No warm air PRS1
Hi every one, I'm new to this and happy to be here but I have a question.

I have a System One Heated Humidifier and full mask, and I'm having problems with getting the humidifier to heat up. It still has some what warm air coming out but not hot enough. I still wake up with dry nasal passages. I followed the direction but still the hose gets a little warm but no warm air coming through. What am I doing wrong?

RE: No warm air
Hi Q-Rock
Whats model number of your machine 450 or 460. 460 comes with the heated hose option
Model number written on the label at the bottom of the machine (remove the water tank before looking)

I don,t use the machine, the clinical manual may helps. available via email (section three)

Q-Rock, I updated your subject line so it can get the attention of the folks who have the answers.

I don't have that model but it has been my experience that even with the heated hose, the air is not necessarily warm. Some say they notice a difference but I never have.

What number do you have your humidifier set to?

There's a "System One Humidification" setting that makes it do "smart" humidification to conserve water. Some people find they need to turn the "system one humidification" setting to off in the clinician's menu in order to get more humidity.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

We are talking humidification, not boiling water here. You really won't feel any heat coming off your humidifier or hose, if your humidifier's hot plate is warm, your getting humidification. It's not like one of those nasal steamers or standing in a hot shower, its slight heat that provides a small amount of humidification.

Ok, well this is not working because I'm still waking up with dried out nasal passages.

RE: No warm air PRS1
Q-Rock,

Before we can provide you with any real help, we need to know the model number. Is your machine a 450 model or a 460 model?

We also need to know: What's your current humidity setting? Are you using "Classic Mode" or the regular "smart" mode?

If your machine is a 460 model, then getting the optional heated hose (along with the humidifier adaption kit) will let you set the temperature in the hose to be much, much warmer than the room's air temperature. And with the max humidity setting with the heated hose, the relative humidity in the hose will be kept at 90%.

But if your machine is a 450 model, then there is not a heated hose option. You can still use a heated hose, but it has to be a stand-alone hose such as the Aussie Hose or the Hybernite Rainout Control System Hose.
