The HI-Flow Star system for enhanced patient safety and comfort
âThe newly designed swivel connector helps prevent unnecessary disconnections, ensuring more continuous therapy.
- Tension on the hose can make patients feel if they were tied down. Integrated clips, one for the nasal tubing and one for the hose provide effective breathing circuit tension relief. This helps keep patients more comfortable and facilitates mobilization and physical therapy. Water collecting inside the circuit is often an issue with heated and humidified air. The flexible, breathable hose minimizes internal condensation. The HI-Flow Star valve kit includes a pressure relief valve and a humidifier chamber connector. The preset pressure relief valve is used to prevent the system pressure becoming too high. The valve kit can be used for high-flow therapy in adults (optional).
Patient comfort is a central issue with any interface. To be effective, it must be worn continuously for hours at a time. The headgear is constructed of soft, lightweight materials that holds the interface firmly yet comfortably in place. It can be freely adjusted to provide an exact fit.
The nostril is a very sensitive area. The unique design and soft materials used in the nasal prongs help to reduce skin lesions and enhance patient comfort.
Thanks to its symmetrical design, the nasal cannula can be connected from either the left or the right side of the bed. This helps caregivers save time and effort. No need to move a bed or equipment to connect the nasal cannula to the patient.
The HI-Flow Star nasal patient interface is disposable, reducing the possibility of cross contamination.
Enhanced patient comfort
âHigh-flow therapy is more comfortable for patients than NIV. The soft nasal prongs of the HI-Flow Start system ensure a comfortable fit. Skin lesions and other undesirable effects associated with masks are reduced. Heating and humidification of the gas mix further improves both patient tolerance and therapeutic efficacy
Compatibility and simplicity
âThe HI-Flow Star system is compatible with a range of DrÃ¤ger ventilators, including the Savina and Evita family. A source of compressed air and oxygen as well as a gas mixer, such as the Oxymixer from DrÃ¤ger, is required for operation. Caregivers will appreciate the system's simplicity. Fast setup and easy application translate to workload reduction.
