Why do the AirSense™ 10 and AirCurve™ 10 devices come with the HumidAir™ heated humidifier built-in?

The air delivered during therapy may overwhelm the body’s ability to add heat and moisture, which can lead to a sore, dry throat, nasal congestion, or a runny nose.  Heated humidification has been shown to help minimise the side effects associated with positive airway pressure therapy, and help make it a more comfortable experience.1 Given the positive impact heated humidification can have, ResMed combined the humidifier and the device to make it easier for therapy users to receive these benefits.
