CPAP Machine Choices - read this before you accept a new machine
RE: CPAP Machine Choices - read this before you accept a new machine
I agree with Dave.

I've had the ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV for a little over a year.  It is an amazing machine.  It seems to respond instantly as it is supposed to.  And its parameters are easily adjusted as needed.  The toughest part for me was finding the best mask.  If you have any problems with your mask (pillows, hybrid, or whatever you get) as far as leakage, discomfort, or anything, don't give up.  There are many great choices available.  You can search the forum for specific masks and read other people's experiences and/or go directly to the Mask Review section.

Maybe I was a bit late to the party, but it took me a full year to discover and try my ResMed AirFit F30 hybrid (ResMed calls it a Full Face Mask) mask which is so comfortable and leak-free for me.  I actually look forward to using it and getting a great night sleep.

Everybody has different needs.  If you have centrals or mixed apneas, the ResMed ASV bubbles up to the top.  It will serve you well.  There may be a challenge in finding the best mask though.  So, please don't get too frustrated but ask away if you feel your mask isn't working out.


My personal journey:
1/14/18 - Sleep Study, 40 AHI, Mixed Apnea (Oh joy).
Next 7 months in the circus - 6 studies, 4 xPAP machines, 8 masks, loads of poor help and misinformation.
8/20/18 - Prescription finally in-hand.
9/4/18 - I purchased  my ResMed ASV machine & F20 Mask from Supplier #2.
9/12/18 - Received my equipment... And another Hose-Head was hatched.
10/27/18 - Discovered an oasis here at the Apnea Board (You guys and dolls rock).

Seek professional help and advice from your sleep doctors. And if you get tired of the bureaucratic BS and fleecing of your hard-earned cash, exit the Twilight Zone. You have found sanctuary here at the ApneaBoard…
