ALI Patients: Standard vs NIV or High Flow Nasal Oxygen Therapy?
FLORALI Study Results
Jean-Pierre Frat describes the rationale and findings from his long-awaited trial on ventilation of patients with acute lung injury in this icTV interview. The FLORALI study is a randomised multicentric study which compared three strategies of ventilation support: standard oxygen therapy, NHFO, and NHFO with NIV in patients admitted to the ICU for acute hypoxemic respiratory failure.
