Given the recent surge in cases of respiratory illness in children, MHA and the Department of Public Health hosted a webinar — High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) in Bronchiolitis: Managing Care Outside the ICU — on November 2, 2022.
The webinar is tailored to clinicians who are managing patients with bronchiolitis on HFNC outside the ICU – in both community hospitals and sites where there may be a pediatric ICU that is currently at capacity. Please feel free to invite other involved staff members.
- Summarized the physiologic mechanism for HFNC in bronchiolitis;
- Identified patients with bronchiolitis who may benefit from HFNC;
- Discussed a weight-based approach for initiation, escalation, and weaning of HFNC; and
- Assessed how a pathway for management of HFNC in bronchiolitis might be implemented in your health system
