Effects of HME on aerosol administration.


I read with interest the June 2004 issue of RESPIRATORY CARE, which had several articles on delivering medications during mechanical ventilation.1–6 One thing that I thought lacking was any information about the amount of medication that gets past a heat-and-moisture exchanger. Do any institutions give aerosol treatments through HMEs? Are you aware of any data about the efficacy of giving treatments through HMEs?
