Respiratory & CPAP Humidification
Research proves the benefits of humidification for CPAP users.
Up to 40%1 of nasal CPAP users experience nasal congestion and dryness of the nose and throat.
The warm, moist air that humidification provides has been proven2 to relieve symptoms of dryness and can make therapy more comfortable.
In fact, compliance gains may be realised sooner if patients are started with heated humidity at CPAP initiation.3
