People who have undergone partial or total laryngectomy become neck breathers. That means that they breathe from a new opening at the base of the neck called a tracheostoma - stoma.
The skin-toned stoma filters help ease the breathing with their soft, free-flowing foam that offers no resistance while assisting in warming and moistening the respiratory air.
The moisture transfer properties provide better humidification within the trachea. It’s very important for the stoma to be protected and to observe the humidification levels of the breathable air. Furthermore, it helps warm and moisten the breathable air.
The package of 30 individual squares of foam protects your lungs and keeps your stoma damp by filtering the air as you inhale.
Low resistance, lightweight these Stoma Filters offer the laryngectomee comfortable and unobtrusive protection against dust, dirt, and pollen, while helping warm and moisten the air coming to the respiratory tract. Designed for single-use, with a hypoallergenic non-irritating self-adhesive strip that is comfortable and can be applied in seconds.
