Fisher & Paykel HC150 Heated Humidifier Overview


When air is pumped into air passageways by a CPAP system, these passageways can easily become dried out. This can cause CPAP users discomfort, make it difficult for them to sleep, and may even prevent them from continuing CPAP treatment. The Fisher & Paykel HC150 Heated Humidification System supplies a solution. This item works in tandem with a CPAP Machine to provide heated moisture directly to air passageways as the CPAP is being used to help prevent dryness, congestion, bloody noses, discomfort, and more. This new and improved version of the Fisher & Paykel HC150 Humidifier not only provides continuous humidity, it features smart ambient tracking that senses the surrounding room's temperature and adjusts the heater plate's temperature accordingly. This prevents condensation and maximizes humidity for superior performance.

This Respiratory Therapy Device has a sleek and intuitive design that makes set-up and use a straightforward process. Its small footprint also makes it easy to fit almost anywhere, including on low bedside tables. Finally, this product is AC/DC inverter compatible. Try the Fisher & Paykel HC150 Heated Humidifier today for a more comfortable CPAP experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the side effects of using a CPAP machine?
Side effects can include claustrophobia, skin irritation, dry mouth, a dry or congested nasal passage, nosebleed, lung discomfort, sleep discomfort, accidental air swallowing, etc. A heated humidifier can help users with several of these side effects.

Is a humidifier necessary on a CPAP?
Patients often find heated humidification to be necessary for comfortable sleep and effective PAP device use. This is because heated humidification makes breathing easier and more comfortable by moisturizing the nasal passageway and throat and helping prevent the accumulation of mucus. This is particularly true of users who take two or more medications, users over 60, users who have had UPPP surgery, and users with chronic mucosal disease.

What temperature should I set my CPAP humidifier?
Low to high temperatures are indicated on this machine by the numbers 1 - 4. Users should choose the temperature level indicated by a doctor if special instruction has been given. If no special instruction has been given, level 3 is likely the best option.
