OBJECTIVE: Reporting our institutional experience with high-flow nasal oxygen therapy (HFNOT), a recently-introduced technique, for endoscopic airway approaches. METHODS: Prospective collection of data of children (<16 years) undergoing endoscopic between January 2016 and August 2017 at a tertiary referral university hospital. RESULTS: HFNOT was used in 6 children who underwent 14 procedures for different forms and causes of upper airway obstruction of various origins. No intraoperative complications; related to oxygenation were observed, and the surgical procedures could be carried out as; initially planned. CONCLUSIONS: We found that HFNOT is an effective and safe technique with a variety of potential applications in the field of endoscopic pediatric airway surgery.
