ASPIRE Featured Measure: PUL 02
ASPIRE (Anesthesiology Performance Improvement and Reporting Exchange) is a national anesthesia quality improvement collaborative that includes 21 sites across Michigan. Michigan-based sites are a core component of ASPIRE and make up almost 1/2 of all participating sites.
A total of 26 measures make up the ASPIRE database. This is the first in a series of articles that share quality improvement initiatives from ASPIRE. With this article we will highlight “PUL 02”, our low tidal volume measure. Specifically, tidal volume goals are ≤ 8cc/kg ideal body weight, and data is pulled from electronic health data to grade compliance throughout the initiative.
