Medtronic Webinar Wednesdays
Experience a robust curriculum to expand your knowledge of a series of clinical technologies including capnography, brain monitoring, ventilation, remote patient monitoring; esophageal and gastric diseases, chronic and colorectal diseases, hepatopancreatic biliary diseases, and lung health.
Several times per month we welcome guest speakers and subject matter experts who share insights and best practices across a variety of respiratory and gastroenterology-hepatology topics, including capnography, brain monitoring, ventilation, remote patient monitoring; esophageal and gastric diseases, chronic and colorectal diseases, hepatopancreatic biliary diseases, and lung health.
PRODIGY is a Medtronic-sponsored, prospective, multi-center, international cohort study to identify patients at risk of opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD), a potentially life-threatening form of respiratory compromise. The PRODIGY study found a 46 percent incidence of respiratory depression in patients on the GCF receiving parenteral opioids.

Reclaim Your Time Where You Practice
Focusing on your patients is what you do best. But mounting demands on your time can heighten stress and put patient safety at risk. It’s time you got your time back.
FROM MINUTES WASTED TO MINUTES SAVED
Patients call from opposite ends of the floor. Alarms ring constantly. Computer delays interrupt workflows.
These daily realities can result in frequent interruptions — an average of 46.3 interruptions per shift — and waste up to 10 percent of a clinician's time. See how clinicians are managing their growing challenges.
FEWER INTERRUPTIONS, BETTER INTERVENTIONS
Making alarms smarter is not just about reducing false alerts, but also about improving patient outcomes. That’s why clinicians are seeking new ways to optimize alarms — including customizing parameters and using data algorithms.
Here’s why: After implementing automated vital signs monitors at 12 general wards, one study found a 13 percent increase in survival rate.
