The AIRVO 2 at a glance

The AIRVO 2 is a Humidified High Flow System
designed to treat your patients across the care continuum

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

  • A system with a built-in flow generator means it’s portable - no need for a noisy, heavy compressor or to be tethered to wall air.

  • 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.
