• Safer and more clinically effective oxygen therapy
• Improved compliance with clinical recommendations and fewer complications related to hypoxemia and hyperoxia
• Significant reductions in hospital length of stay and cost of care
Tested on patients hospitalized for an exacerbation of COPD, FreeO2 has made it possible to reduce the length of hospital stays by around 30% (6.7 days compared with 9.5 days).
On the basis of this clinical study a medico-economic study taking into consideration the total of hospital costs at 180 days found an overall reduction of costs of care of around 21% per COPD patient.
Used in the emergency room to care for acute respiratory distress, FreeO2 makes it possible to treat patients more effectively (assessed according to the time spent by the patient at the target SpO2), to limit complications related to hypoxia and hyperoxia, to wean certain patients more quickly, and to avoid transferring patients to intensive care. Moreover, the study data points to a reduction in the workload of healthcare staff and greater compliance with clinical protocol.
