WALTHAM, Mass., May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Respiratory Motion, Inc. (RMI) today announced its participation in the 2016 American Association of Critical Care Nurses National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition (http://bit.do/aacn-NTI) taking place May 16-19 in New Orleans, LA. Committed to helping health care organizations meet their biggest respiratory challenges, Respiratory Motion will showcase it's ExSpiron™ Minute Ventilation Monitor, the first and only non-invasive method of rapidly determining a patient's respiratory status.
"We are experiencing one of the most challenging times in health care history - the rise of chronic diseases, growing and aging populations, and the migration to value based care," said Jenny Freeman, MD, President and CEO, Respiratory Motion, Inc. "These challenges require clinicians to use more informative and effortless monitoring technologies to support their decision-making, while thinking about patient safety and comfort. Our goal in inventing ExSpiron™ was to do just that – become the ECG measurement for the lungs – a standard in Monitoring Minute Ventilation to help improve patient outcomes, reduce costs and improve quality care."
Respiratory Monitoring: Effectively Manage Patients Prescribed Opioids; and New Knowledge of RD
Chris Viscopoulos, MD, triple boarded in anesthesia, critical care, and pain management has shown in studies at Harvard that using ExSpiron™ to monitor Minute Ventilation is critical in the early detection of respiratory depression for patients prescribed opioids in ICUs, PACUs, General Floor, Labor & Delivery, and Procedural Sedation units. Nurses using the ExSpiron™ Minute Ventilation monitor have found it provides immediate information for patients experiencing respiratory depression.
The RMI booth (#2155) will also spotlight and sponsor ExpoED Clinical education sessions, which grant Continuing Education Recognition Points (CERPs), for a session entitled, "Waiting to Exhale," presented by Dennise Haughton, MSN, ARNP, ACNP-BC, CCRN. "Nursing response to abnormal vital signs is one of the most important levers and interventions in patient safety by providing timely recognition of early clinical deterioration," said Dennise Haughton, critical care nursing veteran of over 15 years. "The use of Minute Ventilation (MV) Monitoring will generate new knowledge on how to best identify and respond to early signs of respiratory decline."
