Volume guarantee ventilation or volume-targeted ventilation is something all units will be familiar with, but is it being applied in every potential scenario? Can you use it on your transport ventilator? Perhaps some process mapping in the Neonatal subgroup of your PERIPrem champions, going out to the whole Neonatal team for ideas, could optimise care? Further ideas and resources are available below.
We encourage you to look across the three “capsules” of Process, Training and Education and Communications and Engagement when planning and implementing any changes, we know from experience that action needs to be taken across all three capsules to see a progress. These areas will be covered in the unit-level training.
Pay attention to how you will embed and sustain the improvements you have made and you can use the embedding and sustaining change tool (coming soon) to shape your thinking in doing so.
We have a package of resources to support implementation of this PERIPrem bundle element. Please watch the video and download the resources to find out more.
