Transcend Heat Moisture Exchanger Overview

The Heat Moisture Exchanger (HME) is designed to provide moisture while using the Transcend Bedside Kit for Waterless Humidification with the following Somnetics machines:

  • Transcend 'Soft & Wearable' Travel CPAP Machine
  • Transcend Travel CPAP Machine
  • Transcend EZEX Travel CPAP Machine
  • Transcend Auto Travel CPAP Machine with EZEX

Please Note: This product is not compatible with the following machines:

  • Transcend 365
  • Transcend 3

It differs from traditional humidification by capturing heat and moisture from every breath, and then returning it to the air when you take your next breath. The HME is also much smaller than a humidification chamber and can easily be replaced. Hospitals employ HME technology to provide patients with ventilation.

The HME should be replaced each time you feel that you are not receiving adequate humidification. This averages about once per week. Keep the replacement HME sealed in its packaging until ready for use, as it will immediately start to collect moisture once exposed to the air.

What's Included:

  • 1 Replacement Heat Moisture Exchanger

Do these actually do anything?

You are supposed to change these weekly, though it is unclear why. They are expensive, and the humidification is... minimal. more...

Works without having to lug a bulky humidifier!

I bought the unit for when I travel. But I really need humidification( my machine is set on 14... and without it I dry out). This tiny device insert into the hose and captures the moisture in your exhaled breath and when you breath in delivers the moisture back to you. It doesn’t last forever and you need to replace it, so I don’t consider it a permanent or cost effective way to get humidification, but for travel it is ideal! I would highly recommend! more...

Work Okay, But Only Limited Time

These actually DO work - but they have a limited lifespan, once you open them up out of the bag.... They seem to ease the pain of not having the humidifier with you (I broke down and bought the humidifier - much, much better), but when you have to travel (especially international, and you don't have dual plugs of that type for that country) and you are in need of something for humidity - it works! more...
