The app tracks weaning readiness in real time and sends you remote notifications the minute your patients meet your identified criteria. Once you initiate a Spontaneous Breathing Trial (SBT), it helps you track your patient's breath-by-breath progress throughout the trial - from wherever you are.
Protocolised weaning has been shown to:
- Reduce time on vent by more than a day([FOOTNOTE=Blackwood B, Burns KE, Cardwell CR, O’Halloran P. Protocolized versus non-protocolized weaning for reducing the duration of mechanical ventilation in critically ill adult patients. The Cochrane database of systematic reviews. 2014(11):CD006904.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
- Reduce a patient's length of stay in the ICU by more than a day([FOOTNOTE=Burns K, Meade M, Lessard M, et al. Wean earlier and automatically with new technology (the WEAN study): A multicenter, Pilot randomized controlled trial. Am J Resp Crit Care Med. 2013;187(11): 1203-1211.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
- Cut the risk of ventilator-associated pneumonia by as much as 35%([FOOTNOTE=Dries DJ, McGonigal MD, Malian MS, Bor BJ, Sullivan C.
