What is the name on the machine? Is a ResMed or Phillips Respironics.
Look on the machine for a complete name and model.
Even though it's a loaner, there should be a built in humidifier with it. And no, these machines with humidifier do not create steam.
You are thinking of a room Humidifier that would create steam.
