Carepod Humidifiers Receive FDA Approval

Carepod, an award-winning humidifier manufacturer, announces that their Carepod One – Stainless Steel Humidifier has received FDA clearance.

The US Food and Drug Administration is responsible for ensuring public safety by regulating and classifying medical devices available on the market. Finally, after several months, Carepod was notified of their approval as a class 1 anesthesiology device intended for non-direct home-usage. It is identified as a therapeutic humidifier that can provide benefits through processes such as general respiratory therapy by “adding water vapor to breathing gases” as stated by the FDA review.

The approval process is very thorough. The product underwent review in a three-step process in which:

Analysis was done on the target conditions for which the device is intended and then evaluation of available treatments was assessed.

Assessment of benefits and risks was done through the evaluation of clinical data submitted by the product maker.

Strategies for managing risks were detected in an effort to manage and limit any mishaps that could potentially occur.

Every single one of us deserves refreshingly balanced air that helps to protect our immune system so we can stay strong and radiant.”.
