Hi I had another question about the heated tubing and the warming control, I live in a very dry area,and i am not sure my machine is even heating up.And also what is a good humidity for the hose in a dry climate?
I cannot seem to figure how to preheat....I am still confused on this machine.Also it says in the manual one can adjust the heating process I dont seem to be able to get this.
can anyone help?
I saw the sleep dr and he wont lower the pressure of 14 -he says might collapse the airway.I am sooo tired still.I have lost 25 lbs in a month form being ill but its the c-pap thats driving me nuts.I am thinking of paying the 800$ for a sleep study but dr says my apnea is under control.I dont know anymore,I get discouraged and i have been on this since march2012.sometimes I could just cry its so frustrating.you all have been helpful and i am apreciative but I still cant figure the thing out.
The humidity is not a standard thing. Each person and location is different.
If it is very dry, turn the humdifier temp or number all the way up for one night. Fill the tank to its max. If you still have water in the tank the next morning, turn it down a bit and try it for several nights.
If your bedroom is warm, you may not need the climateline. It's job is to prevent condensation by keeping the hose warm.
As for the pre-warm, put the home screen on the screen for the humdity. Then tap the knob button. In the clinician manual, this is discussed on page 14 and 15 of the document (or page 18 and 19 according to the viewing program).
