A Look Into The Power Of The Misty Fast™ Small-Volume Nebulizer
A few extra minutes can lead to improved care quality and patient experience.
Misty Fast™ will deliver aerosolized medication in less than half the time of standard small volume nebulizers. Respiratory care professionals can use this time to add value and provide quality care through effective education, improving patient adherence and compliance to medication and treatment plans.
Real Results of 272 direct patient observations comparing Misty Max 10™ and Misty Fast™ nebulizers.
Faster nebulizer run time +
With a nebulizer run time of 4.7 minutes, the average patient session time was reduced from 14.4 minutes with the Misty Max 10 to 9.2 minutes with the Misty Fast.
Lower concurrent therapy =
With nebulizer run time cut by more than half, concurrent therapy decreased as well.
Misty Max 10: Concurrent therapy observed in 43% of patients
Misty Fast: Concurrent therapy observed in 29% of patients
More patient education
As increased emphasis is placed on outpatient management and readmission prevention, patient education will remain a vital component of healthcare delivery. Education observations nearly doubled with Misty Fast compared to Misty Max 10.
Benefits of Misty Fast™
Better communication - The acronym AIDET (Acknowledge, Introduce, Duration, Explanation, Thank You) is a communication tool created by the Studer Group to help improve communication among healthcare providers to raise both patient and staff satisfaction. After switching from Misty Max 10 to Misty Fast, AIDET observations increased.
Delivering medication without the mask - When therapists spend less time at the bedside, aerosolized medication is administered using face masks more often, potentially increasing cost. When the Misty Fast nebulizer was used, face mask usage dropped when compared to other small volume nebulizers on the market, potentially leading to a cost savings opportunity in addition to providing quality care.
Increased hand washing - Misty Fast also helped customers improve their levels of hand washing.
