Invasive respiratory support uses a ventilator to enable or support lung function and subsequent gas exchange.1
In the home, invasive long-term mechanical ventilation generally refers to patients who receive positive pressure ventilation via a tracheostomy tube.1 Some of the most common indications for a tracheostomy include the requirement for prolonged mechanical ventilation to overcome upper airway obstructions and facilitate secretion management.2
The upper airway provides 75% of the heat and moisture supplied to inspired gas.3 Invasive ventilation bypasses the natural filtration mechanisms, humidification and warming of inspired air.3 Therefore, heating and humidifying inspired gas during invasive ventilation is well-established as the standard of care4 and mandated by AARC guidelines.5
The respiratory system is a highly balanced
mechanism reliant on humidity.
