Respironics System One Humidifier Settings
Hello fellow board members. I am new to this board and just started treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.

I was titrated using a Resmed S9 Autoset with H5i Humidifier with no heated tubing with humidity set at 3.5. I liked the humidity and temperature of the air at that setting.

Now I have bought my Remstar Pro C-Flex+ with System One humifier and heated tubing.

I have a question about the humidity settings (the manual is not very clear about which options do what).

My provider had set the tube heating in the setup menu to "on" and no matter what I would dial the humidity wheel to, the air was too warm for my comfort.

I just turned it to "off" and I noticed that the setup menu now shows "System One Humidification" set to "on". From what I understand this setting will automatically adjust the humidity based on room humidity level (measured by a sensor on the heated tube) and the dial wheel setting.

I would appreciate any information that explains more clearly how the humidifier menu settings work and what the real life effect of each setting is.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome Krusher! Did you check the manufacturer's website to see how the humidifier is supposed to work?

Please take the Board's original survey at: http://www.apneaboard.net/polls/index.ph...16&lang=en

Yes. They have a lot of marketing info but nothing that clearly explains the menu options.

You can also get the clinical manual which is available via email (scroll down to section three) provide more information than the manual come with machine http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual

Take what you read with pinch of salt and evaluate on your own, don't take it for being the truth or correct

The dial determines the heated tube setting. To set the humidity you need to use the settings menu.

RE: Respironics System One Humidifier Settings
Help! I have a Philips-Respironics PR System One Series Machine. Each night I dutifully fill the water chamber for the humidifier, and each morning, the chamber is still full--the humidifier is not working! I have checked both the regular and clinician settings, and everything *seems* to be turned on correctly (humidifier set to 5, etc.). I just got it back from the repair center, and after paying $90, it STILL doesn't work? Can anyone tell me what might be wrong?
