Mask resistance with an HME installed
Mask resistance with an HME installed
Hi all.  My Dreamstation Go has a setting for mask type, where its supposed to be for mask "resistance" or something.  Not very clear what it is.  Well, I was wondering if I should be messing around with this setting when using an HME inline with my ff mask.  Reason for that is when I install the HME, I notice that its harder to breath in... I mean, I can feel the pressure start dropping in the mask, as though the air isn't flowing through the HME fast enough.  Should I increase the setting , ie, x4-x5 or something?  Cos both my dreamwear ffm and nasal say to set at x1, and x0 if I use a non phillips mask, so I have no idea what the higher settings are for.

Are there masks out there that are really restrictive?

Is that really what that mask type setting is for?

Sorry, so many questions...
