HUMIDICARE

Improving Patient Safety

Developed with The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King's Lynn NHS Foundation Trust.

Product Description

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’.

"I feel that HUMIDICARE will help make everyday clinical practice that little bit safer."

"Clinicians typically are reluctant to significantly change their practice especially regarding rare events and the beauty of humidicare is that they will not have to, as it fits seamlessly with current practices"
