CPAP vs Mask
Can you use a resmed Mirage Quattro mask with a RemStar Plus M Series cpap machine? I guess what I'm asking is will the hose fit?

Or do you have to buy the mask from the maker of the machine?

Thanks

Hi Rich60, welcome aboard
Yes, you can use any mask with any machine
Do you own this machine or intending to purchase it?

Hi Rich60,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You can interchange different brands of masks with different brands of machines.
For example, I use a Resmed S9AutoSet machine and a Respironics Wisp Nasal mask.
Hang in there for more answers to your question and best of luck to you.

I don't own this machine. It just came up that I could get a good deal on it. I didn't buy it yet. A guy at work has a RemStar M machine and said it works OK for him(his is not a Plus whatever that means, heh). Other then that I don't know much about it.
I just took the sleep test and have not bought a machine yet. I used the Quattro mask during the test so I thought I would get the same mask.
Did you have some thoughts on this machine?

I would steer away from this machine, RemStar Plus M Series cpap machine is not data capable machine and also an older machine

Phillips Repironcis System one (50 or 6o series machines) and ResMed S9 is better options and also newer machines with advanced features

Thanks Zonk,

After your advice I decided to go with the ResMed S9 Elite. I bought it from "Supplier #2". Very good deal with only 30 hrs on the machine.
Thanks

RE: CPAP vs Mask
Congrats. S9 Elite is data capable machine
You can use either software, SleepyHead or/and ResScan. SleepyHead also works on Mac computers
Software download link http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Forum-Private-Files-and-Links

If you have not asked for the clinical manual yet, its worth to have as it tells every thing you need to know about the machine http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual
