Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
The VOCSN High Flow therapy delivers a continuous, set flow of gas (usually air and oxygen from a high-pressure source) to the patient through a large bore nasal cannula or other interface. It is designed for spontaneously breathing patients and is not intended for life support. The flow rate can be set anywhere from 15 to 60 L/min for adults, or 4 to 25 L/min for pediatric patients and FiO2 may be set anywhere from 21% to 100%.
