In our tertiary head and neck center we increasingly use the Optiflow device to deliver high flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) in spontaneously ventilating patients1 or to provide trans-nasal rapid insufflation ventilatory exchange (THRIVE)2 in apnoeic, anaesthetised patients. Despite instituting regular departmental workshops, there were anecdotal reports of variable practice and incorrect usage of Optiflow. We aimed to assess anaesthetists’ knowledge and competence before and after bespoke training.
