EVALUATION OF AN UNINTERRUPTABLE POWER SUPPLY SYSTEM TO IMPROVE PATIENT SAFETY DURING HFOV Justin Hotz, RCP, RRT-NPS; Edwin Khatchetourian, MS, RCP, RRT-NPS; Aaron Clute, RCP, RRT-NPS; Ed Guerrero, BS, RCP, RRT-NPS; Dan Villareal, MBA, RCP, RRT; Leo Langga, MBA, RCP, RRT-NPS Children‘s Hospital Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA The Sensormedics High Frequency Oscillator Ventilator (HFOV) 3100A and 3100B are frequently used in the management of critically ill neonatal and pediatric patients. Currently, these ventilators do not have a backup battery, and are at risk of terminating ventilation during a power failure. There is few published literature addressing this patient safety risk. We evaluated an uninterruptable power supply (UPS) system for use with the Sensormedics 3100 A and B as a power back-up to provide uninterrupted ventilation during power failure. The TRIPP-LITE UPS system supporting the Sensormedics 3100B gave its first warning alarm at 35 minutes of use. Five minutes later, it gave its second warning alarm, and completely turned off after a total of 1 hour and 10 minutes of use. The TRIPP-LITE UPS system supporting the Sensormedics 3100A gave its first warning alarm at 1 hour of use. Twelve minutes later, it gave its second warning alarm, and completely turned off after a total of 2 hours and 4 minutes of use. To evaluate the effective operational time of the TRIPP-LITE UPS system (SMART 1200 XLHG), we tested it on a Sensormedics 3100 A and 3100 B with a standard neonatal and pediatric workload. Both ventilators were calibrated and set-up according to manufacturer specifications. A 2.5 mm I.D. endotracheal tube connected to a Maquet neonatal test lung was attached to the Sensormedics 3100A and placed on settings of: Amplitude 30 cmH 2 0; Mean Airway Pressure of 12 cmH 2 0; 10 Hertz; FiO 2 of 0.60, I-time 33%, and Bias Flow of 20 LPM. A 5.5 mm I.D. endotracheal tube, connected to an adult Maquet test lung, was used with the Sensormedics 3100 B on settings of: Amplitude 40 cmH 2 0; Mean Airway Pressure of 16 cmH 2 0; 7 Hertz; 100% oxygen; I-time 33%; and Bias Flow of 30 LPM. Both ventilators were connected to two separate fully charged TRIPP- LITE UPS systems, and were then run continuously until the UPS system was completely exhausted. The TRIPP-LITE UPS system is able to provide effective short term back- up support for the Sensormedics 3100A and 3100B in the presence of a power failure. More studies need to be performed to better understand the relationship better power consumption and ventilator load. LOGO Our concern for patient safety drove us to find additional power back-up support for our High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilators (HFOV). Prior to our implementation of the TrippLite UPS system for our HFOVs, a power failure would cause interruption of ventilation until a clinician could restart the oscillator. However, our High Frequency Jet Ventilators were equipped with an UPS system that could provide immediate temporary support during a power failure or when our back-up generators were undergoing testing. It was also important that we found an UPS system that had a wider tolerance for the fluctuations in power levels we were experiencing. We worked closely with our biomedical engineers to find an UPS system that had this tolerance, yet be able to provide the power required to support the HFOVs and keep them operating normally. Patients on HFOV support can rapidly decompensate even for brief periods in which ventilatory support is not provided. This patient population is generally critically ill and have very little lung reserve placing them at greater risk for negative outcomes. Despite this risk, we have found that there are still many hospitals that do not use an UPS system for their HFOVs. However, there is a general trend in which more hospitals are using an UPS system to provide back-up support. This practice can improve the safety for our patients and may play an important role in disaster preparedness.

+ Final Remarks Conclusions from recent study on evidence based practice: The primary reason why more RCPs did not apply evidence based practice was because they lacked proper training in applying evidence based practice You have the power to change and impact your profession “We can transform our organizations by transforming ourselves.” R.
