“Are HFOT & NIV Complementary for Acute Respiratory Failure?”

Saxe Communications & Philips* present…“Are HFOT & NIV Complementary for Acute Respiratory Failure?”

With the widespread utilization of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) for the treatment of respiratory failure, as well as the increasing utilization of humidified high flow oxygen therapy (HFOT) for the treatment of various forms of respiratory compromise, clinicians now have a broader range of noninvasive tools aimed at managing acute respiratory failure. However, the precise indication of each one of these therapies is still a question of debate. This webinar is intended to provide a more detailed comparative understanding of the clinical application of NIV, HFOT and Conventional Oxygen Therapy (COT), to show differences and similarities in modes of action, and to analyze the scientific evidence on the clinical benefits when these technologies are compared.

Learning Objectives  |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Discuss the physiological effects of HFOT for its clinical application in ARF.
  2. Discuss the evidence for the use of HFOT in ARF.
  3. Describe the comparative effects and outcomes of HFOT, NIV and COT in ARF
