Implementation of Evidence Based Respiratory Care

Dean Hess, PhD, RRT, FAARC

Show description Hide description

Dean Hess

Evidenced-based medicine has been a focus in medicine over the last two decades. The best evidence is based on randomized controlled trials, meta-analyses and guidelines using all possible levels of evidence. The evidence for many respiratory therapy procedures and in some cases lack of evidence has been well described. How do managers put evidence into practice in their departments? What are the roadblocks? Who are the stakeholders? These issues will be discussed relative to the importance of the survival of the profession.

9:15 a.m.–9:50 a.m. | CRCE: 0.58

Doing What’s Right

Garry Kauffman, RRT, MPA, FACHE, FAARC

Show description Hide description

Garry Kauffman

Managing a respiratory therapy department requires several skills that include understanding what therapists do at the bedside and how to track and account for that work. The history of the profession has led us to a crossroads as the health care system evolved from an emphasis on productivity to an emphasis on outcomes. Einstein said, “Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted.” How do respiratory therapy departments determine what ‘counts’ and how do we demonstrate value to patients, hospitals, and the U.S. health system? The future of the profession requires that we evolve with the changing metrics used to evaluate services. This presentation will explore this management shift.

10:00 a.m.–10:35 a.m. | CRCE: 0.58

Value Efficiency in Respiratory Care

Robert L. Chatburn, MHHS, RRT, RRT-NPS, FAARC

Show description Hide description

Robert Chatburn

The practice of respiratory therapy emerged from a fee for service model and charging for procedures. With changes in reimbursement, productivity became an important metric for justifying staff and defining the role of the respiratory therapist. In the current environment, respiratory therapy should move to a value efficiency model. A change from counting how much we do, to doing what counts. How is value efficiency defined? What is the process required to move to a value efficiency model? These thoughts are integrated into a plan to change and create a path for the future of the profession, which will be reviewed in this presentation.

Practice variability in the pediatric intensive care unit is best exemplified by our heterogeneous and inconsistent (non-) invasive respiratory support practices. It is driven by lack of high-quality, robust scientific evidence and by personal beliefs, institutional preferences and on what works in adults. This may be especially reflected in the use of non-invasive modalities such as high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy and non-invasive ventilation. This pro-con debate provides the attendees with two opposing views on the role of post-extubation respiratory support, by discussing the benefits and drawbacks.
