When are the effects of Optiflow HF therapy seen?
Sztrymf associated Optiflow HF therapy with sustained beneficial effects on oxygenation and physiological
parameters for patients with acute respiratory failure. Similarly Rittayamai showed significant improvement
in post-extubation patients. These studies may provide guidance on patient responses to the therapy.
