Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is an effective treatment of severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) but poor compliance is a major limitation. High-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) has been used as an alternative but data about efficacy and objective long-term compliance are scarce; this study aims to address this lack of data.

This study compares high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) within the first hour of life as the primary respiratory support in neonates of ≤32 wee...
Nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) and high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) are modes of non-invasive respiratory support commonly used after extubation in extremely preterm infants. However,...
High flow nasal cannula therapy is a form of respiratory support which delivers high flow rates of heated, humidified gas to the nares via specialized cannula. Two primary mechanisms of action attribu...
To determine the feasibility, degree of respiratory support, and safety of high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) oxygen therapy in sedated and awake healthy dogs, when compared to traditional nasal cannula (...
It is unknown if set-flow, peak inspiratory flow (PIF), tidal volume, and set fraction of inspired O (FiO ) affect actual-FiO and positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) during high-flow nasal cannula...
To measure changes in physiologic parameters in extremely low birthweight (ELBW) infants on high-flow nasal cannula compared to nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP).
High flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy has been widely used in critically ill patients. Despite effectiveness of high flow nasal cannula as a treatment, optimal methods to withdrawal high ...
Randomized controled trial to compare oxygen desaturation during fiberoptic bronchoscopy using oxygen administered with nasal prongs and high flow nasal cannula. Drops in oxygen saturation...
The specific aims of this study are to evaluate the amount of high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) gas flow required to generate an equivalent positive distending pressure as that provided by na...
A single center, prospective study to assess the efficacy of high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) in improving obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) parameters in patients with reduced tolerance to cont...
Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.
The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.
Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.
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.
The continuous visual field seen by a subject through space and time.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
