BACKGROUND Heated, humidified, high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy (HHHFNC) has been used to improve ventilation in preterm infants. There are no data on airway pressures generated and efficacy in bronchiolitis. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine nasopharyngeal (NP) pressures generated with HHHFNC therapy in bronchiolitis. METHODS We conducted a prospective, observational study to measure NP pressures at varying flow rates of HHHFNC therapy in moderate to severe… CONTINUE READING
