Reduce Nasal Trauma with Vapotherm

CPAP interfaces have been shown to cause significantly higher incidence rate of nasal trauma than Vapotherm. Trauma to nasal mucosa in neonates may be associated with septicemia in this population.

Similar Safety to CPAP

The 2016 Cochrane Review concludes HFNC is similar in clinical efficacy and safety to all other forms of NIV with significantly less nasal trauma and potentially less pneumothorax.11.

Vapotherm can be a tool for early extubation that, in conjunction with other clinical care practices, may reduce BPD.22. M. Robbins, J. Trittmann, E. Martin, K.M. Reber, L. Nelin*, E. Shepherd. Early extubation attempts reduce length of stay in extremely preterm infants even if re-intubation is necessary. JNPM 2015; Volume 8, Number 2.Read Full Text
