Humidophone® is a compact speaking valve with an HME (Heat and Moisture Exchanger).
Features and Benefits
The Humidophone® filters the air during inspiration. The housing contains an open-pored polyurethane foam with hygroscopic characteristics, creating an additional humidification effect. The filter is located in front of the speaking valve flap, i.e. on the patient side. The Humidophone® speaking valve with HME filter is designed for the adaptation to a 22mm connector ring, e.g., Duravent®/Duracuff® 22mm combi-adapter, base plate/adhesive plates. This makes Humidophone® perfectly suited for use in combination with Duravent®, Duracuff® and Duratwix® tracheostomy tubes, as well as other tube systems. The Humidophone® speaking valve enables tracheostomised patients with an intact larynx to speak.
