Heated Humidified High flow therapy (HHHFT)
for children and young people

A Pan London and South East England approach

Over the past few years the use of HHHFT has increased to support children with respiratory distress and those requiring oxygen therapy, particularly infants with bronchiolitis.

This guidance has been developed jointly, in consultation with colleagues from North and South Thames Paediatric Networks and retrieval services. The process collated available guidance documents from the Network regions, alongside the latest evidence base to produce and implement a guideline that will standardise practice across the Networks.

Please note that this guidance is to be used in all paediatric areas in conjunction with any condition specific guidance and local escalation policy that may be in place e.g. management of bronchiolitis, management of severe asthma.
