ANAPOD™ Humi-Therm - 1

ANAPOD™ Humi-Therm Heated Humidification System ANAPOD™ Humi-Therm Heated Humidification System The Findings Favor the ANAPOD™ Humidification System A recent clinical study confirmed that core body temperature can decrease during general anesthesia. It is inevitable that more aggressive strategies will be required to prevent intraoperative hypothermia, particularly in elderly patients. In this study, 24 elderly patients were randomly divided into two groups: those who used a heated humidifier (ANAPOD) and those who used a conventional ventilator circuit with an HME (heat moisture exchanger). In those patients assigned an HME, temperature significantly decreased 90 minutes after skin incision; however, no significant temperature differences were noted during surgery in the patients using ANAPOD. As a result, the study concludes that “an active heated humidifier is more effective in preventing intraoperative (temperature) decrease in elderly patients than a passive heat moisture exchanger.” 1 In another study, the effectiveness of transtracheal heating and humidification (ANAPOD) in maintaining body temperature during general anesthesia with low flow gases, was compared to the use of a hot water circulating system. Results of this study indicated that ANAPOD was more effective in maintaining body temperature and humidification than after abdominal lavage with warm saline water. “We concluded that the transtracheal heating and humidification system (ANAPOD) is effective in maintaining body temperature under general anesthesia with low flow gases.” 2 References: Core Temperature Management Made Simple Hyungseok Seo*, Kyungmi Kim, Eun-a Oh*, Yeon-jin Moon, Young-Kug Kim, and Jai-Hyun Hwang, Effect of electrically heated humidifier on intraoperative core body temperature decrease in elderly patients: a prospective observational study, Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea, Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine 2016; 11: 211-216 Matsuo Kaneyuki, Honda Osamu, Hiraga Kazuaki, Yokokawa Yuko, A comparison of the effectiveness of transtracheal heating and humidification system in maintaining body temperature during general anesthesia with low flow gases, Department of Surgical Oncology, Department of Anesthesiology, National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo 104-0045, Japan, Masui ISSN 0021-4892 CODEN Masuac 2 When Your Care Is Critical Distributed by: When Your Care Is Critical Westmed, Inc. 5580 S.
