A question of humidity
My original, sleep study suggested, setting is 4. Using the airsence 10 sadistic humidifier. Over the last week and a half i have been reducing the humidity setting because of the high level of very fluid snot it builds up in my sinuses. I'm now at 1 and while the high level of very fluid snot has come down it is still at a moderate level of very fluid snot. A level, by the way, I am very displeased with. My question is, do i really need any humidity? I hate any kind of humidity to begin with but to have the stuff blown up my nose all night is very irritating.

RE: A question of humidity
Only you can answer the question if you need humidity. If you believe the humidity is causing the
"Very fluid snot" issue, then turn the humidity off and try it for a few days to see if your problem clears up.
Glad to see you are sticking with your therapy and trying to make it work.

No, its optional or comfort thing, depend how you look at it, some can and some cannot do without
You've choices:
1- Turn off, but leave some water in the tank so you get some moisture with no heat
2- Turn off, no water in the tank
3- Do as I did, buy a side cover, the side cover replaces the tank and goes in the same hole as the water tank
4- Whatever make your nose happy

RE: A question of humidity
Thanx, will try no humidity for a few.

As for sticking with it, i have no choice. If I want to feed my family I have to use it even if it doesnt help the problem i didnt have
