Features of the Portex Filtered Heat and Moisture Exchanger:
Portex® HMEs provide efficient heat and moisture recovery.
All HMEs exhibit low resistance to flow and high moisture output which helps to minimize the loss of heat and moisture in ventilated or spontaneously breathing patients.
All HMEs and filters have ISO standard tapered ends to assure a consistent leak-free seal.
All Portex® HMEs and filters are latex-free.
