Should we be using high flow therapy on the neonatal unit?
Nicola Holme, Cath Harrison
High flow therapy (HFT) has become an increasingly popular alternative to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) within neonatal units. However, there is little uniformity in its usage reflecting the lack of evidence. This article summarises a review of the literature presenting the evidence for this therapy and data collected through a network survey and a tertiary neonatal unit audit.
