How does humidification work on my ResMed AirSense 10?
The heated humidifier on your AirSense 10 Auto CPAP machine works by adding moisture to the air that is delivered through the CPAP therapy. The humidifier is a separate component that can be attached to your CPAP machine.
When you turn on the humidifier, it will heat the water in the chamber to a pre-set temperature. As the air flows through the water chamber, it picks up moisture and becomes warm and humidified. The humidified air then travels through the tubing and into the mask, providing more comfort and reducing the potential for dryness or irritation in your nasal passages.
The AirSense 10 Auto CPAP machine has an integrated humidifier, which means that the humidifier is directly connected to the device and can be controlled from the machine's user interface. You can adjust the humidity level and temperature settings to your preferred comfort level. The humidifier also has a heated tube option that helps to prevent rainout or condensation in the tubing, which can cause discomfort and disruption in your therapy.
Overall, the heated humidifier on your AirSense 10 Auto CPAP machine helps to improve the comfort and effectiveness of your therapy by adding moisture to the air you breathe during sleep.
