“Our hospital deals with an increasing number of seriously ill patients. For some decisions, I’d really prefer to have anaesthesia and ventilation data be displayed together with the hemodynamic patient status!”
The Perseus A500 workstation features seamless integration of data of different modalities. The workstation integrates patient monitoring, ventilation, anaesthesia and IT applications at the point of care on one single screen. Clinical staff will make better informed decisions with a consolidated view. This can optimise clinical workflow and enable seamless interoperability.
“Personally, I’m sometimes surprised how little some hospitals care about the possible development of atelectasis during general anaesthesia. Perhaps because we don’t see the immediate effect while performing lung recruitment manoeuvres”
The Perseus A500 workstation features a Lung Recruitment Procedure window as a decision support tool and device connectivity allows relating hemodynamic and ventilation data to assess the effect of therapeutic procedures. This supports the challenging lung recruitment manoeuvres which helps to improve the patients’ condition, reduce complications, length of stay and the number of re-admissions.
“One of our major challenges during abdominal surgeries is to guarantee patient’s hemodynamic stability and to avoid multi organ dysfunction by measuring increased systolic pressure variation.”
The PPV/SPV tool provides clinicians with complete control over the calculation for more precise results, the tool is not dependent on an algorithm that averages the values over a period and can be used with a respiratory reference from the Perseus A500. When combined with the Analysis Tool, the Clinician is provided with a comprehensive view of respiratory and hemodynamic data.
“I’m working most of the time in Critical Care often applying APRV for special patients. I find when I am supporting a case in the OR and see the deterioration of all my lung protection measures, I’m not in the best mood!”
The Perseus A500 comes equipped with Airway Pressure Release Ventilation (APRV) for spontaneous breathing on all pressure levels. This provides patient with continuity of therapy quality throughout their hospital stay.
