POL-VENT database of patients with respiratory failure

In cooperation with the Pulmonology Center in Bydgoszcz (Kujawsko-Pomorskim Centrum Pulmonologii), HTA Consulting is creating a database of patients with respiratory failure – POL-VENT, which participate in the “National program for reducing mortality due to chronic lung diseases by creating rooms for non-invasive mechanical ventilation for 2016-2019”.

The program is implemented in 23 centers throughout Poland and and new ones are still joining. Systematic collection of data on the treatment in the non-invasive mechanical ventilation room and pulmonary rehabilitation of patients with respiratory failure will contribute to the implementation of treatment standards through non-invasive mechanical ventilation and optimization of their care standards. It will also enable observation of the effectiveness and safety of this method and assessment of its long-term effects.
