CPAP Humidifier and Parts
Fisher and Paykel was the first to introduce heated humidifier because it is important to receive delivered appropriate air conditions. Heated humidifiers use a heated plate and water chamber to increase patient comfort by eliminating the dryness of the compressed air. The temperature can usually be adjusted or turned off to act as a passive humidifier if desired. In general, a heated humidifier is integrated into the unit and detachable. In particular, Fisher & Paykel Icon machines and ResMed new Airsense/AirCurve 10 machines have built-in humidifier for patients who prefer compact CPAP machines.
