The Comfort That Helps with Compliance

Provide acute relief of respiratory distress, including tachypnea and attendant tachycardia, by decreasing work of breathing and cardiac workload with a comfortable nasal cannula interface. Kids can eat, drink, talk, receive aerosolized medication, and take oral medications without interrupting therapy.

Redefining the Continuum of Care

Whether you’re treating respiratory distress symptoms resulting from critical bronchiolitis, asthma, pneumonia, or other diseases, Vapotherm high velocity therapy is a frontline tool to help your patients. It is an advanced form of high flow nasal cannula that is a viable alternative to masked-base pressure therapies. This one respiratory tool can provide respiratory support for patients in a wide array of respiratory distress acuity – including hypercapnia, hypoxemia, or dyspnea.

Increased Acuity Levels of Respiratory Distress


Disclaimer: High Velocity Therapy is not intended to provide the total ventilatory requirements of the patient.  For spontaneously breathing patients only. 

Keep Kids Off the Vent

Vapotherm high velocity therapy is an alternative to NiPPV and CPAP for treating undifferentiated respiratory distress, but also offers an open system, comfortable interface, and optimal humidification of breathing gases, often associated with high flow nasal cannula. As such, using high velocity therapy as primary respiratory support could significantly reduce intubation rates. [1] [2]


Choose the Right Care Area for Your Patient Needs

The Vapotherm Precision Flow® system could give you disposition options. Efficacious enough for PICU needs, its integrated alarms and digital settings control also offer safe and effective delivery of therapy on the floor.
The optional Vapotherm Transfer Unit furthers utility by allowing therapy to continue during play time, ambulation or transport.
