Humidification of inspired gases is a vital process by which the body moistens and warms the gases that we breathe. Breathing gases which are not humidified can lead to damage of the cells lining the respiratory tract, impairing ciliary function and increasing the patient's susceptibility to respiratory tract infection. During this session the methods of delivering humidified gas to the patient will be discussed as will methods of using the respiratory tract to deliver medication.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Choose the optimal method for humidification for your patient
• Identify the principles involved in the working of the different types of humidifiers
• Recognize the importance of humidification and the complications that develop when it is inadequate
• List the advantages and disadvantages of the humidifiers in common use
• Describe the different ways of delivering drugs via the airway and the drugs that can be delivered
