Humidifier bottles for oxygen


Humidifier bottles are medical devices that increase the humidity in your oxygen while using supplemental oxygen. These devices look like water bottles and have a special cap with a wing nut on top used for attaching the humidifier to an oxygen concentrator.

Do you need a humidifier while on oxygen?

Before you learn how to connect a humidifier to your oxygen concentrator, you will want to determine whether or not you need humidified oxygen. Patient needs vary; a humidifier is not always necessary for those undergoing oxygen therapy.



You may want to consider a humidifier if:

You live in a dry or cold climate.

  • You use an oxygen concentrator while you sleep.
  • You consistently experience dry nasal passages or have a dry throat or mouth during oxygen therapy treatments.
  • Your doctor prescribes humidification during oxygen therapy treatments

How to hook up a humidifier to an oxygen concentrator in 6 steps

So, how do you put a humidifier bottle in an oxygen concentrator? The process is simple.

  • Step 1: Fill the humidifier bottle with distilled water to the fill line. Be sure to keep the water level in between the minimum and maximum fill levels.
  • Step 2: Reattach the cap of the bottle. Be careful not to cross-thread the cap and the humidifier bottle, as this can cause leaks.
  • Step 3: Strap the bottle onto the concentrator.
  • Step 4: Attach the humidifier adapter tubing or the oxygen outlet to the wing nut located on the top of the bottle.
  • Step 5: Attach the free end of the oxygen tubing to the oxygen outlet port on the concentrator.
  • Step 6: Attach nasal cannula tubing to the humidifier bottle outlet. Turn the concentrator on and ensure all the connections are tight to ensure that you’re receiving the right levels of humidified oxygen for your treatment.
