WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS FREE WEBINAR:

Overview:

An increasing number of institutions are using heated high flow nasal cannula as a primary form of noninvasive respiratory support for infants. This presentation will explore the available data to improve our understanding of how HFNC works and how it can safely and effectively be used to reduce WOB improve gas exchange and reduce the need for invasive mechanical ventilation.

Learning Objectives:

  • 1

    Describe at least two theoretic and/or physiologic differences between the function of Nasal CPAP and high flow nasal cannula (HFNC)

  • 2

    Discuss the type and quality of clinical data that currently exists for using HFNC in neonates

  • 3

    List two or more best practices for HFNC management and weaning
