The Airways Airoclean BVF/HME Filters are used in respiratory support equipment such as life support and human ventilation machines, fitted in the airway between equipment and patient
The removal of bacteria from the air breathed in the hospital environment is critical in the protection of the patients, other hospital personnel and breathing support equipments
Airways Aeroclean filters utilize hydrophobic membrane & synthetic media that provides barrier & electrostatic filtration with bacterial & vital removal effciency higher than 99.99% accompolished with extremely low resistance to airflow
The HME filter keeps moisture retention and warming of inhaled air
Airoclean filter design comes in different sizes with CO2 monitoring port,facilitating use on a wider range of patients
The heat and moisture exchange filters are equipped with multiple features: ◦ Clear housing ◦ Low flow resistance High filtration efficiency ◦ High heat & humidity level ◦ CO2 Montroring level ◦ Port Sterile package
The Airoclean BVF/HME Filters come in a standard packing of 10 units per box
Breathing filters are used to offer outstanding validated filtration efficiency for use in anaesthesia and intensive care. These filters are designed for the protection of the patient, hospital personnel and the equipment from potential microbial contamination.
Breathing filters and Heat and Moisture Exchangers (HME) help facilitate the normal warming, humidifying and filtering functions of the upper respiratory tract for a patient undergoing anesthesia or in intensive care. While heat and moisture exchangers regulate the inspired air by preventing the loss of moisture and heat, bacterial viral filters prevent transmission of hazardous particulate matter and microbes from the surrounding environment into the breathing system.
The use of filters is recommended to reduce the risk of cross-infection during procedures involving anesthesia if the breathing system is used for more than one patient. HME filters also reduce the need for cleaning tubing and equipment, making them more convenient for healthcare personnel when compared to the use of active humidifiers. They are better-suited for short-term use (less than or equal to 96 hours) and during patient transfer.
It is recommended to change the filter after each patient. The filters should be changed in every 24 hours if used on a single patient for a prolonged period.
