Adult Hypercapnia Roundtable Discussion

High Velocity Therapy was an important part of Emergency Medicine and Critical Care Physicians and Clinicians respiratory support armamentarium during the COVID pandemic.  This resulted not only in a great increase in the awareness and use of the therapy for acute hypoxemic respiratory distress, but also for other patient types experiencing hypoxemic and/or hypercapnic respiratory distress.
