Heat and Moisture Exchangers (HMEs)
Intersurgical's range of heat and moisture exchangers are designed to replicate the functions of the body’s upper airway by conserving expired heat and moisture and returning them to the patient during inhalation and are suitable for ventilated and spontaneously breathing patients.
The Heat and Moisture Exchanging Filters (HMEFs)
The range of heat and moisture exchanging filters (HMEFs) combines the filtration efficiency of dedicated breathing filters with optimum moisture return provided by the addition of an HME element. Designed for use at the patient connection.
The range can be used in combination with patient connections to allow improved positioning and reduce any pull on the patient airway. Catheter mounts are available in three types of tube: Flextube™, Smoothbore or Intersurgical Superset. Elbows are available either fixed or with a double swivel for extra mobility.
