Product Details

Transcend Micro Travel CPAP AirMist HME Kit

The AirMist HME Kit includes a reusable AirMist HME Adapter which houses a replaceable HME cartridge. These HME cartridges trap heat and moisture from the exhaled breath, releasing them during the next inhalation to provide heat and humidity. Each Transcend HME cartridge is individually packaged and remains effective for up to 7 days once opened. Please note that these HME cartridges are not washable.

To set up your Transcend Micro with the AirMist HME Kit, simply connect one end of the AirMist Adapter to the tubing and the other end to your CPAP mask. The AirMist Adapter is compatible with the Transcend Micro Standard 6Ft Tube as well as the Micro AirFlex 6Ft Tube.


  1. Remove the HME cartridge from the foil package. Handle by the plastic shroud, not the foam core.
  2. Unscrew the HME adapter bottom from the HME adapter top and place the HME cartridge inside the HME adapter bottom.
  3. Place the HME adapter top onto the HME adapter bottom and gently turn the top until the adapter compresses together on the HME cartridge.
  4. Securely attach the HME adapter bottom to your hose.
  5. Securely attach the HME adapter top to your mask.

Note: The AirMist HME Kit is compatible with all CPAP masks with standard 22mm connections. However, its effectiveness in providing humidification may be reduced when connected to a mask with short tubing, such as the AirFit P10 or Wisp. This is because heat and moisture need to travel down the short tubing before they can reach the HME.

FAQ

How do I clean my AirMist HME Kit?
Clean the AirMist HME Adapter once a week with mild soap and warm water. Remove the HME cartridge from the adapter before cleaning. Soak the AirMist Adapter in warm, soapy water and wash the interior and exterior of the adapter with a lint-free cloth. Rinse thoroughly and air dry away from direct sunlight.

The HME cartridge cannot be cleaned and should be replaced after 3 to 7 days of use.

Can I purchase replacement AirMist HME cartridges separately?
Yes, replacement AirMist HME cartridges can be purchased separately from the AirMist Adapter. The HME cartridges are available in packs of 8.

Subject: Use with P-10 mask
For my P-10 mask, the connection with the Transcend HME is a clear acrylic to clear acrylic "pressure fit" rather than a soft seal (i.e., it's not like a hose connector). The fitting on the P-10 goes in less than halfway and can wobble loose, if not pressed tightly enough, but might crack, if pressed too hard. It "works"...but it's poorly engineered.

Thank you for your feedback William.
I see you are renting the Airmini, the rep may have suggested a cost effective waterless humidification for your short term rental. However, we will be happy to share your feedback with the manufacturer Transcend.
Since you have the P10 you can purchase the Airmini P10 Set up pack which comes with the HumidX, the humidifier made for the Airmini, the cost for the set up pack is $165.00 and I see an online sale right now for $140.25. Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions!

So far, so good with these. I don't think anything can equal a home unit with the water tank on it, but this has kept me from waking all dry and crusty while traveling.

Question
I want to use an adapter for my AirMini so I can use my normal mask, but then I can’t use the HumidX. Will this HME work with any CPAP machine hose?

Answer
Hi there, this was designed specifically for the Transcend. You can purchase these other heat moisture exchangers to use with your Airmini. Please note they last about 5-7 days each and must be replaced: https://www.respshop.com/cpap-masks/parts/othe-parts/hdm-z1-heat-and-moisture-exchanger-p-763.html

Question
Are there any nasal pillow masks that come apart near the mask to add the airmist for optimal humidity?

Answer
Unfortunately, the generic HME only fits between the hose and the mask. Nothing between the mask frame and the adapter of the mask. Unless you have the airmini. Which the Aifit P10 and the HumidX is closer to the nasal adapter.

Question
Will these work with a Phillips dreamwear mask that connects to the hose on top of my head? Would I need to moisten them rather than rely on exhaled breath to create the moisture?

Answer
The waterless humidifiers work best with a mask that connects the hose to the front of the face so the humidity is direct. We do not recommend using water to moisten the filters.

Question
Will this kit work with a Simplus full face mask?

Answer
Yes this will work.

Question
Where does the water come from? How is a water source connected to the device?

Answer
The Heat Moisture Exchange unit is a waterless humidification system that captures moisture from your exhaled breath and returns it when needed
