Description

These inline HME Filters are easy to install and should not require re-calibration on most CPAP machines. 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.

REPLACEMENT: 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.)

  • So-So

    They do at least provide some help with my need for humidity, so I continue to purchase. I think they expensive, so use them for a couple days and seal in a plastic bag. I have tried spraying the filter with a sterile saline solution for extra humidity and that helps.

  • Review from Hawaii

    The HME is simple, light and effective. I did not experience the dryness I get when I use a CPAP without a Humidifier.

  • works well

    I used one of these on a 4 day trip. It worked well. No substitute for a full humidifier, But ok for traveling without humidifier.

  • Very Pleased!!!

    The Z1 is perfect!!! I am love it! I cannot wait to travel with it. I did try it the first night I received it and didn't like it too much then I tried it again and I just love it. I know it's going to be great when traveling with something so small instead of my big CPAP machine. It's almost like carrying another suitcase. This way I can pack the machine in my suitcase.

  • Works well

    I didn't think this little humidifier would work but it does. There was hardly any adjustment period for me to get used to the difference. Mine lasts about 6 days before I need to change it. A good product.

  • Reno is Dry This Time of Year (late Sept)

    I made the mistake of only packing one humidifier filter for an eight day motorcycle trip through Oregon and Northern Cali. First three of four days the humidifier filter worked pretty well. Following that, not so much. My fault for not taking a couple filters with me. I would recommend. Work well as described.

  • Heat Moisture Exchange

    I am using my Z1 for travel and the humidifier filter for my machine has been a life-saver. I have used it for a three day trip, a five day trip and now will be using it for a 31 day trip. Yippeee!

  • Meh

    I bought a few of these to test out as a humidifier substitute for a trip I'm taking later in the year. The HME fit my mask and tube just fine. The literature said that each HME could be used for up to 1 week and should be stored in an airtight Ziploc when not in use. The first night was pretty good. I was a little stuffy in the morning, but no where near as bad as when I go without humidification. Unfortunately, each subsequent night got progressively worse. On the 5th night, I switched back to my humidifier as I woke up with a sore throat and was extremely stuffy the entire day. Based on my experience, you may get up to 3 decent nights use per HME.
