Blom-Singer HME (Heat Moisture Exchange) SystemNow available with a more porous EasyFlow filter and a matte beige surface texture, the Blom-Singer HME system has two options to help you improve your quality of life by serving as a partial replacement for lost nasal functions: the original Blom-Singer HME and the new Blom-Singer EasyFlow HME. They both do so by filtering and exchanging cool, dry air for warm and moist air. It's critical for laryngectomees to breathe in air that contains the proper heat and moisture content to protect the trachea and lower airway from drying and cooling. Both HME models do this without obstructing your ability to breathe or speak. Daily, regular use of the Blom-Singer HME System contributes to a healthier respiratory tract, restores airflow resistance, and helps to maintain optimal lung ventilation.
Held in place by the TruSeal adhesive housing, the HME is placed over the tracheostoma for inhaled and exhaled air to pass through. A sophisticated low profile translucent material helps the HME cartridge discretely blend with the TruSeal adhesive housing.
The Blom-Singer HME System also features an integrated MucusShield occluder that provides protection to the HumidiFilter from mucus secretions and creates an air-tight seal closure for speech. Many laryngectomees suffer from involuntary coughing and excessive mucus production due to loss of their larynx. Studies indicate patients using a Blom-Singer HME have experienced a 60% reduction in mucus when using the device for at least seven consecutive days. This amount of time is needed to allow the airway sufficient time to adapt and recognize the benefits of the HumidiFilter.
Reduced mucus, less coughing, and improved voice quality can increase your self-confidence, and give you more freedom in social situations by reducing the discomfort that comes with feeling as though your condition is drawing unwanted attention.
The EasyTouch speech button represents an innovative step forward because it makes stoma occlusion simple:
The TruSeal Adhesive Housing is a lightweight disposable, all-inclusive adhesive tape-disc/housing that holds the HME cartridge in place. Available in three shapes: Standard, Round and Oval; and in two styles: Basic, and the more flexible Contour. The Contour style is also available with the more discrete Low Profile option that positions the HME cartridge deeper in the stoma opening (61.5% lower), so it is more flush with the surface of the housing.
The NEW Blom-Singer AccuFit Adhesive Housing is our strongest, most adhesive Contour Housing Style option with increased elasticity and higher resistance to tearing. Available in choice of Round, Oval and Extra-Oval.
The Blom-Singer HME System does not require a prescription and comes fully assembled in a 30-day supply. You can circle the same convenient day on your calendar each month to reorder and you do not have to contact your doctor. The Blom-Singer HME System is reimbursable for Medicare patients.
