Freevent XtraCare HME contains an electrostatic filter that effectively reduces the inhalation of airborne particles via the tracheostoma and protects others around you during exhalation. Freevent XtraCare HME fits on a standard 15 mm ISO connector.
Please note: Since pathogens can enter and leave the human body in other ways, (such as mouth, nose and eyes). Freevent XtraCare can never guarantee complete protection. Please read the instructions for guidance.

What is an HME?
Freevent HMEs sit on the end of your tracheostomy tubes and allows you to breathe through them. HMEs (Heath and Moisture Exchangers) help reduce coughing and mucus production while easing irritation in your windpipe.
