What Is Waterless Humidification?
Discover HumidX, the ResMed waterless humidification system that’s exclusive to AirMini. HumidX HumidX Plus and HumidX F20 are small Heat and Moisture Exchangers (HME) that are designed to provide you with more comfort by offering relief from possible dryness and congestion. They work by retaining the moisture and heat in the air you breathe. When you exhale, heat and moisture is captured and stored within the HME’s tiny paper ridges. When you inhale, this heat and moisture is released to humidify the air you breathe in.
HumidX comes in three versions:
For people who use N20 and N30 nasal masks and the P10 nasal pillows mask:
- HumidX is suitable in average conditions with medium to high humidity and medium to high temperatures.
- HumidX Plus is for use in extra dry conditions, including aircraft cabins.
For people who use F20 full face masks:
- HumidX F20 can be used with AirFit and AirTouch F20 full face masks in most climates and sleep environments. The HumidX F20 clicks directly into the F20 cushion.
