January 4, 2008 – Respironics’ new OmniLab multi-mode titration system is intended to help sleep technicians titrate more types of patients than ever before.
The device incorporates six modes of therapy with multiple technologies, which can be accessed directly from a PC. Sleep technicians can choose the most effective therapy for each patient, all from one system. Patients can be titrated without interruption as they won’t need to move to another room in order to be titrated on a different system.
Many therapy modes, some incorporating Respironics patented comfort technologies, are available to permit titration of almost any patient type, including pediatric patients (age seven and older and greater than 40 pounds, in CPAP, BiPAP S, BiPAP S/T, T and PC modes). The PC Direct software package reportedly makes changing patient mode settings and pressures quick and easy. A technician can simply adjust patient parameters directly from the computer monitor. For increased efficiency, the last patient pressure settings can be printed directly to a prescription sheet.
