS, RRT-ACCS

Product Application Specialist, Philips

Ventilated patients are susceptible to secretions and excess secretions may contribute to extubation failure. Ineffective airway clearance is a key contributor to the need for reintubation. MI-E provides significant advantages over suctioning and provide more complete secretion clearance. Inclusion of MI-E along with non-invasive ventilation may reduce re-intubation rates with consequent reduction in post-extubation ICU length of stay.
NIV

Dedicated to successful NIV – titration

 

Winnie Sywulak

Sr. Clinical Education Manager, Philips

A new application that offers clinicians guidance on how to minimize their patient’s work of breathing, alleviate their patient’s dyspnea and ultimately improve the patient’s hypercarbia. NIV success is linked with optimized ventilation support and patient comfort.

 

This application also offers clinicians at the bed a tool to provide guidance when assessing patient comfort with their mask selection, fit and patient/ventilator synchrony. The app prompts key questions in order to identify signs of improvement and a guide to strategies to combat complications that may occur with the use of NIV.

Care orchestrator

Patient management with Philips Care Orchestrator and Philips Trilogy

 

Julie Yarascavitch

Clinical Respiratory Global Product Manager, Ventilation, Philips Respironics

With Care Orchestrator, you can remotely monitor and manage a broad range of patients across all sleep and respiratory therapies to improve operational efficiency. Care Orchestrator is integrated, connected, and empowered to help you achieve the best health outcomes for patients. Connected Trilogy is monitoring your patient even when you cannot, helping you effectively co-ordinate care for the patients that need you the most.
Meeting in hospital

High flow nasal cannula vs. NIV

 

Tom Piraino, RRT, FCSRT

Clinical Specialist-Mechanical Ventilation, St. Michael’s Hospital 
Centre of Excellence in Mechanical Ventilation (CoEMV), Toronto, Ontario

To help clinicians identify the most evidence-based therapy for a range of respiratory conditions, Tom Piraino reviewed the clinical literature supporting the use of noninvasive ventilation and high flow oxygen therapy. He also compared his findings to the recently released American Thoracic Society guidelines for noninvasive ventilation.
OSA

Treating OSA in the hospital

 

Bob Campbell, RRT, FAARC

National Ventilation Technical Specialist, Philips Healthcare

Early recognition and diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is important to initiating effective treatment that can dramatically improve the patients’ well-being and overall health.  Patients with known OSA commonly present to the hospital for surgery and treatment of other acute disease processes that would require continued CPAP or BiPAP therapy in order to reduce complication risk and severity.  More commonly, a patient with multiple risk factors for OSA will require hospitalization and should be screened to determine next steps or treatments.  These patients, without a formal sleep study or diagnosis, may also benefit from CPAP and BiPAP therapy during their hospital stay.  Recent advances in auto-titrating modes are now readily available in a low-acuity, hospital based device called the V30, which may allow early and effective therapy during the acute hospitalization and also facilitate a smooth transition from hospital to home.
