Hi we don’t use cool mist however we have started looking into humidified high flow set up. Its been used in adults and like the cool mist it seems to help. Id be interested to know more about the cool mist as I am uncertain how compliant the children will be with nasal prongs or mask for the mucositis. The humidified high flow unit needs to be changed weekly.

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.
