Tubing: ThermoSmart™ Tube
More humidity. More comfort.
ThermoSmart™ Technology is at the forefront of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare's humidification philisophy and is available in the SleepStyle™ 600 and F&P ICON™ series.
ThermoSmart™ Technology includes an advanced humidification algorithm and a heated breathing tube, which both work to provide optimal humidity and reduce condensation.
THE ART OF COMFORT
ThermoSmart™ Technology, with its unique heated breathing tube, mimics the ability of the nose to heat and humidify the air. Patients will experience new levels of sleep comfort as humidity levels remain constant through the night, regardless of ambient temperature change.
The effectiveness of conventional humidification is limited by ambient temperature. As air travels from a conventional humidifier it cools, causing condensation to form in the tube. As a result it fails to deliver optimal humidity levels to the patient.
ThermoSmart™ Technology, with its unique heated breathing tube, delivers higher, customized humidity levels that are maintained through the night, regardless of ambient temperature change. These higher humidity levels help maintain normal airway conditions without the side effect of condensation.
The clinical evidence to support the effectiveness of ThermoSmart™ is clear:
- ThermoSmart™ provides a more comfortable CPAP experience
- ThermoSmart™ improves sleep quality and total sleep time
- ThermoSmart™ lowers nasal airway resistance for 10% lower pressure
- ThermoSmart™ virtually eliminates condensation even in a cool sleeping environment whilst delivering high levels of absolute humidity
- ThermoSmart™ is as effective as a nasal steroid in improving compliance and nasal symptoms
Those who will benefit the most from ThermoSmart™ include:
- Patients over 60
- Patients on medication
- Patients who prefer a cold room
- Patients with pre-existing nasal conditions.
