Humidification Performance of Heat and Moisture Exchangers for Pediatric Use

Figure 2

Effect of respiratory rate on absolute humidity in the absence of leakage. This figure shows the pooled results for pressure control settings of 10, 15, and 20 cmH2O without leakage. With three HMEs, increasing the respiratory rate statistically significantly increased absolute humidity. Mean ± SD; * versus respiratory rate 20 breaths/min. HME: heat and moisture exchanger. RR: respiratory rate (breaths/min).
