A better way to breathe

Prior to surgery, the upper airway works hard to heat and moisturize the air you breathe. After a tracheotomy HMEs can help do this for you. An HME sits on top of your tracheostomy tube and you breathe through it.

The HME ‘conditions’ the air you breathe by providing heat and moisture to your lungs. As a result, the HME compensates for the lost function of the upper airway.

TrachPhone , Freevent XtraCare, Tracoe Humid Assist III and IV are all HMEs that provide heat and moisture to the inhaled air.
