Re: Is this pressure too high? Need help with Min/Max

narrowing that range down "narrowing the range" is a fallacy that is propagated by people that don't understand how the machines work. I'm worried that running at 20 will burn out the motor. Don't be. The same motors will happily run at up to 25 all night long with a bilevel machine. I'm also worri...

Re: AirFlow reduction ???

Generally speaking I seem to get a better response from people if I don't call them "fuckwit" or suggest that they are uncaring morons. That usually, in my experience, brings an abrupt end to a discussion. Use whatever words you feel appropriate for people that are doing you a disservice by not *ac...

Re: AirFlow reduction ???

2) So, why can't he just use my OSCAR reports...... because he can't "trust" a consumer software program that has not passed scrutiny of the hospital. (reluctantly, I see his point) His "point" is "go away, you bother me" But, if he wants to be an ass, then get a copy of ResScan™ which is Resmed's ...

Re: AirFlow reduction ???

You still have a much bigger problem than 'are these 'real' hypopneas? You mentioned that earlier, but didn't say what the bigger problem is. Can you tell me now? https://i.imgur.com/34mTIFE.jpg The fact that you have regular waxing and waining breathing patterns implying a CO₂ instability (too muc...

Re: My Replacement Dreamstation ASV is a little Noisier Than Absolute Quiet

(Yes I deliberately hold my breath a few times before falling asleep, to make sure the machine will do as programmed). Why would you doubt it? one that does not disintegrate when exposed to Ozone generating cleaners. Oh, ALL foam disintegrates with exposure to ozone, the old foam just disintegrated...

If that's one of yours, you've got way more problems than trying to figure out if a hypopnea is 'legit' or not.

Re: Distilled Water in Brazil

Hey, everyone! I will be traveling to Brazil (São Paulo and Rio) for about 10 days and will need distilled water for my CPAP. I’ve read that distilled water isn’t readily available in typical supermarkets. Anyone have any experience with acquiring distilled water in Brazil specifically or with a si...

Re: Are central apneas more common at higher pressures?

Are CSA events more common at higher pressures? (Perhaps due to more frequent arousals?) I'm thinking of using an MAD device simultaneously with CPAP. I assume that this would allow me to reduce the pressure, and I'm wondering if the reduced pressure would also mean a decrease in the CSA events tha...

Re: ResMed and Ozone cleaner

Hello everyone, I picked up a barely used, 450 hours,ResMed AirCurve 10 bi-level to use as a back up. The date on the machine is 2017 so I'm guessing it sat unused for most of its life. The humidifier chamber had been modified to work with SoClean and there was SoClean paperwork in the box so I ass...
