HUMIDOTRACH® HME Filter O2
HUMIDOTRACH® HME Filter
This Heat and Moisture Exchanger for tracheostomised patients has a foam filter, which is integrated into a sturdy plastic housing. The plastic housing is designed in a grid shape, to enable the greatest amount of air to enter. HumidoTrach® is equipped with a central, standardized opening, which enables the attachment onto the 15-mm connector of the tracheostomy tube. The HME filters, warms and humidifies the inspired air.
In addition, the lid of the housing contains an overpressure valve. This enables the coughing out of secretions, even without removing the HME.
A port on the side of the HumidoTrach® HME housing enables the connection to an oxygen supply.
A special oxygen connection tube, for the connection of an oxygen device, is available as a special accessory. This connection tube has a special inner profile, to prevent kinking of the tube during oxygen supply.
