So, just checked my machine. Been checking the csv file and such. Been experiencing brain fog and lately very tired, heavy eyes etc. Just noticed, my humidifier has been off for quite a while. Never really noticed my water lever in the reservoir, just dumped it every morning not thinking.
My humidifier goes from 1 to 6 (weinman somnobalance). My question, what effect does the humidifier have on osa/csa events?
Does it help to have the humidifier on a high or low number. I believe I set it to 1 as when I first had the machine in the winter, I was getting a lot of mask rain from moisture in the breathing tube.
Any opinions on this?
Humidification? No therapeutic impact. Luxury comfort option. If nose is not drying out and cracking open, may not need it any how.
The humidifier is only there as a "comfort" item. It helps, when needed, to keep your mouth, nose, etc. moist. If you dry out at night, you will probably wake up with a dry nose, mouth, or a sore throat.
Personally, I turn off my humidifier during the summer months since the humidity in my house stays around 50% all summer. In the winter, the house humidity can drop down to around 30-40%, so I turn it on. If I lived in either a dryer, or colder, area then I may want to use the humidifier full time. Since I do not, I can leave it off, and in fact, I remove it completely for most of the year.
