Tubing setting for Amara View Full Face mask

Post by lnoland » Tue Aug 17, 2021 8:28 pm

I recently purchased the Amara View Full Face mask and was a little surprised that it connects to the hose with another hose -- there is a short narrow hose which connects to the full-size hose. It is this short hose which connects to the mask. I didn't think anything about it at first, but then I remembered that my Airsense 10 has a setting for the hose size. Given that there are two hoses of different sizes, I'm not sure which size I should choose in the settings. My instinct is to choose the setting for the smaller hose as it is the most obstructive of the two, but I don't know for sure what the setting is about so I'm not sure how to proceed.

Any advice?

You choose the hose setting size for the long hose that goes from the machine to the mask.

A lot of masks have short hoses but we always go by the long hose diameter size...no matter what the diameter of the short hose.

I may have to RISE but I refuse to SHINE.

If you have a heated hose the machine will automatically set the correct hose setting for you.
Manual hose diameter setting is only needed when using non heated hoses.

That is just what I needed. Thank you!
