Yale New Haven (Conn.) Health System is implementing Capsule Technologies' Ventilated Patient Surveillance workstation to help monitor ventilated COVID-19 patients.

The VPS workstation evaluates live streaming data from ventilators and sends relevant clinical alerts to respiratory therapists, pulmonologists and intensivists. 

With the pandemic creating a surge in patients who need acute respiratory care, Yale New Haven will use the VPS workstation to help limit staff members' exposure to COVID-19 and reduce personal protective equipment use. The technology will also allow respiratory therapists to guide less experienced staff as they treat patients at their bedside.
