Every now and then patients encounter a number of side effects when using CPAP therapy, such as nasal congestion, irritation, dryness, sore throat and others as well. Using a humidifier is one means to counteract and deal with such side effects. Using a heated tube - such as the ThermoSmart - has advantages over standard tubing and can help further reduce these negative effects. This heated tube will warm and moisturize the air you receive throughout therapy and help ensure that your air passages are kept healthy.
The ThermoSmart heated tubing works with all machines from the SleepStyle 600 series by Fisher & Paykel such as the SleepStyle 608 CPAP Machine with Heated Humidifier. Patients should note that this tubing will not work with other machines either by F&P or different manufacturers (i.e. Respironics, ResMed, DeVilbiss, etc.).
