ResMed has re-invented the Humidair line of CPAP humidifiers.
The Humidaire H5i incorporates an intelligent humidity controlling technology, Climate Control. The humidifier integrates and is powered by ResMed S9 Series Machines with no extra outlets or additional power supply needed. Set the simple Dial Control to the desired temperature and let the (optional) ClimateLine tubing provide a new level of control.

Climate Control Technology
- Humidification is managed through a combination of the S9 machine, H5i humidifier and (Optional) ClimateLine heated tubing. There are five sensors throughout the system that monitor ambient temperature and patient airflow:
- Flow Sensor in S9 Series machine
- Heater Plate Sensor
- Ambient Temperature Sensor on H5i
- Humidity Sensor on H5i
- Mask Temperature Sensor Built into the ClimateLine Tubing
The (Optional) ClimateLine heated tubing uses a built-in mask temperature sensor to optimize relative humidity at the mask. Sensors inside and outside the CPAP machine closely monitor changes in humidity and help prevent condensation from forming inside the tube.
(Optional) ClimateLine Tubing
The (Optional) ClimateLine Tubing has an internal heated coil and mask temperature sensor that stops rainout in the the hose. Climate Control algorithms measure temperatures from the humidifier to prevent such condensation from forming. The (Optional) ClimateLine Tubing can use the (Optional) SlimLine Tubing Wrap to prevent that "plastic on skin" feeling.
ResMed has incorporated a Warm-Up feature for the H5i heater plate. Users can now navigate the S9 display to the Humidity Level icon and preheat the H5i heater plate by holding down the Push Dial for 3 seconds. A Warming Up icon with a progress bar appears on the machine's display, indicating how long until the heater plate will reach full temperature.
(Optional) Dishwasher Safe Water Chamber
The Humidaire H5i is a sleek design that snaps right onto the S9 machines. For added convenience, the flip-top lid allows users to fill the water chamber without removing the tubing. The chamber itself has a high water capacity of 380mls and is very efficient.
Another great feature is the (Optional) dishwasher-safe chamber's ability to be disassembled and washed in a high temperature environment like a dishwasher. Now a standard feature, the chamber's useful life can last longer than the 6 month recommended replacement for sealed chambers.
