Heliox

The Precision Flow Heliox is a completely integrated system calibrated specifically for heliox 80/20, and designed for rapid application in emergency and intensive care settings. Heliox is a blend of helium and oxygen gas having a significantly lower density than typical air/oxygen mixtures. The lower density reduces the work of breathing by reducing the force needed to move gas through the airways. Heliox is commonly used on patients with restrictive airway disorders to improve breathing mechanics and gas exchange.

Until now, clinicians have generally provided heliox therapy through mechanical ventilation systems and face masks. Precision Flow Heliox provides a new, non-invasive option for delivering this specialty gas via nasal cannula, while providing optimal heat and humidification. This improves patient comfort and compliance.
