For those of you that use Nasal CPAP on transport, do you use humidification? If so, can you please provide some product info.

As well, what type of CPAP system do you use?

I no longer do transport (quit in July) but the team I worked for used a simple HME for both nasal CPAP and kids requiring the vent. We used the MVP-10 or a rigged up "bubble CPAP" system. Mauna Loa used to make a transport heat and humidification system specifically for transport that worked really well. Unfortunately they are no longer in business and I have yet to find another system specifically for transport.

We would use a neo HumidVent but frequently use nothing, as the Hudson prongs, cap and Biomed circuit are bulky enough to make a difficult interface without adding the ~20mm length of a HME.

We don't humidify. The trips are generally less than an hour.

The Mona Loa humidifier has been taken over by Children's Medical Ventures and renamed the Neo-Pod T. This product has just been released for sale in the the past month.

Our service has Fisher-Paykel humidifiers (as you would find in a NICU) that are wired into the transport system. They are powered when plugged into main power (hospital) and in the vehicle, but do not draw from the battery when no power supply is connected.

How does the Neopod T suit you? Any durability issues?
