Anyways I am just glad to have the machine.

That's probably just a quirk of the insurance company's current policy.

I'm glad you got the S9 Autoset, it's a great machine.

After reading your replies yesterday I was concerned I was getting something else as I told the practioner that I was not certain if I would like auto pressure as she kept insisting most patients complained that they felt like they were suffocating using it. She told me I had to choose fixed or variable as a variable could not act as a fixed pressure machine. I chose fixed as that is what I am used to and did not want the problem of having to exchange a variable machine later if the practioner was right. Well the nice lady at the DME pulled out an autoset s9 when I arrived and told me off the bat that it is a variable machine but she set it to act as a fixed one for me. You think they would train the staff at the doctors office better on the machines capabilities. Anyways I have the machine with a heated tube and the resmed air fit nasal pillows instead of the swift nasal mask I've used. (Both seem to be nice upgrades from what I have used and the machine is so different from my s8 much quieter). I see how the unit works tonight. Only weird thing is now I have a cell modem attached to the unit to report my data to the DME so they can verify my usage to the insurance provider (did not have to do that 5 years ago) at least it is only necessary for the first 90 days then I can send the cell component back to the DME. Anyways I am just glad to have the machine.
Hi dad2crazykids,
