High flow nasal oxygen therapy utilization: a 7-year experience at a community teaching hospital.
A study has been recently published showing the experience in high-flow utilization in a community teaching hospital, during a period of 7 years. High-flow utilization increased steadily over a 7-year period in their hospital. Frequently, high-flow therapy was used in combination with other ventilatory modes to support patient´s respiration. In the opinion of the authors, and similar to other technologies in health care, the uptake of high-flow has preceded the evidence from robust clinical trials.
