BiFlex or Not?
#1
Now that I'm back from my UK trip I'm going to purchase a back up machine. As I'm interested to see if BiPAP can resolve my RERA issues and also help my breathing patterns my next machine will be a Respironics. The machine I'm looking at is the DS760. I notice this has something called BiFlex which I'm assuming is similar to the AFlex on my current machine. As I will be setting an EPAP level on a BiPAP machine, I'm not sure how lowering the exhalation pressure even further using BiFlex is useful.

BiFlex does not change the pressure support, it changes the rise time and reduction curve from a square wave to a rounded wave. Sorry for the translation issue here but BiFlex looks like the figure below.
