OBJECTIVES To examine a hygroscopic condenser after clinical use and to describe the interaction of a hygroscopic condenser and a closed circuit suction system used simultaneously. DESIGN Prospective evaluation of hygroscopic condensers used clinically, and laboratory investigation of a hygroscopic condenser used with a closed circuit suction system. SETTING Tertiary referral centers. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS The hygroscopic condenser used during mechanical ventilation was removed… CONTINUE READING
