Heated Hose now higher AHI
#1
My DME provided me with a resmed climateline heated hose and now my AHI seems to be higher (resmed airsense 10 autoset and p10 pillows). With my regular hose I never had rainout issues but sine my DME offered me the climateline I figured I would take it. I have only had it for 3 days but my AHI previously was between 1-3 and for the past 3 days with the heated hose my AHI is 6-8. I have kept all of my settings the same. I have noticed that I go through a lot more water every night which is no big deal I think just something I noticed. Curious if anyone had similar experience or has any ideas what this is about. Unfortunately I through away my other hose so will have to order another one out of pocket if I can't figure this out.
Thanks!

It's probably a coincidence, but if you want, it is possible to turn off the hose heat and manually control humidity. Since the humidification system does not change pressure, it's hard to figure where the higher AHI comes from...what kind of events?

Thanks. Didn't know I could turn off the heat and manually control humidity - will try that out for tonight. I recently switched from an S9 to the Airsense 10 which doesn't run on my sleepyhead software on my mac. I need to figure out what software will work on my mac and the airsense 10 to look closer.
Thank you!

Do you mean you need to update to the newest version of SleepyHead?

This is the newest version of SleepyHead and I'm pretty sure it works on Mac.
