Understand Optiflow™

With Optiflow Nasal High Flow, you can independently titrate flow and FiO2 according to your patient's needs. The mechanisms of action differ from those of conventional therapies, as do the resulting physiological effects and clinical outcomes.

In this "Understand" section, you can learn more about these mechanisms, effects and outcomes, as well as Optiflow's health economic benefits, technology and use in practice.

 

Improving Care and Outcomes

The Optiflow™ mechanisms of action are:

  • Respiratory support (through Reduction of dead space and delivery of a Dynamic positive airway pressure)
  • Airway hydration
  • Patient comfort
  • Supplemental oxygen (if required)

These mechanisms contribute to physiological effects such as reduced respiratory rate, improved oxygenation, reduced carbon dioxide levels and improved mucus clearance.

Clinical studies suggest that Optiflow may reduce escalation of care, reduce mortality rates and improve symptomatic relief.
