The Dolores One can be used for a wide range of non-invasive ventilation patients in nearly any setting. This simple yet innovative technology is designed to increase the quality of care and quality of life for each patient while saving time and reducing costs for the physician, hospital, and/or long term care facility.
Direct physician-patient communication is the backbone of medical practice. This two-way exchange of information allows the physician to gauge the mental condition of the patient and to receive first-hand feedback regarding treatment. The Dolores One allows the patient to actively participate in their care, reducing stress and saving time for both patient and physician alike.
Many hospital administrative systems require direct verbal communication with a patient in regard to understanding and approving procedures, insurance details, and end of life decisions. Currently, these interviews require removal of a non-invasive ventilator to allow the patient to speak directly to the administrator, which can result in low blood oxygen levels and hypoxic dementia, altering the patient’s mental capabilities. Hospitals that require direct verbal patient interface for administrative purposes also require a respiratory specialist to be present to remove the mask and to monitor patient condition during the interruption of treatment. The Dolores One can potentially eliminate the need to dispatch respiratory personnel for administrative visits, therefore reducing cost of care and the complexities of logistics and coordination of personnel.
Providing for patients’ communications needs during treatment allows them to maintain their voice throughout their care cycle, allowing you to better serve their needs. The public reporting of HCAHPS provides the patient’s perspective of care and will have a growing impact on patient choices and thereby future revenues.
Leasing options for hospitals and long term care facilities are available.
