RE: BiPAP Reviews
Thank you for your help, too! 
It was my fault for being confusing and confused. Learning a lot on these boards though. 
Wish us luck, first night on VPAP (See I remembered )  Wink

RE: BiPAP Reviews
If you go with the ResMed, be wary of the Central Apnea Detection method that it uses.  Three seconds into any apnea, some of their machines start sending pulses that can be disruptive to sleep.  The solution can be worse than the disease.  

If you're going to use any machine that has central detection with a child, insist that your child receive a sleep study using THAT MACHINE with your kid and verify that the pulses do not impact your child's sleep by watching the brainwave results.

Don't let them use their sleep study machine!  It doesn't send the Central Apnea Detection pulses and thus there's no way to know whether the pulses disrupt your child's sleep.  

Don't rely upon your child to tell you how they feel.  A ten year old is too young to be able to articulate (or even recognize) if their sleep is disrupted.

That is pretty alarmist sounding.  A small minority of people are even aware of the "forced oscillation technique" (FOT) which is a 1.0 cm peak to peak pressure oscillation at 4 Hz used to determine if the airway is open.  In other threads you have also warned of the dangers of EMF from a CPAP.  Me thinks you worry too much and would like others to share your irrational fears.

Anyone who has sleep apnea should be able to understand that things you don't notice can dramatically affect your sleep.

I do believe that it is important for people to understand what their machines do while they'e asleep, and how those things may impact their sleep without them knowing.  I'm not sure why you find that alarmist.

You also appear to have misunderstood what I wrote about EMF.  You may want to re read what I wrote.  My position is that the risks of EMF are unknown, but that there are some easy, commonsense precautions that we can take to minimize our exposure to that unknown risk.
