Vibra Hospital of Southeastern Massachusetts is proudly leading the way in the use of volumetric capnography to produce better ventilator weaning outcomes.
At Vibra Hospital of Southeastern Massachusetts, we like to think of volumetric capnography as the “GPS of ventilator management.” Volumetric capnography is a non-invasive, technological cardio-pulmonary monitoring system that can be used to guide ventilator treatment and the weaning process. Weaning refers to the gradual process by which medical professionals decrease ventilator support and individuals begin to breathe on their own again.
Volumetric capnography helps our team analyze every breath of a ventilated patient. Our skilled pulmonary specialists use this powerful tool to gain insight into their patients’ conditions. Using this system, they can use real-time data, along with their expertise, to make informed decisions about when to wean, when not to wean, and how quickly to wean.
