Understanding the benefits of early high-flow nasal cannula therapy for adults with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure in the ED

      We have read with great interest the recent study published by Macé et al. [

      Early high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy in adults with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure in the ED: a before-after study.
      ], which described the impact of early high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy in adults presenting with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure in the ED; most notably observing faster recovery or regression of respiratory failure with HFNC.

      Abbreviations:

      ED (emergency department), HFNC (high-flow nasal cannula), NIV (non-invasive ventilation)
