STUDY OBJECTIVE To compare the thermal and humidification capacity of three heated hot water systems (HHWSs) and two heat and moisture exchangers (HMEs) in ICU patients submitted to minute ventilation > 10 L/min. DESIGN Prospective, controlled, randomized, not blinded study. SETTING ICU of a university hospital. PATIENTS ICU patients requiring controlled mechanical ventilation with minute ventilation > 10 L/min. Patients had to be sedated and paralyzed and had to require ventilation for… CONTINUE READING
