Humidity is critical to human respiratory health. Our airways naturally condition inspired air to a level of temperature and humidity that enables physiologic equilibrium in the airway. When this natural balance is disrupted, the performance of the lung is inhibited. Maintaining this physiologic harmony is vital to a patient's outcome.
This student learning module provides an overview of humidity, optimal humidity levels and the mucociliary transport system, methods of delivering humidity and moisture to the airways, identifies patient groups at greater risk from lack of humidification, and reviews the AARC Clinical Practice Guidelines on humidification during mechanical ventilation.
This learning module will take you approximately 1.5 hours to complete.
Successful completion of this learning module requires a passing score of 70% (10/15) on the post-test.
This course does NOT qualify for CRCE. If you need CRCE for your license or credential, please search for content in other channels on AARC U.
