Clinical Bulletin on Heated Humidified High Flow Nasal Cannulas

As a result of the rise in respiratory infections, especially with pediatric patients, there have been many questions regarding the use of Heated Humidified High-Flow Nasal Cannulas by EMS.  The MDPB and the Maine EMS-C program have collaborated on a clinical bulletin containing some information and recommendations regarding various respiratory infections and the appropriateness of transport of patients requiring this therapy by EMS in Maine. Maine EMS encourages EMS clinicians to share and discuss. Please direct any questions about the information in this bulletin to MDPB or Maine EMS.
