More humidity. More comfort.
ThermoSmart Technology is at the forefront of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s humidification philosophy and is available in the 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. With its unique heated breathing tube, ThermoSmart Technology 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.
Tube cooling: Condensate forms
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, resulting in dryness and discomfort.
Warm tube: Heat loss + heat gain from heated breathing tube = constant heat + reduced rain-out
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 to provide a more natural CPAP experience. All of this with virtually no condensation.*
