Promoting multi-dimensional and functional potential
In the patients transition period until returning home from an ICU, REMEO® staff help the patient, family and caregivers to understand the patient’s clinical condition and adapt accordingly. Staff also focus on promoting the patients multi-dimensional and functional rehabilitation potential.
Weaning from mechanical ventilation
The aim of REMEO® services is to minimise a patient’s dependency level, particularly on ventilator support. This could be achieved, for example, by decreasing the level of ventilator support required by the patient during evening hours. Alternatively, it could also be feasible to fully free the patient from the ventilator. Once the patient has been weaned from artificial airway dependency, he or she can be decannulated. REMEO® mid-term/transition care services have a high success rate in weaning patients from mechanical ventilation.
Early supported discharge
Early on in the care path, REMEO® case managers start arranging the necessary resources and equipment to allow patients to return home to a safely controlled environment.
At REMEO®, we recognise the importance of the role that family and caregivers play in the success of a patients early discharge to return home. Family and caregiver involvement contributes to an increased sense of safety outside of a clinical environment.
Should the condition of a home-based patient require additional medical attention, re-admission to hospital can be avoided by referring the patient back to REMEO®.
