HUMIDOTWIN® HME Filter, Package of 30
HUMIDOTWIN® HME Filter
The HumidoTwin® is an HME (Heat and Moisture Exchanger) with filter function, for spontaneously breathing patients. It filters, warms and humidifies the inspired air.
The use of an HME reduces the drying out of the mucous membranes in the tracheostoma and regulates the production of secretions, which prevents encrustations.
The housing contains an open-pored polyurethane sponge with hygroscopic characteristics. The HumidoTwin® is very compact, unobtrusive and light, and is very comfortable to wear. The HumidoTwin® HME’s functional multi-adapter has both a standardized, central opening for the attachment onto a tracheostomy tube with 15 mm connector, and a 22 mm connector ring. This makes HumidoTwin® perfectly suited for use with Duravent® or Duratwix® tracheostomy tubes, as well as other tube systems.
The cover element of the HumidoTwin® is also equipped with a safety-overpressure valve, with star-shaped slits, so that coughing does not cause problems. The advantages of the HumidoTwin® at a glance:
- compact design
- very light, only 1.9 g
- multi-adapter for connection to 15 mm and 22 mm systems
- overpressure valve
- easy operation
The HumidoTwin® HME is supplied in individual, hygienic packaging, in a packing unit of 30 pieces. The HumidoTwin® HME is intended for single use only and should be replaced after 24 hours, at the latest.
The use in combination with additional humidification or nebulizing through inhalation devices is not recommended!
