Now, I have a newer CPAP (I think it might be the Respironics PR System One REMstar Plus CPAP Machine w/Humidifier or something similar - and it has a heated tubing), and it seems like even after using it a full night there is still a lot more distilled water left in the water chamber in the morning. Could this be because of the heated tubing, or something else? Or is it possible the machine might be broken?
The heated hose only determines the temp of the hose and keeps the air going through the hose a little warmer. It doesn't have anything to do with the water level or the amount of humidity you receive. I believe the settings available for the heated hose on the PR System One is 1 through 5.
The humidifier has its own settings as to how much humidify you want. The settings are 1 through 3.
Note, if you are not using a heated hose, then you can use System One or Classic settings on the PR machine.
