Humidobac is a bacterial / viral filter, with HME that assists in the protection of the patient and in the humidification of the air. HumidoBac is e.g., placed between the catheter mount and the y-piece of the ventilation system.
The HumidoBac filter should be exchanged when necessary, e.g., if a build up of secretions causes increased resistance, but after 24 hours at the latest.
Humidobac is intended for single use only. Humidobac is supplied in sterile, individual packaging.
