A heat and moisture exchanger (HME) works as an artificial nose – it helps to heat and moisturize inhaled air. It retains humidity in the airways that would otherwise be lost by breathing through an open tracheostoma. As a result many users experience fewer problems with coughing and mucus production. This improves voicing, sleeping – and the quality of life.
Atos Medical Provox HME Cassette
The HME cassettes are the core of Atos Medical’s product line for pulmonary rehabilitation and are intended to be placed in front of the tracheostoma. The Provox HME Cassette facilitates manual stoma occlusion with the help of a simple lid/spring-valve mechanism, thereby improving speech as well as hygiene. It is designed with side openings, which means that the HME can be discreetly hidden; there will be no wet stains on the clothing and inhaled air can be drawn from the warming body rather than directly from the surrounding air. An HME is most effective when worn day and night. It usually takes some weeks until the pulmonary symptoms improve. During the first weeks of use, the patient may experience increased mucus production.
