Abstract

Described is a humidification system for gases used in medical procedures as shown in Figure 1. The gas source 8, such as an insufflator, directs gas through a filter 6 into the humidifier 5. The gas is humidified as it passes through the humidifying chamber 9, then flows in to a flexible conduit 3 and to the patient 1. The humidifying chamber 9 holds a volume of water that is heated by a heater plate 16, which is under the control of a controller 17. A heater wire 10 is provided for the length of the conduit in order to prevent the water in the humidified gas from condensing. A temperature and flow sensor 11 is connected to the controller 17, in order to maintain control of the gas conditions being provided to the patient.
