What is Optiflow Nasal High Flow therapy/what are my (equipment) options for delivering Optiflow therapy?

Optiflow Nasal High Flow therapy is Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s offering for nasal high flow (NHF) therapy, also known as high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) or highflow oxygen therapy (HFOT). Optiflow systems include F&P Airvo Optiflow systems and vent-driven Optiflow systems.

Optiflow NHF therapy added can be delivered anywhere in the hospital 
  • Airvo-Optiflow system
    • Optiflow therapy can be delivered by the Airvo 2 device, which includes an integrated flow generator and humidifier. This is called an Airvo-Optiflow system.
  • Vent-driven Optiflow systems
    • Optiflow NHF therapy can also be delivered using an invasive or noninvasive ventilator equipped with an NHF/ HFNC mode when combined with an F&P humidifier (850), an F&P humidity delivery system (heated breathing tube and chamber kit) and an F&P Optiflow interface. This is called a vent-driven Optiflow system.
