Airvo™ 2 Paed

Product Description

Improved breathing patterns and rapid unloading of the respiratory muscles
Significant reduction in the work of breathing
Rapid improvement to respiratory distress
Reduced need for escalation of therapy in infants with bronchiolitis.

Reduces anatomical dead space
Wash-out of the anatomical dead space in the nasopharyngeal cavity is a principal mechanism of action of NHF.[3]

Dynamic positive airway pressure
The delivery of dynamic positive airway pressure associated with NHF has been shown to reduce inspiratory effort and work of breathing compared to standard oxygen therapy.[4-6]

Improves patient comfort
NHF is gentle on the nose, which improves patient comfort, compliance, and tolerance to therapy.[7,8]
