Another Transcend option is a unique waterless humidification system. The system uses a simple, natural and effective technology called heat moisture exchange (HME). HME technology has been used in hospital ventilation for over 50 years. Transcend is the first to use it in a CPAP system. The Transcend waterless humidification system provide humidification via a small HME insert that fits into the mask. The HME insert captures the heat and moisture exchange from your breath as you exhale and returns the heat and moisture as you inhale. This eliminates the hassles of a water-filled humidifier by working naturally with your breath to provide the humidification that you need while keeping the CPAP unit small and portable.
The Transcend waterless humidification system works with the following masks:
- ResMed Ultra Mirage™ II Nasal Seal - ResMed Mirage SoftGel™ Nasal Seal - ResMed Mirage Activa LT™ Nasal Seal - ResMed Mirage Activa™ Nasal Seal - Philips Respironics ComfortGel™ Original Nasal Seal - Philips Respironics ComfortGel™ Blue Nasal Seal
