Airsense 10 Humidifier Settings?
I am wondering what you set your humidifier and heated hose to?
I have the tube temp at 26 and the humidity at 6.

I don't think 1 tank of water would get me through the night.

RE: Airsense 10 Humidifier Settings?
Hi player
I use either the default settings, 27 and 4 or Auto, the tank about 3/4 full in the morning, even on cold nights
My machine is one of the early models, when on Auto, temp set from the factory and cannot be changed
On later models of the A10, temp can be set by the patient when on "Auto"
Higher settings and large leaks can use more water

Hello Player. When I had the Airsense I used winter settings of 27 degrees and humidity 8 (and a heated hose). Never ran out of water even on the occasional nights of 9+ hours of sleep.

However, for new ASV hoseheads, my current Resmed ASV nearly runs out of water most nights, despite being filled to the max. I assume because it is a 'busy little bee'...

RE: Airsense 10 Humidifier Settings?
I use "auto" for both temp and humidity on my A10 Autoset with a Climateline hose. This has worked very well for me. In the winter I fill the tank to "max" and usually use almost all of the water in 7 hrs or so; in the summer I only need 1/2 of a tank usually.
