The EAMS Webinar entitled “HFNO and COVID-19 - where are we in spring 2021?” was held on the 6 of May 2021.
This webinar covered high flow nasal oxygen delivery during COVID-19 and the physics behind droplet and aerosol formation.
Prof. Patel discussed HFNO in the covid era and presented the evidence now available to understand the safety of its use. He debated about the degree to which HFNO is aerosol generating and the associated risk of pathogen transmission.
Prof. Barnes explained the physics of aerosols and droplets: how they behave, are formed and spread from our organism to the environment. Finally, he provided a physicist conclusion about droplets and aerosols and COVID 19.
Corresponding literature is also available for EAMS members on the web page.
See you at our next webinar!
