The Humidofix® HME is a Heat and Moisture Exchanger and can be used for tracheostomy tube wearers.
Features and Benefits
The HME is attached to the 15mm connector of a tracheostomy tube. Expired warmth and moisture are held back, conserved and applied to the inspired air. The high moisture extraction reduces the risk of encrustations in the tracheostoma.
The functional design of the Humidofix®, with integrated paper filter, ensures maximum comfort. Humidofix® HMEs are intended for patients with spontaneous breathing. The humidification effect sets in after only a few breaths.
To avoid accumulations of secretions, the HME should be regularly exchanged. Humidofix® is intended for single use only.
Humidofix® is supplied in individual, sterile packaging, in a box of 30.
To use the Humidofix® HME, at the same time as an oxygen supply, a special adapter for an oxygen connector (accessory) for Humidofix® is required. This consists of a holder for the attachment to the HME and a transparent plastic tube for the oxygen supply.
