    BACKGROUND: During sedation for upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, oxygen delivery via a nasal cannula is often necessary. However, the influences of the oxygen delivery route and breathing pattern on the FIO have not been thoroughly investigated. The aim of this simulation study was to...

    The authors reflect on the study conducted by R. L. Parke and colleagues on the use of high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) oxygen among intensive care patients with hypoxemic respiratory failure. They note that the study successfully evaluated an oxygen-delivery device, the high-flow face mask...

    During bronchoscopy hypoxemia is commonly found and oxygen supply can be delivered by interfaces fed with high gas flows. Recently, the high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) has been introduced for oxygen therapy in adults, but they have not been used so far during bronchoscopy in adults. Forty-five...

    Introduction: In immunocompromised patients, acute respiratory failure (ARF) is associated with high mortality, particularly when invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) is required. In patients with severe hypoxemia, high-flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) therapy has been used as an...

    We used a high-flow nasal cannula with a patient who required a high fraction of inspired oxygen but could not tolerate a nasal or facial mask. We saw a 92-year-old woman with delirium and dementia in the intensive care unit for multi-lobar pneumonia with severe hypoxemia. Attempts to oxygenate...

    BACKGROUND: The mechanism of high-flow oxygen therapy and the pressures reached in the airway have not been defined. We hypothesized that the flow would generate a low continuous positive pressure, and that elevated flow rates in this model could produce moderate pressures. The objective of this...

  • oxygen therapy. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p579 

    An encyclopedia entry for "oxygen therapy" is presented. It refers to the process of supplying a person with oxygen-enriched air to relieve hypoxia. The oxygen is delivered through a face-mask or a nasal cannula. The air's oxygen concentration may be varied depending on the patient's needs....

    The nasal cannula has been a commonly used patient interface to provide supplemental oxygen since its introduction in the 1940s. Traditionally, it has been categorized as a low-flow device and capable of delivering a 0.4 FIO2 with flows up to 6 L/min to adults with normal minute ventilation....

    The article presents a comparison between conventional oxygen therapy (COT) and high-flow nasal oxygen cannula (HFNC) therapy for the management of acute respiratory failure (ARF). It is stated that COT has several drawbacks, including limited supply of oxygen with a maximum flow of 15 L/ min;...
