Beyond respiratory care
In the early 2000s, with an aspiration to improve care to more patients through humidification, we identified an area outside respiratory care which could benefit from our technology – surgery.
The internal surfaces of our body are warm and moist. Surgical interventions can disrupt this natural physiological balance. It has been demonstrated that delivering warm, humidified gas during laparoscopic and open surgery can reduce cellular desiccation4,5 and evaporative cooling.6,7 This has been shown to subsequently reduce the risk of postoperative complications and their associated costs.8
