The AirLife Hygroscopic Humidifier is a small and compact humidifier which is ideal for patients on artificial ventilation due to loss of the ability to breathe normally through the nose. It is compatible with most breathing systems and tracheostomy tubes and facilitates better spontaneous breathing.
The AirLife Type 1 HCH is small and has a compact design. It is light in weight and hence does not cause any discomfort to the patient due to tracheostomy tube drag. It helps ensure that the patient breathes normally through the tube by maintaining the natural level of humidity in their breath. It traps the moisture and heat when the patient is breathing out. This way, when the patient breathes in, the air is humidified to the same level as it was during expiration. The CardinalHealth Type 1 Trach humidifier also works as an efficient bacterial and viral filtration unit. It filters out all the harmful bacteria during the exchange of air and helps eliminate the risk of contamination or infection.
It fits all standard tracheostomy tubes with fifteen millimeter closures. It has a huge tidal volume range to accommodate for the natural needs of individual customers. The humidifier is latex-free and hence suitable for users with latex allergies.
