The HME (Heat-Moisture-Exchanger) filter cassettes for heat and moisture exchange, condition the air, improve the quality of speech and are simple to use, independent of whether the patients use a voice prosthesis or not. A tracheostomy leads to a loss of mouth/nose breathing, this means that the filtering, warming and humidification of the air has to happen in a different way. To prevent irritation of the airways, due to dry air, dust or harmful substances contained in the air, a filter is required. After surgery, tracheostomised/laryngectomised patients frequently suffer from increased production of mucous and coughing. These symptoms can impair speech rehabilitation and breathing. The regular use of HME filter cassettes with Heat and Moisture Exchangers alleviates the symptoms and increases the quality of life.
