I just took the last of the miserable cats to the vet to have their minds changed. So they can't be the parents.... Not sure if the Vet used a hammer or just what.......... But the cats are certainly being well behaved right now.

Any backup is a waste of money .... until you need it. I get backup and location redundancy. Taking council from long term apnea practitioners suggest that both backup, and location redundancy are really good reasons for spending a little extra money. For me the investment is worth it.

I know where you're coming from wrt AutoSet because the push is very strong in the apnea forums. Sometimes I think it's overblown. Still, having the option to switch between APAP and CPAP modes is an advantage. How much depends on personal circumstance. For myself I am still undecided.

So you think a car with automatic transmission is more "capable" than a car with manual transmission?

A car with an automatic transmission is capable of changing gears without human intervention. A car with a manual transmission is not capable of changing gears without human intervention. Ergo, the car with the automatic transmission IS more capable than the car with the manual transmission.

I assume you're joking, but the difference is important in CPAP machines.

An auto CPAP is more like an auto transmission car where you can throw a switch and it becomes a manual transmission with a shift lever and clutch. Plus some sort of adjustable parameters on how the auto part works.

An auto CPAP can do everything a manual CPAP can. Change the settings and it IS a manual CPAP. You can do things with a manual transmission that you can't do with an auto transmission.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Wow! How did you get a five year warranty? My S9 AutoSet came with a two year warranty. And while I was researching machines I only saw two year warranties for the S9 AutoSet Elite and AutoSet machines.
