Airvo 2, a humidified Nasal High Flow system
designed to treat your patients across the
care continuum.


A system with a built-in flow generator means there’s no need for a noisy, heavy air compressor in order to use the Airvo 2 for transport. Add a UPS and you’re ready to go.

Broad flow range

A broad flow range (2 to 60 L/min) takes your patients from the most acute environments (ICU and ED) to the home.

Variety of interfaces

A variety of interfaces specifically designed with Optiflow High Flow therapy in mind.

At higher flows comfort is paramount - you need an interface designed for the job.
