Humidification is an important part of CPAP/BiPAP therapy. It is based on a number of factors including the climate of the region where the user resides, the temperature in the room and also has a lot of seasonal variance. The air which we normally breathe gets moistened and warmed from our nasal mucosa before it reaches the lungs. A user on CPAP/ BiPAP therapy has air pushed at high pressure into the air passage which does not allow for time for air to be humidified or warmed. These days humidifiers are heated, wherein the temperature can be adjusted as per requirement. One must put distilled water inside a humidifier and refilling of water has to be done daily. Using a humidifier provides relief from dryness, sore throat or discomfort from cold air. We have wide range of best home small humidifier, whole house humidifier and cool mist humidifier
