NOTE: Heat Moisture Exchange Humidifiers 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).
When selecting a mask, the Heat Moisture Exchange Unit for CPAP Machines will not work with masks that have a short tube extended from the mask frame. The HME must be very close to the moisture of exhaled air to function properly. It must be connected to a mask with
a simple elbow in order to give optimal results.
