Heated Humidifier for the APEX XT Travel CPAP Line
With six different levels of humidification, this heated humidifier is a comfort add on for the APEX XT Travel CPAP line. Compatible with all four different versions of the XT CPAP line, the heated humidifier has a 450 milliliter water chamber that will last at least eight hours providing comfort and helping your CPAP therapy in the most extreme conditions without sacrificing the performance that you have been accustomed to receiving.
The water chamber holds up to 450 milliliters of water, allowing for at least eight hours of continuous use, and will continue to run even if there is no water in the chamber. If you water chamber has no water left, the humidifier will continue to perform until the heat sensor notices that the machine is too hot and will turn off the humidification until it cools down without causing any damage to the humidifier or chamber.
Six Adjustment Levels
Allows for the user to change to their preferred level of humidification providing multiple options. As the weather changes you may find that you need a different level of humidification to provide consistent comfort, especially as the weather cools down or heats up.
Humidification can help eliminate rainout and excess moisture in your tube and mask area, resulting in less dry mouth and dry nasal area after CPAP therapy. Heated humidifiers are a bonus comfort option that can better your CPAP therapy.
Easy to Clean
The XT Heated Humidifier comes with an extraction tool that separates the chamber from the humidifier, allowing for easy maintenance and a quick refill of your chamber.

While water chambers will take normal tap water and your humidifier will work and provide comfort, over time tap water can cause calcium and other minerals to build up in the chamber. Distilled water will prevent the calcium build up in your chamber and extend the life span of your water chamber while also having a positive effect on your CPAP therapy.

If I fill my water chamber all the way how many hours can I expect to receive during CPAP therapy?
Your chamber can hold up to 450 milliliters of water, and if you fill it all the way you can expect at least eight hours of humidification throughout the night. Ambient temperatures should not have an effect on the length of time as the XT Humidifier has been tested in extreme conditions so that you can sleep comfortably without having to worry.
Is the water chamber dishwasher safe?
The chamber is made out of a material that can be used in the dishwasher, but it is not recommended. There is a silicone seal in the middle of the chamber that can be damaged by frequent use in the dishwasher, so it is recommended that you wash your chamber with warm water and a mild detergent.
How often should I be cleaning the chamber and replacing the water?
Daily! While distilled water will help prevent calcium build up, it is still recommended that you change the water every day for best results, and to make sure you scrub and clean your chamber daily.
