HME is a device which is passive to provide moisture and heat for tracheostomy patients and intubated patients.
Great Group Medical Co., Ltd.
HME is protecting tracheostomized patients from heat and humidity loss resulting from breathing through artificial airways which bypass the mouth, nose and pharynx. The translucent moulded plastic housing contains a hygroscopic material that traps the heat and moisture from the expired air and return it to the inspired air.
FHME is a combined heat and moisture exchanger (HME) and bacterial/viral filter for humidification and bacterial/viral filtration during anaesthesia and intensive care.
