Simplify life with an easy-to-use high-flow therapy device

Lumis HFT can deliver a full night** of heated, humidified air – with or without oxygen – and features adjustable flow, temperature and humidification settings.

The user interface has been designed to be intuitive and simple to navigate. The HumidAirTM heated humidifier and ClimateLineAirTM heated tube are easy to detach and clean and can be reused.

Small, light and quiet***, Lumis HFT is designed to deliver comfortable therapy in the home and blend into the background of the patient’s life.

Set up, titrate and monitor patients easily

With just three settings and a straightforward interface, it’s quick and easy to set up and titrate new patients. You can also add and humidify oxygen for COPD patients who are receiving long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) and have chronic cough with mucous production.

Lumis HFT uses standard ResMed Air10 spares and accessories such as filters, humidifiers and tubing. This can help to simplify training, maintenance and logistics.

Maintain visibility at all times

Identifying and troubleshooting problems rapidly could help to improve adherence and reduce drop-outs. But it can be difficult to keep a close eye on all of your patients. That’s why, with AirView for HFT, you can monitor:

  •  Your patient’s therapy duration and usage patterns
  • SpO2 values****, which may prove helpful during titration or follow-up of HFT patients requiring supplemental oxygen.

When you identify an issue or a data point of interest, you can easily generate a pre-configured report to share with colleagues and caregivers.

AcuCare HFNC

Pair Lumis HFT with ResMed’s durable AcuCare high-flow nasal cannula. It’s designed to be easy to fit and can deliver up to 30 days of home-based high-flow therapy.
