Use of high flow nasal cannula oxygen (HFNC) is increasingly popular in adult ICUs for patients with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure. This is the result of the successful long-term use of HFNC in the neonatal field and recent clinical data in adults indicating beneficial effects of HFNC over conventional facemask oxygen therapy. HFNC rapidly alleviates symptoms of respiratory distress and improves oxygenation by several mechanisms, including deadspace washout, reduction in oxygen dilution… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Efficacy of High-Flow Oxygen by Nasal Cannula With Active Humidification in a Patient With Acute Respiratory Failure of Neuromuscular Origin
TLDR
A patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis who arrived at the emergency department with acute hypercapnic respiratory failure did not tolerate NIV and refused intubation, but was treated successfully with heated, humidified oxygen via high-flow nasal cannula.
High‐flow nasal oxygen therapy in intensive care and anaesthesia
Current application of high flow oxygen nasal cannula in acute hypoxemic respiratory failure in the emergency department
TLDR
Indications, effects and existing evidence on HFONC, COT and NIMV in the setting of acute hypoxemic respiratory failure in the critically ill patient are reviewed.
The use of high-flow nasal oxygen therapy in the management of hypercarbic respiratory failure
TLDR
A case in which a HFNO system was used to successfully manage hypercarbic respiratory failure in a patient unable to tolerate conventional NIV is presented.
Efficacy of High-Flow Nasal Cannula Therapy in Acute Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure: Decreased Use of Mechanical Ventilation
TLDR
HFNC might be an alternative for AHRF subjects with NIV intolerance and significantly fewer subjects required mechanical ventilation (NIV or invasive ventilation) in the post-HFNC period.
THE PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS AND CLINICAL USES OF HIGH FLOW NASAL CANNULA OXYGEN THERAPY: A REVIEW
TLDR
The main point of this review is to guide clinicians towards evidence based clinical practice guideline by reviewing present existing literature of HFNC oxygen therapy in adult patients and reported its physiological effects and current evidence in clinical uses.
Use of High-Flow Nasal Cannula for Acute Dyspnea and Hypoxemia in the Emergency Department
TLDR
High-flow nasal oxygen cannula improved dyspnea and comfort in subjects presenting with acute dysPnea and hypoxemia in the emergency department, and may benefit patients requiring oxygen therapy in theEmergency room.
Nasal high–flow oxygen therapy in patients with hypoxic respiratory failure: effect on functional and subjective respiratory parameters compared to conventional oxygen therapy and non-invasive ventilation (NIV)
TLDR
In hypoxic respiratory failure HFNC offers a good balance between oxygenation and comfort compared to NIV and Venturi mask and seems to be well tolerated by patients.
High-flow nasal cannula oxygen versus non-invasive ventilation in patients with acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure undergoing flexible bronchoscopy - a prospective randomised trial
TLDR
The application of NIV was superior to HFNC with regard to oxygenation before, during and after bronchoscopy in patients with moderate to severe hypoxaemia, and in Patients with stable oxygenation under HFNC, subsequent bron choscopy was well tolerated.

Humidified High Flow Nasal Oxygen During Respiratory Failure in the Emergency Department: Feasibility and Efficacy
TLDR
HFNC is possible in the ED, and it alleviated dyspnea and improved respiratory parameters in subjects with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure, as compared to conventional oxygen therapy.
High-flow oxygen therapy in acute respiratory failure.
TLDR
HFNC was better tolerated and more comfortable than face mask and was associated with better oxygenation and lower respiratory rate, which could have an important role in the treatment of patients with acute respiratory failure.
Beneficial effects of humidified high flow nasal oxygen in critical care patients: a prospective pilot study
TLDR
HFNC has a beneficial effect on clinical signs and oxygenation in ICU patients with acute respiratory failure, and favorable results constitute a prerequisite to launching a randomized controlled study to investigate whether HFNC reduces intubation in these patients.

High flow nasal cannula therapy as respiratory support in the preterm infant
TLDR
The routinary application of HFNC should be limited to patients requiring oxygen‐therapy, HHHFNC devices should be preferred to HFNC, but their employment as an alternative to NCPAP should wait for the conclusion of randomized controlled trials.
Prognostic impact of high-flow nasal cannula oxygen supply in an ICU patient with pulmonary fibrosis complicated by acute respiratory failure
TLDR
The exceptional case of an elderly patient who improved only 1 month after ICU admission, and non-invasive means of providing oxygen can be proposed until patients with potentially reversible causes of ARF are identified is reported.
A Preliminary Randomized Controlled Trial to Assess Effectiveness of Nasal High-Flow Oxygen in Intensive Care Patients
TLDR
NHF oxygen therapy may be more effective than HFFM in treating mild to moderate hypoxemic respiratory failure and has significantly fewer desaturations.
