Özet

Objective: High-flow nasal cannula oxygenation (HFNC) therapy is reported to provide a significant improvement in vital findings in pediatric patients who develop respiratory distress during follow- up of acute bronchiolitis. In our study, we aimed to evaluate the effects of HFNC therapy on vital findings in infants diagnosed with severe acute bronchiolitis and also, we compared the mean duration and the number of hospitalizations of these patients in the intensive care unit with the period where HFNC was not available in our center.
