Hello, we have used it also for years. It is on our headwall. We do not have a set guideline but do change after a few days in use. We apply, usually when the patient starts having some decreased sats at night while asleep. Usually infants are the main ones using.

Does anyone use cool mist for your SCT patients to help with the positive pressure room and dryness when they have mucositis? If so how often do you change the setup? Does it go on your head wall or on an IV pole? We have been using for several years and it seems to help.
