  • Philip's dreamstation pro humidifier

    Hi all.
    Another question from a newbie.
    I'm considering buying a humidifier for my Dreamstation Pro. I wake at night with a totally dry mouth and need to turn off the machine and take a drink. Never had this issue before going on CPAP.
    I cant find any menu regarding the humidifier on the machine. Do they become enabled once the humidifier is fitted or has the clinic got to do this in their setup?
    cheers Neil

      Hi Neilupshall,

      Thank you for your post.

      Using CPAP equipment can cause you to suffer from a dry mouth or nasal passage. A humidifier with your CPAP machine will help with this.

      Here is a link if you are looking to purchase the DreamStation Heated Humidifier then here is a link to the product page - https://www.cpap.co.uk/philips-respi...cpap-gbxh.html

      The humidifier settings will only show up on the CPAP machine once a humidifier is connected, and then you can change the settings accordingly for the humidifier.

        Hi Brog,

        Thank you for your post.

        I would suggest contacting the Sleep Apnoea Trust to see what they can advise about any benefits you are entitled to - https://www.sleep-apnoea-trust.org/

          Thanks Kelly, I guessed the humidifier had to be connected first but needed to clarify.
