In other words, not much. With new BiPAP last night's AHI was 2.0 with 7 day average running around 3.7 -- had a few "issues" at first. Now, at 19/15.....
Can you please confirm the model number of your BiPAP.

Take the humidifier out and turn the machine over and look for the model number. The important thing is the 3-digit number in the middle.

Does it say 660 or 661? Or does it say 760 or 761?

If you have a 760 or 761 machine, you already have a BiPAP Auto, but it has been set in BiPAP mode instead of Auto BiPAP mode.

If you have a 660 or 661 machine, you have a BiPAP Pro and it cannot be set in Auto mode.

Robysue, it is a 660P -- the "Pro" model so is not an auto. No probs turning it over since I have yet to put any water in my humidifier. That will come later when the dry air arrives. In the Southern US, we have PLENTY of humidity by rote this time of the year.

Part of why I want an auto machine is the ability to set it in any mode I choose -- auto BiPAP, manual BiPAP, or CPAP

Thanks for your help!
Phil
