We make ICU Beds and more specifically a very special one that helps with ARDS patients and therefore particularly helpful for Corona Virus Patients.
Early Mobility decreases days on the ventilator by 1.5 days and ICU days by 2 for patients with ARDs -Taito et al, 2016
Patients with ARDS can only tolerate a little activity at a time so little and often throughout the day is best for them
Early Mobility for patients who are ventilated can take several people which increases risk of exposure and uses of multiple sets of PPE.
Due to Covid-19 being airborne, minimizing movement in/out of room of equipment and caregivers even more important
Problem Solved with Total Lift Bed (TLB)
Use of The TLB enables Early Mobility with 1-2 staff. The BED does the lifting.
TLB facilitates Gradual, little and Often: Breathing, Upright Tolerance, Exercise
Minimal risk of cross-contamination of equipment
Use of the TLB frees up staff to work with other patients
TLB removes risk of caregiver injury from physically assisting the patient to stand up
Shorten the length of stay? Please see this QI Project from the University of Texas showing a big reduction in LOS.
