AIM: Airways humidification during mechanical ventilation (MV) can be performed by means of heat and moisture exchangers (HME). Good performance of selected hygroscopic HME was shown in terms of tracheal temperature and humidity control and low tube obstruction rates. However, few data are available on their effects on tracheobronchial ciliated cells. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of 2 different HME on ciliated cell during MV. METHODS: Twenty consecutive patients undergoing elective surgery lasting <4 h were randomly assigned to be treated with Rusch (Group 1) or Mediflux (Group 2) hygroscopic HME...

Creola bodies (CrBs) have been shown to be present specifically in the sputum of adults with asthma, and are clinically useful in the estimation of airway hyper-responsiveness through correlation with the levels of eosinophil cationic protein in the sputum. Our aim was to investigate whether CrBs can be detected in the sputum of wheezing infants, and the clinical significance of CrBs in wheezing infants in the development of asthma. Twenty-three wheezing infant patients, mean age 5.3 months, were studied. The presence of CrBs in the sputum was determined by Papanicolau's stain...
