Portex Thermovent® T - Heat and Moisture Exchanger (HME) provides humidification for naturally breathing or ventilated patients whose upper airways are bypassed by a tracheostomy tube. The exchanger easily accommodates the Portex Thermovent 02 and has full compatibility with breathing systems. Its lightweight, low profile design minimizes drag on the tracheostomy tube. The exchanger keeps the trach moist by capturing heat and moisture on expiration and returns it to the patient in inspiration. This efficiency reduces the risk of tube blockage from encrustations by preventing thickened secretions.
Thermovent T- Heat and Moisture Exchanger can only be used for 24 hours but can be changed out as often as needed. Contamination is easily detected with the clear housing. The simple opening port provides quick and easy access for a suction catheter to eliminate secretions.
