System Overview
The DreamStation Heated Humidifier attaches to the therapy device and provides an air outlet port to connect a breathing circuit.
The breathing circuit is comprised of patient tubing, a mask, and in some instances a separate exhalation device. The patient
tubing can be Respironics heated tubing, 22 mm (non-heated) performance tubing or 15 mm (non-heated) performance tubing.
For information related to the mask to be used, including any need for a separate exhalation device, consult the instructions
for use that accompany both the mask and therapy device.
The DreamStation Heated Humidifier with Heated Tubing is designed to deliver humidification to provide added comfort
during therapy. This humidification level is controlled through the output of the heated humidifier as well as the temperature
of the optional heated tubing. Use of these two accessories allows for a comfortable level of humidity to be maintained at
the mask.
The DreamStation Heated Humidifier is comprised of the following components:
• Heated Humidifier - The heated humidifier is the primary source of humidification. Humidification is controlled by adjusting
the temperature of the heater plate. The heater plate is then used to heat water found in the water tank. This manual includes
instructions that explain how to set up and take care of the heated humidifier. For instructions on how to adjust the heated
humidifier settings, refer to the instructions for use that accompanied the therapy device.
• Water Tank - The water tank stores the water that will be used by the heated humidifier. This manual includes instructions that
cover how to use and take care of the water tank.
• Heated Tubing - The heated tubing is an optional accessory that is used, along with the heated humidifier, to control the
provided humidification. This is accomplished by controlling the temperature of the air in order to ensure that it does not cool
down prior to reaching the mask. This manual includes instructions that cover how to connect and take care of the heated
tubing. For instructions on how to adjust the temperature of the heated tubing, refer to the instructions for use that
accompanied the therapy device.

!14
Problem
Why it Happened
I’m having difficulty
adjusting the heated
humidifier setting or the
heated tube
temperature setting.
The blower is not
turned on, or the
humidifier or heated
tube is not fully
connected.
The water in the
water chamber runs
out before morning.
Water chamber was
not full at start of
session. Mask leak
is excessively high.
The ambient
conditions are very
dry/ cool.
I hear a leak or
whistling sound coming
from my therapy device
or humidifier (not
related to mask leak).
The therapy device
air inlet may be
obstructed. The
humidifier or tube is
not fully connected.
The humidifier seals
are not fully seated or
The water chamber
has been filled
beyond the
maximum fill line.
I accidentally spilled water
into my humidifier basin.
What to Do
The humidifier setting and tube temperature settings can
only be adjusted from the Therapy ON display screen on
the therapy
device. Confirm that the blower is turned on, and that the
settings are visible on the right side of the screen, then adjust
to desired comfort. If the blower is on but the humidifier
settings are not displayed on the Therapy ON screen, then
unplug the device.
Confirm that the humidifier and/or heated tube electrical
contacts are not obstructed or damaged. Then reconnect the
humidifier and/ or heated tube, and reconnect the device’s
power supply. Turn the blower on; if the settings are still not
Under most conditions, a full water chamber should last for a
typical sleep session. However, many factors impact water
consumption, including: the ambient temperature and
humidity in your bedroom, your humidifier or heated tube
settings, the level of mask leak, and the duration of your sleep
session.
First, make sure that the water chamber is filled to the maximum
fill line at the start of your sleep session. Check that your mask is
fitted properly, and adjust as needed to reduce mask leak to
normal levels.
You may use the Check Mask Fit function to evaluate your
mask fit. Also, confirm that the device, humidifier, humidifier
seals and tube are connected properly and not leaking. You
may also choose to lower your humidifier and/or heated tube
settings or change the
Check therapy device air inlet is not obstructed, and filters are
clean and properly inserted. Confirm that the device,
humidifier, and tube are connected properly and not leaking.
Confirm that the humidifier lid seal and dry box seal are
present and properly seated; if needed, gently press around
the perimeter of the seals to reseat them.
A small amount of water spilled in the basin of the humidifier
will not harm your device. A small spill in the humidifier will
evaporate under normal humidifier use. However, too much
water in the humidifier basin could spill over the humidifier
lid hinge and might damage your furniture.
Disconnect power from the device. Remove the water
chamber, pour out any excess water until the water level is at
or below the maximum fill line and set the chamber aside.
Separate the humidifier from the therapy device, and pour out
the spilled water. Once
the heater plate has cooled, wipe the inside of the humidifier
with a paper towel or soft cloth. If needed, dry the underside
of the humidifier and confirm that your table top is dry.
Reconnect the humidifier and power supply, and reinstall
