Opportunities and Risks of Using Heliox in Your Clinical Practice
Featuring James Fink PhD, RRT, FAARC
Heliox has been shown to reduce work of breathing, improve aerosol delivery in addition to pulmonary function testing. In the face of limited marketed products for the delivery of heliox, especially in the ICU, the potential therapeutic benefits can be off set by the risks of “jury rigging” systems for delivery. This presentation will examine the benefits, the devices and the configurations that have been marketed and described, and discuss strategies to minimize risk to your patient and your institution.
