Indications for Use
The AIRVO is for the treatment of spontaneously breathing patients who would benefit from receiving high-flow warmed and humidified respiratory gases, including patients who have upper airways bypassed. The oxygen flow may be from 2 - 60L/min depending on the patient interface and the facilities oxygen delivery source. A facility with piped-in oxygen can deliver up to 60L/min, while a facility using oxygen concentrators can deliver up to 10L/min.
The AIRVO can be used with a variety of patient interfaces. The Optiflow Nasal Interface covers the nostrils, leaving the mouth unobstructed. The Tracheostomy Interface connects directly to the tracheostomy tube and is secured using a lanyard around the neck. Finally, the Mask Interface Adapter allows users to connect the tubing to a 22mm port on a vented tracheostomy mask or standard oxygen mask. NJRA's respiratory therapist will help select the interface the best fits the individuals needs.
