Respiratory Knowledge Portal (RKP)
Respiratory Knowledge Portal provides a comprehensive set of analytics, delivering actionable information to help clinicians improve respiratory care processes through improving consistency with protocols. The suite of analytics consists of ventilator weaning, ventilator-associated event (VAE) surveillance, alarm policy compliance, sedation, and lung protection strategies.
RKP rounding dashboards enhance patient management by helping ICU clinicians increase efficiency in managing patients and reduce prolonged ventilation length of stay.
In addition to daily patient management, RKP provides process management tools enabling performance monitoring, problem areas discovery, and focus on best opportunities to improve.
Features & Benefits
- Comprehensive suite of analytics tools designed to enable clinical team to improve adherence to protocols.
- By surveilling ventilator-associated conditions, it can help comply with CDC VAE surveillance and reporting requirements.
- Cloud-based mobile-enabled application allows care teams to access data with internet access.

Inefficiencies and variance from weaning protocols can lead to prolonged ventilator support and secondary lung injury.
Unplanned, extended ICU care undermines patient comfort, raises care costs, and increases risk of physical and cognitive complications for patients.
RKP ventilator weaning analytics provides spontaneous breathing trial timeline and non-compliance markers to enable clinicians and supervisors to monitor adherence to weaning protocols, enabling ICU teams to reduce variances from hospital's best practices.
VAE is estimated to increase hospital LOS by 14 days and increase care cost by $41,000 per episode. Early identification translates into proactive management.
The VAE Surveillance dashboard enables clinicians to prioritize management of patients who are trending towards a VAE and those who have met or exceeded CDC criteria to avoid a costly episode.
In addition, RKP VAE surveillance automates documentation of events, enabling clinicians to spend more time with patients, and less time doing paperwork.
Lung protective strategies analytics measure whether or not the ventilator settings are outside of the hospital best practice guidelines which could indicate potential patient harm.
Alarm policy compliance analytics is related to ventilator volume and pressure alarms that will detect whether or not the alarm thresholds are set appropriately based on hospital's best practices.
Both features enable the hospitals to specify their unique rules through a consistent and user-friendly interface.
RKP's sedation analytics compares the events on the infusion pump with the hospital’s ICU sedation protocol to determine if sedation vacations are happening and whether they are happening at the right time. It also detects whether there are increases in sedation at night that represent an exception to best practice.
In combination with ventilation analytics, sedation analytics enables clinical management teams to inspect the harmonization between sedation vacations and spontaneous breathing trials.
RKP helps clinicians improve respiratory care processes
Data from studies have shown that using RKP could help improve weaning compliance and focused clinical process improvement.
