What Problems Can Occur If You Utilize CPAP Therapy without a Humidifier?

The increased airflow provided by CPAP machines can irritate nasal passages in addition to making them lose some of their moisture. This type of situation can make it uncomfortable for you to continue your sleep therapy. If the irritation isn’t resolved, you might experience one or more of the following issues:

  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Sneezing
  • Excess mucous
  • Congestion
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Infection

Dry Mouth and Irritation Resolved

Humidifiers add moisture to the air that flows through the tubing and into your nasal passages and mouth, depending on the style of mask that you use, making it more comfortable for you to breathe. As the irritation diminishes, dry mouth becomes a problem of the past.

How Does It Work?

Your CPAP machine sends air into the humidifier. The air picks up moisture as it passes over water contained in a special chamber of the humidifier. This moistened air supply is sent through the tube, into the CPAP mask, and into the nasal passages of the individual using it.

How Many Types of CPAP Humidifiers Are There?

A variety of humidifiers are sold for use with CPAP machines. The primary styles include:

  • Built-in humidifiers
  • Heated humidifiers
  • Passover humidifiers
  • Integrated humidifiers
  • built-in model is part of the CPAP machine. It cannot be removed, although its water chamber can be taken off for cleaning purposes.

A heated humidifier is larger than an integrated model but smaller than the passover style. It is designed to heat the water before it adds moisture to the air that you will breathe.

A passover model is designed with a water chamber and specialized hose. It is connected to the CPAP machine so that it can add moisture to the air.

An integrated humidifier has a compact design and is styled to fit directly onto your CPAP machine. It makes use of the existing hose and power cord for your equipment.
