What setup does anybody use for transporting patients on a high flow nasal cannula?

 

The Vapotherm Transfer unit looks like it is optimized for in-hospital transport rather than interfacility, and looks like it would be a challenge to load into, and properly secure within, an ambulance. The Airvo doesn't seem to have any kind of internal battery, but does have an internal compressor, so a separate medical air tank wouldn't be necessary, as with the Vapotherm.

 

Thanks

You have two choices when facing a problem...sit down and cry, or put on your big boy boxers and deal with it

We're using the AnaPod for peds/neo patients, it's rated for flows up to 25lpm. Uses gas, though, so flows that high will empty your tanks pretty quickly.
