Foco na usabilidade do ventilador


A facilidade de uso influencia a segurança do paciente

A facilidade de uso, ou usabilidade, é a medida do potencial de um produto para atingir as metas do usuário.

Um dispositivo que tem alta usabilidade é fácil de entender e lembrar, permite o uso eficiente do tempo do operador, causa poucos erros e é esteticamente agradável. [1] Em resumo, a alta usabilidade influencia a segurança do paciente.[2] [3] [4]


A escolha do ventilador pode influenciar a segurança do paciente

Um estudo recente de usabilidade descobriu que ventiladores mais fáceis de usar estavam associados a uma maior segurança. [5] As diferenças entre ventiladores poderiam ser explicadas pelo design, qualidade de fabricação e expectativas do usuário.


Compare ventiladores em sua UTI

Cada UTI é diferente, e é importante selecionar um ventilador com o qual sua equipe se sinta confortável. O formulário abaixo descreve uma seleção de funções operacionais comumente usadas em um ventilador na UTI. Ele pode ajudá-lo a selecionar o ventilador mais adequado a você e à sua equipe.

Hemodynamic Management in Sepsis Patients

Everyone is at risk of developing sepsis. Globally, up to 50 million people are affected by sepsis, every year. Every 2.8 seconds, one patient dies from sepsis and associated complications. Often, it can be prevented by vaccination, clean water and hygiene, safe childbirth, and preventing hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). However, sepsis is often underdiagnosed, especially at an early stage where treatments are more successful.
