Waterless Humidification? How is that possible?
Transcend Waterless Humidification Introduction
Transcend gives you all the warm, moist air you need for a comfortable nights sleep no water needed! Patent pending heat and moisture exchange (HME) technology eliminates the hassles of old fashioned heated, water-filled humidifiers. And you can only find this technology with Transcend!
Heat moisture exchange humidification has been used in hospitals for more than 50 years to provide heat and moisture to critically and chronically ill patients on ventilators. Until Transcend, no CPAP manufacturer has been able to crack the code for using this unique and important technology in sleep apnea therapy.
How it works
The hygienic heat and moisture exchange (HME) filter cartridge is disposable and has no electric elements. HME technology works with you naturally as you breathe. When you exhale, the HME captures the warmth and moisture from your breath while CO2 passes through the filter and out the mask vent leak. Then, when you inhale, the HME warms and humidifies the air as it passes through the HME filter. Its a simple, natural and effective solution to the heated humidifier. With Waterless Humidification theres no cleaning, no distilled water, no break downs, and no malfunctions. Just warm, moist comfort with every breath.
Transcend H6B and H9M Waterless Humidification Systems
The Transcend H6B and H9M Waterless Humidification Systems provide humidification by using special air delivery hoses that measure CPAP pressure at the mask, downstream of the HME filter. This provides constant and consistent therapy pressure all through the night. The proprietary HME-compatible mask shell is interchangeable between the Transcend H6B and H9M Systems.
The Transcend H6B System comes with an HME-compatible 6 air delivery hose to provide broad flexibility for use, while the H9M System gives you a wearable CPAP option that provides the most freedom of movement of any CPAP on the market. With the H9M air is delivered down a short, 9-inch air delivery hose, giving you the smallest and most compact CPAP option on the market.
Compatible with the most popular nasal seals on the market
The proprietary HME-compatible interface uses adaptor rings that allow use with the most popular nasal seals on the market, including:
- ResMed Ultra Mirage II Nasal CPAP Mask
- ResMed Mirage SoftGel Nasal CPAP Mask
- ResMed Mirage Activa LT Nasal CPAP Mask
- ResMed Mirage Activa Nasal CPAP Mask
- Philips Respironics ComfortGel Original Nasal CPAP Mask
- Philips Respironics ComfortGel Blue Nasal CPAP Mask
Traveling with humidification is easier when its waterless. The Transcend HME is disposable and has no electric heating elements. That means no cleaning, no distilled water, no break downs, and no malfunctions. Just replace the HME filter cartridge once a week and throw the old one away.
Your breathing powers the Transcend Waterless Humidification System. No batteries or AC power required. And, you can leave the jug of distilled water at home. You wont need it anymore!
Hygienic and natural
HME technology has been used in hospital ventilation for more than 50 years, but Transcend is the first CPAP to offer this innovative humidification technology. With Transcend there are no more slimy trays to clean, just remove the old filter cartridge and throw it away. You get all the humidification you need just by breathing.
Pressure regulated at the mask
Regulating therapy pressure at the mask, next to you, the patient, gives more consistent and concise therapy pressure than by regulating at the CPAP, six feet away. Youre over here, not over there.
Small, portable, and complete
The HME filter cartridge is incredibly small about the diameter of a quarter making the whole Transcend System small, portable, and lightweight. The Transcend Waterless Humidification System completes the compact CPAP system for hassle-free travel or use at home.
