Striking a Balance: Finding the Optimal Settings During HFNC Therapy
Jie Li, PhD, RRT, RRT-ACCS, FAARC
- Explore the diverse physiological effects of different flow settings during high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) treatment, elucidating the association between flows and parameters such as oxygenation, carbon dioxide washout, and positive end-expiratory pressure.
- Analyze the existing evidence by reviewing both in vitro and in vivo studies, aiming to discern the optimal range of flow settings that maximize therapeutic benefits while mitigating potential drawbacks, such as alveolar overdistention and patient discomfort.
- Propose a patient-centered approach to individualizing flow settings within HFNC therapy, incorporating clinical indicators such as oxygenation, respiratory rates, the ROX index, and patient comfort, ultimately offering practical insights to guide clinicians in navigating the complexity of flow titration.
