The Optiflow HF therapy mechanisms of action are:
- Respiratory support (through the 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 HF therapy may decrease the escalation of care, reduce mortality rates, and improve symptomatic relief
