Breathing Systems Filters/HMEs

The use of breathing system filters and heat and moisture exchanger (HME) in the OR, the ICU, as well as other settings, helps to address concerns commonly associated with mechanical ventilation: proper humidification of inspired air and cross-infection. In order to support the clinician and to properly address these specific challenges, Dräger offers an extensive portfolio of breathing system filters, a high-performing HME, and a combination filter/HME.
