Dräger offers an extensive portfolio of high-performing HMEs and breathing system filters.
The TwinStar breathing system filters/HMEs from Dräger combine all the advantages of the CareStar and the HumidStar or the SafeStar and the HumidStar. They efficiently humidify and heat the inspired air of the ventilator dependent patient.
Additionally, with their high bacterial and viral filtration efficiency rates they exceptionally sustain infection-prevention since TwinStar supports protection of the patient from potentially present microorganisms in the inspired air as well as safe-guarding the ventilator breathing system from airborne micro-organisms that the patient exhales.
A highlight is the TwinStar HEPA which contains a hydrophobic filter membrane of coated glass fiber. This membrane cannot be passed by potentially contaminated fluids (e.g. blood, sputum, condensate) under normal pressure conditions of mechanical ventilation.
