Humidifiers, Artificial Airway, Heat/Moisture Exchange

Definition : Artificial airways humidifiers designed to collect the heat and moisture from the expired breathing air and return them during the following inspiration. These humidifiers are usually simple devices consisting of a layered aluminum insert that may include a paper or plastic component treated with a hygroscopic chemical to retain humidity; most of the humidifiers also include an air filter. They are used for spontaneously breathing patients and also for patients who are in full ventilator support, such as patients staying in post-operative or in intensive care units.
