Without humidifier
Without humidifier
I'm trying to learn to use my resmed 9 without the humidifier. Things started out okay but then I realized the pressure was running up after an hour or so and waking my up with too much air pressure
This is really odd since I have it set on auto to run in a range of 6-12.
Can anyone explain what I might be doing wrong

I tried by plugging directly into the machine and ditching the humidifier box or going through the humidifier box without the liquid insert container and had a similar effect

Very confused?

RE: Without humidifier
Removing the humidifier half would have no effect on the pressure coming out.

It is possible that without the moist air, you feel it is a lot more than it is.

Unless you are saying you looked at the screen and saw the pressure was higher than 12.

Take a deep breath and count to zen.

RE: Without humidifier
The S9 usually has a good reason for running the pressure up but it cannot exceed the maximum limit you impose on it.
If it is malfunctioning I am pretty sure you would have no doubts about it right now since the pressure fluctuations would be driving you nuts.
I would get a copy of SleepyHead and start looking at leak numbers there.
I suspect that the pressure is going up to compensate for your mouth dropping open.
(it happens!)
There may be a full face mask in your future.

When in doubt check it out.
