Business transformation made easier
Today’s sleep business is marked by widespread change and unexpected hurdles, causing DME providers to ask, “How can I turn today’s challenges to my advantage?” Philips Respironics, your ally in better sleep and breathing, responds with The ANSWER, an end-to-end solution that:
AVAPS-AE. Why it makes a difference.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has been added to the list of diagnoses being penalized by CMS if 30-day readmission rates are higher than expected. Philips Respironics’ end-to-end solutions can help to reduce hospital readmissions and the subsequent healthcare dollars spent on COPD management. Across the continuum of care, our treatment solutions and value-add programs are designed to provide comfortable and effective treatment as well as transition and treat patients at home.
Philips Respironics ventilators incorporate AVAPS-AE. Short for Average Volume Assured Pressure Support with Auto-EPAP, AVAPS-AE automatically titrates EPAP and regulates pressure support to a physician-defined tidal volume (based on ideal body weight), maximizes expiratory time to help avoid breath stacking, and adjusts the backup rate based on the patient’s spontaneous rate.
