I purchased a new Resmed S9 auto set outright for $675, it included the humidifier n pillow mask which I don't use, I like the nasal gel mask best. I started out with a 4-10 setting. My Hl started out at 1.5 which I found out was pretty good. Last night after lots of rain out my Hl was 2.8.
The only problem I have is that I get rainout with my heated hose. I keep my room very cold 55-60 degrees in the winter. I even have put a snuggle hose over the heated hose. I use the humidifier set at 80 degrees. I'm about ready to go back to not using the heated hose or the humidifier, because the first night I used it I had no problems. I keep reading that the heated hose stops the rain out so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
I love my APAP over all I feel so much more rested and I don't drink water through the night or make several trips to the bathroom. No dry mouth in the mornings yeah!
Anyway I love the stories, I'm sure I'll keep learning more. I hope one day to be able to understand all the info on the SD card and the information that is produced in the sleepy software.
