 In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of proper fit and provide step-by-step instructions on how to properly fit the nasal interface and humidifier for your child.

Why Proper Fit is Important:

A proper fit of the Fisher & Paykel Optiflow Junior 2 Nasal Interface and Humidifier is important for several reasons. First, a proper fit ensures that the nasal interface is delivering the intended flow of air to your child’s lungs, optimizing respiratory support. Second, a proper fit reduces the risk of air leakage or pressure sores, which can cause discomfort and interfere with the effectiveness of the device.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Fitting the Fisher & Paykel Optiflow Junior 2 Nasal Interface and Humidifier:

  1. Gather the necessary equipment: Before fitting the nasal interface, make sure you have the following equipment on hand: the nasal interface, headgear, tubing, and the Optiflow Junior 2 Humidifier.

  2. Prepare the nasal interface: Attach the tubing to the nasal interface and connect the tubing to the humidifier. Make sure the tubing is properly secured to both the nasal interface and the humidifier.

  3. Adjust the headgear: Place the headgear on your child’s head and adjust the straps so that the nasal interface sits comfortably on the face. Make sure the straps are not too tight or too loose.

  4. Position the nasal interface: Position the nasal interface on your child’s face so that the prongs fit comfortably in the nostrils. Make sure the nasal interface is not touching the skin around the nose.

  5. Turn on the humidifier: Finally, turn on the Optiflow Junior 2 Humidifier and adjust the settings as needed. Make sure the humidifier is providing the proper amount of moisture to the air being delivered to your child’s lungs.

Conclusion:

Proper fit of the Fisher & Paykel Optiflow Junior 2 Nasal Interface and Humidifier is essential for optimal respiratory support for your child. By following these step-by-step instructions, you can ensure that the nasal interface and humidifier are fitted properly and providing the necessary respiratory support for your child.
