Humidifiers/Chambers

A CPAP humidifier can warm and add moisture to the pressurized air for your sleep therapy.   Positive airway pressure sleep therapy may dry out the nasal passages. Warm humidified air can significantly increase the comfort of your sleep therapy.  Improved comfort means improved compliance to sleep therapy.   Find humidifiers and CPAP humidifier chambers at PatientSleepSupplies.com.

A very common complaint of CPAP patients is of nasal dryness associated with CPAP therapy.  The constant flow of pressurized air through the nasal passages can cause them to dry out and become uncomfortable.   Using a CPAP humidifier, the pressurized air is warmed and moistened, reducing or preventing the dryness of airways. 

Using a CPAP humidifier also increases the chance of condensation and rain out in your CPAP tubing.  As the warm and moist air travels through the tube, it meets the colder temperature of the tube and some of the moisture in the air will condense into liquid.  As the condensed liquid pools, it can be pushed up the tube by the pressurized air and splash the patient through the mask.  This is known as rain out.

If condensation becomes an issue with using humidified CPAP, simple solutions can be using heated tubing so that the air temperature in the tube is warm enough so that the moisture does not condense.  This can also be accomplished with a tube cover that effectively insulates the CPAP tubing and keeps the temperature inside the tubing more constant with the warm pressurized air, thereby preventing condensation.

In any environment where there is moisture, bacteria can grow, so it is always important to clean your humidifier and your CPAP tubing regularly.
