Change Pressure Settings on Remstar Plus

Postby TheTxn on Mon Sep 22, 2008 7:08 pm

I have two RemStar Plus CPAP machines, but my insurance company doesn't know about the second machine. I just found out I need to change my pressure setting from 10 to 12, but I don't know how to change my second machine that I use for travel. Can anyone help me with this?

WHICH REMstar Plus? There are several versions.

The newest is the M Series:

The Legacy series with NO C-Flex (3-buttons).

The Legacy series WITH C-Flex (5 buttons) (looks similar to this Pro 2)

There are slightly different button-pressing sequences to each one.

Then you need these instructions.
I'd suggest copying them to a file on your computer. :)

REMstar Plus wo/C-Flex Setup

IMPORTANT!
When the device is in the Therapy Setup Menu, the humidifier and ramp buttons operate as up and down keys to change the settings and the pressure on/off button will take you to the next screen.

Therapy Setup Menu
1. Plug the pronged end of the power cord into an electrical outlet. To enter the Therapy Setup Menu hold the ramp and pressure on/off buttons down while plugging the power cord into the device. The airflow will automatically turn ON and the display screen will show the current elevation setting and the unlock symbol.

IMPORTANT!
Prescribed therapy settings can be set only using the Therapy Setup Menu.
To prevent patients from tampering with the settings, the directions to access the Therapy Setup Menu should not be revealed to the patient.

Elevation Setting
a. The elevation setting and symbol will be displayed.
The patient also has access to this setting in the Patient Setup Menu.
Lo = less than 2,500 ft. (<762 m.)
M = 2,500 to 5,000 ft. (762 m. to 1524 m.)
Hi = 5,000 to 7,500 ft. (1525 m. to 2286 m.)

Note: Altitudes of 7,500 ft. (2,286 m.) may affect the accuracy of the pressure. Verify the pressure settings with a water column manometer.

To change the elevation setting, press and release the ramp or humidifier button until the correct setting is displayed.
Press and release the pressure on/off button to go to the next setting.

Pressure Setting
b. The CPAP pressure setting will appear.
To change the setting, press and release the ramp or humidifier button.
Range: 4 to 20 cm H2O (in 1 cm. H2O increments)
Press and release the pressure on/off button to go to the next setting.

Fine Adjustment Setting
c. The CPAP fine adjustment setting will appear. This setting allows you to calibrate the device so that the pressure setting can be verified with a manometer.

If you DO NOT want to calibrate the device, press and release the pressure on/off button to go to the next setting.

If you DO want to calibrate the device, follow the directions below:
1. Connect the patient circuit to the REMstar Plus. Make sure there is an exhalation leak in the circuit.

2. Zero the manometer and connect the manometer at the patient mask. Make sure the pressure has stabilized (let the manometer sit for at least 60 seconds).

3. If the pressure setting is not the same as the manometer reading, press and release the ramp or humidifier button to change the setting.
Range: -0.9 to 0.9 H2O (in 0.1 cm H2O increments)
Press and release the pressure on/off buton to go to the next setting.

Ramp Time Setting
d. The Ramp Time symbol and setting will appear. The patient also has access to this setting in the Patient Setup Menu.
To change the setting, press and release the ramp or humidifier button.
Range: 0 to 45 minutes (in 5 minute increments)
Press and release the pressure on/off button to go to the next setting.
Note: If the ramp time is set to "0" minutes, or if the CPAP pressure setting is 4 cm. H2O, the following ramp setting will not be displayed. Go to Step f.

Ramp Starting Pressure Setting
e. The Ramp Starting Pressure symbol and setting will appear. To change the setting, press and release the ramp or humidifier button.
Range: 4 to Prescription Setting (in 1 cm. H2O increments)
Press and release the pressure on/off button to go to the next setting.

>4 Setting
f. The number of times this device has been used for more than four consecutive hours (>4) will appear. To erase the total and go back to zero, press and release the ramp or humidifier button.
An "X" will appear in the upper left corner and the total will change to "0000". (Pressing the button again will restore the original count)
Press and release the pressure on/off button to go to the next setting.

LED Setting
g. The LED on/off symbol and setting will appear. This setting allows you to have the lights behind the button turned on or off.
The patient also has access to this setting in the Patient Setup Menu.
1 = ON
0 = OFF
To change the setting, press and release the ramp or humidifier button.

Exit Settings
h. To go back to the beginning of the settings, press and release the pressure on/off button.

To exit the Therapy Setup Menu, hold the pressure on/off button down and press the ramp button one time. Release the on/off button. The airflow will turn off.

I have a REMstar Auto M Series device with Cflex. I would be extremely grateful if you could provide me with the same instructions for change of pressure settings on that model. My problem is that I am a rancher in deep South Texas, and my DME provider is a Home Health Agency lined up, sight unseen, by the sleep center in San Antonio. Unfortunately the Visiting LVN is less than qualified to do what she is attempting.

I can't tell all of you how delighted I was to find this Web Site. Y'all steered me to the encore software, and I have learned more about what is going on with my therapy in two weeks than I ever would have learned from the resources that are available down here.

Best regards,

Gringo Viejo

Den,

Thank you very much for the information. I tried to PM my thanks yesterday, but I think that I may have messed it up, not being familiar with the cpaptalk template.

Best regards,

Gringo Viejo

I be grateful if you posted the direction to change the pressure on a REMstar Pro 2 C-Flex CPAP, REMstar Heated Humidifier - the one with 5 buttons that you posted above. I need to change the pressure setting to 12. Thanks.

It's near the bottom of this page. For some reason, the forum isn't letting me post the text in THIS thread.
