Thank you for participating in this HFNC survey. In Singapore, HFNC use is varied and only in certain hospitals. Other hospitals are using it on a trial basis and are attempting to improve their capabilities and experience at using HFNC. Real-life experience may differ from research findings. It is interesting to note that different ICUs using HFNC have different thresholds to consider failure of HFNC use and have differing protocols in place that may be contrary to the failure conditions used in the various trials.
We are aiming to ascertain the understanding and thresholds of practitioners with regards to HFNC through this survey and this would help contribute to an eventual National HFNC guideline.
Thank you again for your participation!
Q4. What are your thresholds prior to initiation of HFNC?
Q5. What physiological parameters would make you consider HFNC has failed?
Q6. When do you deemed it appropriate to transit HFNC to nasal prongs?
Q7. What are your initial setting for HFNC when it is first applied?
