Also, they say that the "tank" is dishwasher safe on the top shelf. Great, but it fills with water no matter how it is placed. Is this tank supposed to come apart? I do not want to force it at the seam and break it. Even when I wash by hand it is impossible to dry!
"dishwasher safe" does not mean that the dishwasher will clean it well...
Short of breaking it, the tank does not come apart.
Everything I post on this board is nothing more than an opinion expressed by an apneak. Normally, it's based on facts and experience but sometimes, I may get things wrong or not have all the facts.
I reserve the right to change my mind. Why? Because tomorrow I may know better.
I'm still in need of BiPAP data for Sleepyhead, so I think the contributions we got from the forum helped put us over the top for most of the parsing that needed to be done on the Auto and CPAP Dreamstation. I'll post if there is a need for more data. We had four good data sets submitted, with one up to 6-months.
We're covering a lot of ground here. Zeeez is correct that he needs a higher minimum pressure. With a 90% pressure at 8.0, 6.5 - 7.0 should help quite a bit to reduce the hypopnea. Overall, your results are very good.
I don't put humidifier parts in the dishwasher. A good rinse is fine. I use a sanitizer made for commercial kitchens and breweries called Star San. It only takes 2 cc to make a quart of solution which I keep in a spray bottle. This is an odorless, tasteless acid sanitizer that prevents microbial development on surfaces like the humidifier tank and hose. It even helps keep mineral deposits in control. Spray and drip-dry.
