If you want to receive the most comfortable sleep from your CPAP machine it is recommended that you purchase a humidifier. Humidifiers eliminate the possibility of you inhaling dry air that can cause for an itchy and scratchy throat. See the bottom of this page for more information about our humidifiers.
A humidifier will help you avoid dryness and better adjust to your CPAP therapy. You can choose a humidifier that uses warm moisture or, water at room temperature if you are not interested in a humidifier that uses heating. As with all CPAP equipment, you must maintain your humidifier by cleaning and replacing parts on a regular basis.

CPAP humidifiers were developed in order to combat airway dryness that can be a result of your CPAP therapy. They maintain moisture in the pressurized air that your CPAP machine is delivering into your airways. Many machines have the option of an integrated humidifier, which means the humidifier is either built into, or attaches directly onto your CPAP machine. Power cords and space are saved with this option to streamline your CPAP experience. Spill protection is also a feature on many humidifiers which prevents water from you humidifier from getting into your machine. Water entering the inside of you machine has the potential to cause serious damage.
Like all of your CPAP equipment, you need to keep your humidifier clean to maintain it working properly. Bacterial growth can be a result of moisture, so it is recommended that you clean your water chamber as frequently as possible to maintain a healthy CPAP experience and environment.
Passover humidifiers are the older model of humidifiers. They direct your therapy air over a still basin of water, allowing it to pick up moisture before reaching your airway. This type of humidifier is not heated and your therapy air will be similar to the ambient temperature of your environment. The only work required on your end is filling the water chamber and cleaning it regularly.
Heated humidifiers are the newer model. They use heat by heating a water chamber in which air is evaporated into your therapy air. Some newer humidifier models are able to sense the environment of your CPAP machine and adjust your temperature and humidity levels to create the most comfortable experience possible. These options are great for those in arid environments, but not everyone finds it necessary to have a humidifier.
