Oxiventilación con cánula nasal (HFNC)

"Introduction
Last summer I wrote a post about preoxygenation and apneic oxygenation using high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC). At that point there was no evidence supporting it, so the post was based primarily on the physiology of HFNC. Recently two papers were published supporting the use of HFNC for preoxygenation and apneic oxygenation (Patel 2015, Miguel-Montanes 2015). The surprising part is that Patel et al additionally found that high-flow nasal cannula provided apneic ventilation."
