BT_PO 1.38 : Define humidity and outline the importance of humidification

Nunn won’t be so much help today, it’s more application of some basic physics.

Turbulent flow in the upper airway is better than laminar flow for humidification TRUE/FALSE

High minute volumes will move the isothermic saturation boundary distally TRUE/FALSE

With an unchanged absolute humidity, relative humidity will decrease as temperature increases  TRUE/FALSE

Gas in an oxygen cylinder has a relative humidity of 50%  TRUE/FALSE

Physiological humidification of inhaled gas requires more energy than warming it  TRUE/FALSE
