Water in your CPAP Tubing?

Condensation

Are you finding water droplets in or around your CPAP tubing? This is also known as rainout.

Rainout happens when the air the room is colder than the air passing through your CPAP unit to your mask. Condensation builds and so creates water in your tubing, which can create a gurgling sound. This can interfere with both your sleep and your therapy.

In the humid summer months, you generally won’t need the humidity feature on your unit, so feel free to turn it down or off completely.

If this alone won’t work, try tubing insulators. These soft fleece sleeves easily attach around the tubing to keep the air running through to your mask from being affected from room air temperature changes. Heated tubing is another option to reduce rain out. CPAP Sudbury North Bay Tubing Insulator
