A new feature available in our ventilators
In conventional oxygen therapy, the flow used is generally low, due to the fact that high flow rates without an appropriate humidity level may cause discomfort. Within this context, FiO2 received by the patient may also vary, depending greatly on the patient’s inspiratory flow rate. In this scenario, high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) allow oxygen administration of up to 80 L/min with a high humidity level; solving the issues raised in the past. Advance, Neo and Ts* ventilators now have this feature, which allows an optimal transition between Invasive Ventilation, Non-Invasive Ventilation and High-Flow Oxygen Therapy.
