High Flow Nasal Cannula

REBEL Crit Cast Episode 2.0 - February 10, 2020 -By Frank Lodeserto
"The use of heated and humidified high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) has become increasingly popular in the treatment of patients with acute respiratory failure through all age groups. Over the past several years, many studies have come out reviewing the mechanisms of action as well as its use in a variety of conditions. In this episode, I will summarize how it works and for part 2, I will discuss the main indications for its use in both adult and pediatric patients and practical tips on how to use it...
Clinical Bottom Line:
In summary, these different mechanisms described above may all benefit patients in different ways. We are not sure which mechanism is the most important or if they are all helpful. Perhaps, depending on your patient’s condition, one of the mechanisms may be predominate at certain times. One mechanism may be more important in certain disease processes. We will discuss the adult & pediatric indications as well as some practical tips for it’s use in our next podcast!"
