Higher proportion of patients had > 20% reduction in respiratory rate using NHF: 66.7% NHF vs. 38.5% conventional oxygen therapy (COT), p=0.005.
Showed in an ED randomized control trial that NHF was associated with a lower proportion of patients requiring escalation in ventilation therapy.
Nasal high flow can decrease the need for escalation and might decrease the need for intubation
“Patients with HFNC were much more likely to recover from respiratory failure.”
In this edition, we focus on the newly validated ROX index, a bedside tool designed to predict failure in adults, with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure, being treated with Nasal High Flow.
