Here's another question for you. Hope someone can help.
Again. on page 10 of the users manual, it has a drop down list of all the items that can be adjusted. The 4th one from the top of the TEXT List is SYSTEM ONE Humidification but does not appear on my machine at all. I checked the clinicians set-up menu as well. Does anyone know if is possibly for earlier models and because mine has the humidifier and heater hose with automatic humidification it may not require it?
I've tried attaching a copy of page 10 but can't seem to do so.
The purpose of the heated hose is to prevent condensation in the hose and to heat the air.
Sometimes, especially when the air in the bedroom is cold and the humidifier is on a high setting, the condensation in the hose can trickle down and go into your nose. We call this rain out, and the heated hose prevents it.
Some people, myself included, really benefit from the humidified air. My sinuses don't get dried out and I don't need to use sprays and sinus rinses as much when my allergies bother me or when I catch a cold.
