Inline HME (Heat Moisture Exchange) Humidifier for CPAP Machines (DISCONTINUED)
SIMPLE, PROVEN & EFFECTIVE HUMIDIFICATION
Heat Moisture Exchange humidification has been used for decades in hospitals and labs; and now HME Humidifier Filters are available for users at home and when traveling as well! 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.
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
For years CPAP users have been prone to increased allergies and sickness due to impurities in sleep therapy air. These HME Filters include a built in Bacterial Viral Filter layer, that works in conjunction with your machine's built in filters, to actively clean the air you breathe to provide exceptionally clean therapy air.
SAFE, EASY & CONVENIENT
These inline HME/BV Filters are easy to install and should not require re-calibration on most CPAP machines. Simply attach the filter between your mask and your standard CPAP or BiPAP tubing. After that, turn on your machine and experience a steady flow of clean, fresh, humidified sleep therapy air.
USAGE: To install a Heat Moisture Exchanger / Bacterial Viral Filter for therapeutic use, connect the large diameter end of the HME/BV Filter to your mask and the smaller diameter end to your CPAP tube. Be sure both connections are full seated and secure. Your HME/BV Filter is now ready for use.
REPLACEMENT: Heat Moisture Exchanger / Bacterial Viral Filters are disposable and should be replaced whenever the white filter material begins to look dirty or humidification levels begin to drop -- usually about once a week with proper storage and nightly use. When not in use HME/BV Filters 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.
AUTO-ADJUSTING MACHINE NOTES: Use of Inline HME/BV Filters may adversely effect auto sensing on Auto-CPAP systems especially at pressures below 7 CM H2O. If your average treatment pressure is below 7 CM H2O Inline HME/BV Filters are not recommended.
