You are absolutely correct.  It breathes with me as I breathe.

You are absolutely correct.  The machine breathes with me and increases in pressure as needed up to 23 with PS of 4.  After talking with the clinician, she agreed that the machine needed to be checked so they are sending me a loaner and will send the machine to the manufacturer to be checked out.  I know for sure that the Smartstart feature is not working.  I guess this procedure is protocol before sending me to the doctor which makes sense to me.

I appreciate everyone's input.
