Clinical Challenges The utilization of heat and moisture exchangers (HMEs) and breathing system filters in the OR, the ICU as well as other settings is an approach to address concerns commonly associated with mechnical ventilation: proper humidification of inspired air and cross-infection. Humidification Humidification of the inspired gas in mechanical ventilation has been shown to contribute to the prevention of ventilatorassociated pneumonia (VAP).1 Passive humidification as performed by heat and moisture exchangers additionally decreases condensation and moisture accumulation in the...

In several countries national medical associations have already put forth guidelines recommending the utilization of breathing system filters. In its November 2002 publication “Infection Control in Anaesthesia” 15, the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland recommends using a new breathing system filter for each patient. There is evidence that breathing circuits are often contaminated with transmissible microorganisms and blood.19, 20 Furthermore, the possibility of cross-infection of Hepatitis C20 and the occurrence of multiple-resistant tuberculosis pathogens have also...

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 safeguarding 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. CombiStar Family CombiStar is an...
