Well your post showed up. It's a bit off-topic but apparently you are not banned. Unsure

You're not banned. You tried to reply & then create a new thread in the Product Reviews Forums area. If you read the description of those forums, brand new members can't post there until they transition to regular membership status, which will happen soon now with you, since you just need a few more posts to be automatically entered into the regular membership group. This is to prevent spammers from posting fraudulent "product reviews". We require members to be here and participate in the Main Forum for a while first prior to posting product reviews.

RE: BiPAP vs. VAuto
This is also the only forum I have ever seen that allows posts without being logged in. One could post without being logged in, but not create threads, etc. So make sure you are logged in. If, like me, you assume that you are logged in simply because you can post, that can be confusing at first.

Nope not here. Our forum software requires members to be logged in in order to post. Please read my post above your's for the reason Lux could not post in the Product Reviews Forum.

RE: BiPAP vs. VAuto
Yes, IMO you should push for an auto bi-level. In the future I think all machines will have multi mode capability including auto. It's progressive and it makes sense.

it may not make as much sense to those who feel the need to protect their profit margins.

RE: BiPAP vs. VAuto
When I was diagnosed, I quickly found out from wonderful forums like this one to know your products and that the DME and insurance companies will do everything to maximize their profit. I insisted on a auto bilevel. And in order to get it, I had to do a sleep study, first try a cpap, then and auto bilevel and now I ended up with an ASV bilevel - but my AHI went from in the 70s to .8 - 1.2 and I ended up picking up a spare brand new bipap (760P) cheap for cash.

It was uphill with everyone, every time but worth it.
