Hi bokie,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
I'm not really to familiar with HMEs but I do know they are disposable and only last a few days to a week. In my opinion, they wouldn't bee very practical and in the end, I wonder if they wouldn't be more expensive than the traditional humidifiers..
Just a thought.
Hang in there for more answers to your question and best of luck to you as you continue CPAP therapy.
