MV-Optimizer integrates complex mathematical models that can be trained and auto-adjusted dynamically according to the patient’s clinical data. This gives doctors the opportunity to try various configurations of the ventilator, to simulate the patient’s response to these configurations and thus help the doctors to make decisions. This is a procedure that can be used to improve care for ventilated patients and a 30% reduction in the duration of hospital admissions, which will lead to a considerable reduction in health costs and the occupation of intensive care units.
The project was one of three CREB projects that won an award in the CaixaResearch Validate 2021 call of La Caixa Foundation, in collaboration with Caixa Capital Risc and the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT Health), for new biomedical projects with a social impact, with the aim of promoting innovation and transfer of knowledge and technologies in the area of biomedicine and health.
