Climate CTRL - HELP
#1
Being waking up with a very moist face and I have been wondering if I need to adjust the Climate Ctrl

I am using a Resmed machine, full face mask and I am living on Sunshine Coast of queensland Australia, where our current temps have been around 25 Deg at most nights

I have looked at the machine and turned the knob from the home screen and got to Climate Ctrl which is set at 29 deg.

Looking at a printout of the Resmed, it refers to adjusting the humidity level and shows 3.0 and 3.5 in the diagrams.

I am confused by all this and would appreciate some guided direction on how to avoid waking up with the very moist face.

I am sure its to do with the above settings, but not sure what it should be set to

Look forward to your help
Happy sleeping

Hi worthog,
Try turning your humidity back a notch or two and see if that helps.
Hang in there for more suggestions.

turn it down and see if makes any improvements
if you need temp that high, might be trade off
every nose is different. mine set at 27/28C and any lower my nose get stuffed up
try mask liner, mask liner can help absorb some of the moisture
the moisture is not rainout, more likely from your own breath
you can keep a wet flannel by bedside to wipe your face if getting up during the night

have you tried nasal mask with the addition of chinstrap

the humidity level you,re referring is the H5i humidifier using the slimline
here is the climateline guide

If you are seeing a temp vs a number, then you have the climateline attached and it is set to auto. If you only see a number, then the climateline is not attached. If you see both the number and the temp (two different screens), then the climateline is attached and it is set to manual.

It could also be that your own breath is what's fogging up the mask and making your face wet. But that would only hold true if the bedroom is colder than the air from the humidifier.

I can see from left to right
- a thermoter with orange/red up to about half way then red up to the top
- a big blue droplet
- 27 with C under it

Then in another screen under that, there is
- warm up 3 secs

Then you have the settings on Manual.

If you have the clinician manual, page 11 does a decent job of explaining how it all works.

if not mistaken the setting on auto
if on manual the 3 sec warm up will be under humidity level (not under temp) Thinking-about

Isn't the warm up available no matter what it is on?
