Humification of oxygen prior to administration by nasal cannula is an expensive practice which has been justified on the basis that it improves the comfort of patients receiving supplemental oxygen therapy. Routine humidification of low-flow oxygen (less than or equal to 4 L/min) delivered by nasal cannula has recently been challenged based on theoretic grounds and on the results of a clinical study. Nevertheless, we found, in a telephone survey of medium-sized American hospitals, that routine… CONTINUE READING
