I just got through to my old sleep lab. And I just figured out, through all of the members help, that my machine has an Autoset function that it's set too. To reiterate a reply I just posted:
Two thing's I figured out in the last hour:
[A] My donated ResMed AutoSet II EPR is set to "Autoset" not CPAP.
[B] The Sleep lab told me my prescribed numbers were Low 5 and High 20
***I just got into the clinical menu and made the changes Myself***
The settling time is 20 minutes......Anything else I should know before I try using it tonight? I have new filters, new hose, fresh pillow mask.....Oh my but I hope everyone says got for it!!
Sounds pretty good. The S8 Autoset can provide very good therapy, and is similar to the M-series auto I used to use. The biggest problem is that it's difficult to access the efficacy data that gives you a snapshot of how effective the treatment is, and whether you need to make changes. The most common change for an autoset is to increase the minimum pressure. If you're interested in something new, see my previous comments.
The 20 minutes is for ramp. I would suggest you just turn off ramp. With the autoset at 5-20 you don't need it. Ramp is to help people adjust to higher pressure but yours is already set near the minimum. Good luck, and hope you get a great nights sleep.
Since you got in touch with your sleep clinic, be sure to get a printed copy of that study for your records. It will come in handy in the future since it can continue to provide evidence of your sleep apnea. You don't need a new study.
