Slowpoke, you're confusing me a bit with what you are trying to accomplish.
Thanks for any help.
I just watched the video for the Transcend waterless humidification kit. The Transend hose is a standard hose and therefore the mask and the humidification kit can be connected to any cpap. Transcend uses a hose adapter (so does Z1) to reduce the standard hose to fit the smaller machine.
In my opinion any efficiency gained by the Transcend design resulting in a slight increase in comfort (not convinced that there is any difference really) would be offset that you would be using a different mask than you're bedside unit...unless your desire was to switch to the Transcend mask 100% of the time.
What are you looking to accomplish?
Thanks for the reply Bill,
I have a ResMed S9 with humidifier. I want to leave the humidifier at home when I travel.
The Transcend design looks superior to using a "universal" HME. But looking at the youtube videos on the Transcend it appears that the tubing has fixed special ends unlike the Z1 that uses an adapter.
I was hoping that some one had experience using a universal HME. Looking at your posts it appears that the Z1 HME is installed similarly to the universal so I guess the latter would work OK on the S9. Worth giving it a try anyway.
Thanks for help.
