EV-D68: How Can High Flow Therapy Help?

Recently there has been a rise in pediatric ED visits and ICU admissions due to the Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). Bronchiolitis caused by EV-D68 leads to coughing, wheezing and heavy mucus secretions, which may lead to mild or severe respiratory illness. Vapotherm High Flow Therapy Precision Flow system is used in hundreds of hospitals and provides respiratory support for bronchiolitis patients.

Vapotherm High Flow Therapy:

  • Hydrates the mucosa to avoid mucus plugs, which may worsen the respiratory condition.
  • Provides warm, humidified gas, which protects the respiratory tissue and helps with inflammation and swelling of the airways.
  • Reduces Work of Breathing by flushing the expiratory carbon dioxide.
