Video Summary | Nasal high flow therapy in remote hospitals

Respiratory disease, usually acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure (AHRF), is the predominant reason for paediatric retrievals from remote areas in northern Australia. AHRF requires oxygen treatment using nasal high flow (NHF) therapy, but although the use of NHF therapy is ubiquitous in Australian tertiary hospitals, implementation is inconsistent in remote Australian hospitals and there is no clear guidance for its use in limited resource environments. This Original Research study developed a guideline for the use of NHF therapy in three remote hospitals in Queensland, Australia.
