A Question of Exhale Pressure Relief
(09-07-2016, 11:58 PM)stephennic Wrote: Just my personal experience: I found flex settings on the dreamstation more comfortable than the resmed (A 10 and the her setting) especially using Aflex. I found a smoother transition between inhale and exhale as well as the exhale I felt my breath wasn't pushed back at me especially at higher settings (8 cm +). In the end that is one of the reasons why I purchased the dreamstation over the airsense 10. I bought a dreamstation yesterday after nearly 3 months in trying out various machines.
I was just browsing through some of these replies and noticed this one and I have to agree 100 percent. When I tell people why I purchased the Dreamstation over the Resmed it was definitely one of the main reasons why I selected the Dreamstation. It is the second time I have turned down the Resmed for the Philips product. The last time was about 5 years ago when I purchased the Respironics System One for exactly the same reason. I felt there was a lot less resistance on exhale on the Philips product compared to the Resmed on the highest programmable pressure relief on exhalation. I always take both products home and try them to make sure I am completely comfortable.
