Built-in success
Drawing on technology used in
ResMed’s premium patient interfaces,
the AcuCare HFNC is built with the same
innovative dual-strap headgear to allow
fitting in seconds. The headgear’s stretch
fabric lets you move the straps apart
to loosen, and bring them together to
tighten. It's that simple.
Not only is the AcuCare HFNC fast to
fit, but it's also designed to stay in place
once fitted, thanks to its innovative
headgear-to-frame combination.
This allows you to quickly stabilise your
patient, so you can spend more time
on care where it's needed most.
When you select a ResMed interface,
you're choosing technology that
draws on over 25 years of experience
in noninvasive solutions. So you can be
confident in the quality of therapy
you're providing to your patients.
