The PRODIGY study revealed that respiratory depression in patients receiving opioids while in the med-surg unit is associated with a significantly longer length of stay and increased hospital costs.2 Continuous respiratory monitoring of these patients with Nellcor™ pulse oximetry and Microstream™ capnography, paired with PRODIGY risk-stratification3 has a high chance of being cost-effective.2
The Microstream™ capnography and Nellcor™ monitoring systems should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis or therapy and are intended only as an adjunct in patient assessment.
Continuous pulse oximetry and capnography device pricing assumptions used list pricing for the following: a Capnostream™ portable respiratory monitor prorated over 7 years; a Microstream™ capnography filterline, and a disposable Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sensor, resulting in $52.73 in device costs per continuously monitored patient stay on a medical surgical floor. For intermittent pulse oximetry monitoring, device pricing consisted of a multiparameter monitor prorated over 7 years and a reusable pulse oximetry sensor, resulting in $0.68 in device costs per patient stay. Additional information on pricing and assumptions are available in the study publication.
This economic modeling tool provides an illustration of the potential reduction in respiratory depression rates, length of stay, and costs a customer might achieve by converting a portion of their respiratory monitoring usage.
Financial and clinical estimates generated by this model are based on the PRODIGY study and its publications, other published literature, Premier database analysis, Nellcor™ pulse oximetry and Microstream™ capnography product pricing, assumptions, and hospital-specific inputs if such were provided to customize the results of the model. For references of pre-set values, please refer to the references section of the model inputs.
Individual facility results may vary. Actual results will vary depending on various factors including the assumptions used, the accuracy of data, and future events.
