Daverio et al (1) published in the journal their interesting results on two-tiered high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) oxygenation in infant bronchiolitis. The authors retrospectively reviewed electronic medical records of infants who were hospitalised for bronchiolitis at age <12 months in 2012-2017 and who required oxygen to keep saturation at 94%. The median age of 211 included infants was two months, and HFNC was given as first-line therapy for 35(16.6%) and as rescue for 73(42.5%).

BACKGROUND Pulmonary barotrauma is considered as complication of the use of positive-pressure ventilations. Nasal high-flow therapy is increasingly being used as an alternative to them. Nasal high-flo...
High-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) is increasingly used to treat children hospitalized with bronchiolitis; however, the best practices for feeding during HFNC and the impact of feeding on time to discharg...
The ROX (Respiratory rate-OXygenation) index is an early predictor of failure of nasal high flow (NHF), with lower values indicating higher risk of intubation. We measured the ROX index at set flow ra...
Morbidly obese patients undergoing general anesthesia are at risk of hypoxemia during anesthesia induction. High-flow nasal oxygenation use during anesthesia induction prolongs safe apnea time in nono...
Bronchiolitis in infants and young children often requires respiraty support. In Denmark Continous Positive Airway Pressure ( CPAP) are routinely used in children with moderate-severe bron...
Objective: The investigators aimed to compare the heated humidified high-ﬂow nasal cannula (HHHFNC) flow rate of 1-L/kg/min (1L) with 2-L/kg/min (2L) in patients with severe bronchioliti...
High flow nasal cannula (HFNC) has been shown to improve oxygenation and facilitate weaning in hypoxemia patients. Some clinical studies show the benefits of using HFNC in COPD patients, i...
In this multi-centre randomized controlled trial the investigators compare the effect on dyspnoea severity of oxgen delivery through High Flow Nasal cannula with Low Flow Nasal Prongs in c...
Over the last decade, high-flow nasal oxygen therapy (HFN) has emerged as a new method to provide respiratory support in children with moderate to severe bronchiolitis. However, any rando...
Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image. This type of ultrasonography is well-suited to identifying the location of high-velocity flow (such as in a stenosis) or of mapping the extent of flow in a certain region.
A non-invasive technique using ultrasound for the measurement of cerebrovascular hemodynamics, particularly cerebral blood flow velocity and cerebral collateral flow. With a high-intensity, low-frequency pulse probe, the intracranial arteries may be studied transtemporally, transorbitally, or from below the foramen magnum.
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
