Description

Humidophone® Plus is a compact speaking valve with HME filter. The filter is located in front of the speaking valve flap, i.e. on the patient side.

Features and Benefits

The Humidophone® Plus filters the air during inspiration. The housing contains an open-pored polyurethane foam with hygroscopic characteristics creating an additional humidification effect.

The Humidophone® Plus speaking valve with HME filter is designed for the adaptation to 15mm connectors or 22mm connector rings, e.g., Dura vent®/ Duracuff® 15mm connector or 22mm combi-adapter, base plates/ adhesive plates. This makes Humidophone® Plus perfectly suited for use in combination with Duravent®, Duracuff® and Duratwix® tracheostomy tubes, as well as other tube systems. The Humidophone® Plus speaking valve enables tracheostomised patients with an intact larynx to speak.

The Humidophone® Plus is equipped with an optimised valve function, which enables easier speech formation. An inconspicuous appearance in a skin-coloured design provides a further advantage. The special feature of this speaking valve is the basic position of the valve membrane. It is closed and is briefly opened during inspiration. This makes the increased pressure for closing the valve, otherwise required to form speech, unnecessary. The system is less visible and, at the same time, offers greater comfort to the patient.

The Humidophone® Plus speaking valve is intended for single use only. The use in combination with further humidification or nebuliser aids through inhalation devices is not recommended!
