[CPAP] High Pressure CPAP
#11
RE: High Pressure CPAP
What is the specific make and model of machine they offer? And what is your current apnea diagnosis?

Maybe I'd say let's see the results of the home sleep study data then we can assess whether or not they have the right machine ready for you. If you can, post the home sleep study charts redacting personal info.

RE: High Pressure CPAP
I am the last person in the world to be giving advice, but, here goes.  I am pretty sure I saw where your minimum pressure is 5.  If so, that is too low.  I think it needs to closer to 9,10 or 11.  Or just ignore this advice.

RE: High Pressure CPAP
Min pressure should be
min = 4 + EPR = 4 + 3 = 7 for ResMed
min = 4 + 2 = 6, this is allowing 2 cmw for flex
Higher min valuse are to address obstructive issues

RE: High Pressure CPAP
The Philips Respironics DREAMPACK-200 Dreamstation is a fixed pressure machine. You will be better of with an autoajusting machine that will regulate the pressure according to your needs. The best machine for most is the Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset. There are several Airsense 10 models. Be sure to request the autoset. The billing code is the same for it and the machine you've been offered and the supplier charges your insurance the same amount for both. Ask your Dr. to specify Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset in your prescription and and the supplier will not be able to substitute a less capable machine.
