Fast Disinfection and Workflow Streamlining

Start delivering heated, humidified therapy in minutes.

The single use disposable patient circuits can be used up to 30 days, then discarded.

The Precision Flow System can be disinfected in less than 10 minutes.

Nurse call and EMR integration, as well as a large, easily read LED display allow hospitals options in bedside monitoring.

More than High Flow Nasal Cannula

More than twenty years ago, Vapotherm invented high flow nasal cannula. Today, Vapotherm high velocity therapy is an advanced form of high flow nasal cannula, capable of providing ventilatory support clinically proven non-inferior to NiPPV – without the need for a tight-fitting respiratory mask.

One device can allow hospitals readiness for a broad range of patient acuity, from supporting the oxygenation and humidification needs of COVID-19 patients, to hypercapnic COPD patients1.

With Mask-Free NIV, we’re rethinking ventilation.

Best Practices for Vapotherm High Velocity Therapy for COVID-19 Patients

With the application of a simple surgical mask, particulate spread is similar to that of normal patient breathing. After applying the cannula to the patient, fit a surgical mask, then initiate therapy.

Learn how to keep providers and patients safe with these best practices.
