The respiratory system is a highly balanced mechanism reliant on humidity. There are significant clinical benefits for patients who use temperature and humidity in any assisted breathing device.
The F&P myAIRVO 2 is the in-home version of the AIRVO used in hospital. The device is designed to mimic the natural physiological balance in the airway by providing high flow humidification to the respiratory tract. This includes patient who have had the upper airway bypassed.
Three Benefits of Humidification
1. Assists the natural defence mechanisms in the airway
2. Promotes efficient gas exchange and ventilation
3. Increases comfort and tolerance to treatment
The myAIRVO 2 has the ability to deliver up to 37 degrees Celsius & 100% relative humidity simultaneously. This is the optimum environment needed for our body to effectively clear secretions from our lungs and at the same time, re-hydrate our airway.
The High Flow component helps reduce the strain of breathing and ensures maximum clearance ability when delivering the humidified air. This is particularly important for patients suffering from disorders such as respiratory failure, asthma, COPD, pneumonia or even for those using supplemental oxygen.
