Improving Patient Safety
Developed with The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King's Lynn NHS Foundation Trust.
New Heat and Moisture Exchanger (HME) visually alerts staff if connected to a humidified breathing circuit in error, potentially saving patients lives.
The inadvertent use of HME with a heated humidifier in breathing circuits can result in risks of critical airway obstruction for patients with fatal consequences.
Humidicare incorporates a unique safety engineered solution within an HME to provide a consistent and predictable solution to help prevent such medical ‘never events’.
