Heated humidification was developed to condition the air you breathe as you sleep, adding humidity and increasing air temperature. The force of air from your CPAP machine can be difficult to adjust to, particularly as it removes moisture from the nasal cavity. It interferes with your nose doing its normal job of warming, humidifying, and filtering the air.
Heated humidification helps perform these functions, and is proven to help patients become more comfortable with sleep therapy and improve CPAP compliance.
If you do not have heated humidification on your machine and would like to find out if this could make you more comfortable with your sleep therapy, ask your CPAP specialist for more information.
