Air sense 10 Elite vs Autoset.
#11
The Elite is a fine machine, and it sounds like you had a titration study???? and that is what the doc based the pressure of 10 on? If that is the case, the Elite is a great road to take IMO. As you said, if you fail CPAP, ASV is next. APAP is contraindicated in the presence of CA - especially if they are pressure induced.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Thank you, yes, that is what the doctor said.

Is there something I am missing?
Low AHI score is nice but there is more to waking up feeling refreshed than waking up with low AHI score
You could have snore or/and flow limitation events which could have detrimental effects on sleep quality with low AHI score

I believe, only the AutoSet on auto mode with the right settings can provide optimum results because it can deal with all types of respiratory events. As for central events, whenever the AutoSet detect central event, it does not treat it with rise in pressure, rather leave it alone

Of-course, this is only my opinion among many other opinions

Thank you for you reply, I appreciate it. I admit I was focusing on the obvious, the AHI, but you are right there are many other event/conditions and the industry/ResMed has had years to tweet their process.

Well, the good news is that I should probably not mess with the settings too much with out the doctors advice, at least during the compliance testing. So, that will give me more time to research and think about it.

Thanks

My concern about APAP vs CPAP is that my breathing events are not constant through the night. They seem to happen much more when I am dreaming. The AHI number everybody looks at is an average over the whole night. It seems to me that only an APAP can deal with this variation.

My first meeting with the DME is on Monday. In phone conversation the ResMed 10 AutoSet was discussed and I hope, after they have read the titration report, they don't try to stick me with an Elite, even though the Prescription mentions only a single pressure number.

SnOOzeAlarm,
You might want to contact your Doctor. Unless he/she writes a script for an Auto Cpap, or actually writes a "pressure range" on the script, the DME will likely try to give you the lesser machine.

Hopefully, I'm wrong, but I wouldn't accept anything less than a data capable Auto Cpap.
The Elite is data capable, but is a straight pressure Cpap.
