Respiratory heaters are also known as nebulizer heaters which are invented to provide heated and warm bland aerosol therapy to the patients who required respiratory support via a nasal cannulae, tracheal tube or face mask.
Aerosol therapy has the advantage of delivering agents directly to the lung, the organ where micrometastases exist, resulting in increased drug concentration in the lung, decreased drug levels in the circulation, and decreased systemic toxicity [20].
For these patients, only two aerosol therapy systems are practical: nebulizers and metered-dose inhalers (MDI) with spacers, both through a facemask [7].
Ninety-two patients across the participating seven ICUs received aerosol therapy. Sixty-one nebulisers (Micro Mist (n=37, 61%); Aeroneb (n=24, 39%)) were sampled.
The 18 chapters describe the equipment and procedures for performing blood gas sampling, pulmonary function testing, cardiopulmonary monitoring, humidity and aerosol therapy, airway clearance and suctioning, and mechanical ventilation of the adult and neonate.
The company will use the proceeds to support the development of its new aerosol therapy for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
