"Tube setting" on Aircurve VAuto?
#1
I did try to search, but couldn't quite find the answer.

I just exchanged my Bipap for a different one to see if it solved the humidity mess problem.

When I was copying the settings before I turned the old one in, I saw a section where it was set to "Slimline" and there was a "Standard" and one other choice.  

I use a Climateline heated hose - when you plug this in, does it automatically override the "tube settings"?  Because it is definitely not a slimline hose.

Thanks for any information!

Correct, once the hose is plugged in, the machine locks in ClimateLine Heated Hose.

That's what I thought, but just wanted to check - thanks so much!

I hope by some miracle the humidity on this new machine works a little better.  I even set up a room humidifier and got the humidity near 40, and on the previous one, it still emptied 2 bins in 8 hours and there seemed to be no humidity at all - nose dry and closed down and hard to breathe. Auto never worked, and Manual 7-8 produced pretty much zero humidity to my nose.  Ugh - this machine has 5% more humidity built into it and can't produce 1/10 of what the S9 Auto did......

Well, I'm hoping for a better night tonight - there's always a chance, right?
