I don't know anything about VPAPs except what I read, but from what I read, it seems that the Adapt would be the best choice as that would cover OSA as well as CSA. It would also do everything that the Auto does so you are covered there as well. Just my thoughts on the subject for what its worth.
I was reading about the Resmed S9 VPAP Adapt and it will treat OSA and CSA/CSR. I don't know or I didn't see where there is an Auto with this machine. The problem that you may run into is that you are going to have to get a script for this machine and even if you are paying out of pocket for this machine, I don't know if a doc will write a script for this machine if you have not been diagnosed with CSR or CSA. I would want to get the best machine I could too if I had to pay out of pocket, even if I only had to pay copays. Resmed has some good links with info on this machine.
