Generic CPAP Heat Moisture Exchanger (HME)
The Z1/Z2 generic Heat Moisture Exchanger (HME) offers heated humidification without the use of a bulky humidifier. Unlike many other HMEs which work exclusively with the machine they are designed for, the Breas Z1/Z2 generic HME is compatible with all CPAP and BiPAP machines. It can be attached to any tubing and mask with standard 22mm connections. This HME is not washable and is effective at providing heated humidification for up to 7 days.
How does the CPAP HME work?
The HME traps heat and moisture from the user's exhaled breath, releasing them during the next inhalation to provide heat and humidity. Because of this design, the closer the Z1/Z2 HME is to the user, the more effective it is. To use this HME, simply attach it to the mask end of your CPAP tube prior to connecting the tubing to your mask.
