Piped-In 02 and In-Wall Suctioning Have Arrived!
Resulting Benefit and Value for your patient population includes:
Piped in 02 Offering Quieter, More Restful Stays…
- Allows for addition of Optiflow in rehab level of care on patients using 50% FIO2 or less as well as Oxymizer therapy up to 12 lpm of continuous oxygen flow.
- Use of Optiflow enhances mucocilliary function through warmed hydration resulting in enhanced mucocilliary secretion clearance. This results in increased comfort allowing for reduction in work of breathing and ease of breathing.
In Wall Suction Offering and Allowing For:
- Increased comfort for patients with loss of oral motor control who require frequent oral yankuer suction by allowing continuous suction not previously available.
- Increased pulmonary hygiene and ease of care resulting in increased comfort and less anxiety in our tracheostomy population.
