Hi all Im back and trying this again Gave up on my useless 'insurance' and just bought what I needed myself

Already have Resmed Airsense 10 Bought a heated hose (which I still have rainout), Nuance Pro, and filters.

Issues as of first use; getting rainout, nose a lil' red, and when I blew my nose I had a small bit of blood.

Screenshot of logs and settings;

Looking for thoughts on this and how to fix issues. No idea how well or bad I did.

TIA!

For rain out, the 2 things you can do are turn your heated tube temp up and turn your humidifier down. There is a limit to how much moisture the air will hold, so will have to turn your humidifier down until the rain out stops. Before you do that, turning your heated tube up should help prevent the rain out.

I noticed you have a minimum pressure of 10 cmH2O. That it a a little high for most people, so I was wondering if there is a reason it's set so high? If you're comfortable with it then it really doesn't matter. Also, you have EPR on 3. Is there a reason for this? If you feel OK with it off, then I'd leave it off unless there is a reason you have it on. It can cause problems (see a previous post of mine about EPR for details).

To ease the rain out, loop your tube up high; such as over a bed post and if you don't have a bed post, figure out how to hang it so it goes up before going down to your mask.

From the screenshots, it looks like your AHI is good at 1.34. The goal is usually to get AHI to under 5. Water in the tube can depend on a number of factors like temperature of the room, humidifier and heated tube settings, and humidity in the room. Sleeptech and wiredgeorge provided some good ideas to try.
