For your information there are 4-AirSense 10 models, CPAP, Elite, AutoSet, and AutoSet for Her.  The Autoset or Autoset for Her are the models you would want.

FWIW, the machine you linked to on FB Marketplace was an Autoset, and is the recommended model.

RE: 3 Months Until Sleep Study
Thank you SR.

Update on sleep study. I called the VA sleep lab to verify my sleep study as my primary doctor said he'd put me in for one and told me the wait time is approximately 3 months. The lab said that they are currently not doing in lab testing right now due to covid and they have a long waitlist at that. They recommended a home sleep study. As I stated in my initial post, I tried a home study a couple of years back and had a bad experience with it. The lab told me that this test is different. I ended up doing it. They are providing home testing with a device called a WatchPAT ONE. I liked it because there were no tubes in my nose. Are these tests fairly accurate? I did the test Wednesday night. I am going to call on Monday to make sure the results were uploaded correctly.

Thanks Smile

RE: 3 Months Until Sleep Study
I've never used a home sleep study, but it appears they can be fairly accurate. It's within acceptable accuracy for common obstructive apnea, I'm not certain however on the accuracy of Central Apnea. I have quite heavy CA (and COPD), so I'd think a home study would be more inaccurate for me than others likely including yourself.
