HME Disposable Bacterial / Viral Filter HME Filter (SH 2095) - Heat and Moisture exchange filters are devices used in mechanically ventilated patients intended to help prevent complications due to drying of the respiratory mucosa, such as mucus plugging and endotracheal tube (ETT) occlusion.HMEs are one type of commercial humidification system, which also include non-heated-wire humidifiers and heated-wire humidifiers.
The basic components of heat and moisture exchangers are foam, paper, or a substance which acts as a condensation and absorption surface. The material is often impregnated with hygroscopic salts such as calcium chloride, to enhance the water-retaining capacity. HMEs used for laryngectomees are mostly hygroscopic. HMEs can vary in size but they are designed to fit all adhesives or other attachment devices within a certain product line.
