Heat/Moisture Exchanger (HME)

The Z1™ Heat Moisture Exchange (HME) is an inline humidification solution unit for use with the Z1. It is a waterless humidification that requires no additional power and takes up very little space. A great alternative to large humidifiers.

Simply attach the HME between your mask and your standard CPAP or BiPAP tubing. After that, turn on your machine and experience a steady flow of humidified sleep therapy air. HME Filters should be changed about once a week for best results.

When using your CPAP or BiPAP the HME Filter captures heat and moisture from the air as you exhale. It then returns heat and moisture to the breathing circuit with each inhalation creating a comfortable, effective and convenient humidified breathing system.

Usage

To install a Heat Moisture Exchanger for therapeutic use, connect the large diameter end of the HME to your mask and the smaller diameter end to your CPAP tube. Be sure both connections are full seated and secure. Your HME is now ready for use.

Replacing HME’s

Heat Moisture Exchangers should be changed as needed when humidification levels appear to drop – usually about once a week with proper storage and nightly use. When not in use HMEs should be stored a sealed plastic bag (i.e. a ZipLock). The HME will immediately begin to collect moisture and humidity when exposed to air. (Note: In-Line HME packaging originally recommended replacement of the HME on a daily basis; however weekly changes have been found to be more effective and the packaging is being updated to reflect this.)

I use this with travel machine so I don't have to Lug around a humidifier.

I have used this for trips to Hawaii and Britain. I am very satisfied. I am interested to see how it works in a more arid climate like Arizona next fall. The science makes sense so I expect it will be okay.

Works very well when I travel

It makes for a compact unit for travel however, I cannot tell when the device is no longer functioning to provide proper moisture.

Great for travel

as I get older I try to pack lighter for trips - the HME makes travel without a humidifier possible...I love it - only good for 5 days

HME a must with the Z1.

This small unit works great for humidifying CPAP or APAP air and is a much needed addition to the Z1. Extremely convenient as there is no need to worry about adding water to a reservoir.

worth the price!

my husband was travelling to Saudi Arabia on a job and we got these so he wouldn't have to worry about getting distilled water and cleaning a humidifier all the time. They are lightweight, so travel is no problem, and not too expensive...well worth the price for the convenience. And they work well, too!
