The ResMed AirMini requires no water for its humidification. The Humidx tabs come in two different forms, standard or Humidx plus, offering variable levels of humidification. CPAP users often complain about having to maintain and wash their humidifier. These waterless tabs provide the solution; no cleaning required. The HumidX tabs are to be replaced every 30 days. The 30 day duration is measured from opening of the packet, not 30 days of use. When you first purchased the ResMed AirMini, sample packs of both the HumidX and the HumidX Plus were provided. Once you have tried both and worked out your preference, we advise buying a packet to ensure you have some in stock. When replacing your HumidX, ensure that the coloured component of the HumidX is facing away from your mask toward the tube. It will “click” into place. How it works:
The HumidX system is very impressive. It will trap the moisture and heat from your exhaled breath, while filtering out the Carbon Dioxide. Our patient’s love that there is no more cleaning of the water based humidifier tubs. Also, power consumption is much lower, as there is no need to power a heater plate and heated tube. Dr SleepRight says:We must admit, we were concerned how HumidX could possibly work. The first night AirMini was released, we were eager to take it home to try. We were super impressed with the HumidX performance. No cleaning is a huge bonus too. Because this is a travel device, we know it will be powered by batteries regularly. With no extra power required for a heater plate or a heated tube, the amount of power the AirMini is used is significantly reduced. This means you will get more usage out of AirMini out of each battery charge.
