Comparative Analysis of 8 APAP Machines
#11
Interesting info. I will have to say that I checked my data for my Apex Auto after reading this and I will say it shows clearly that when I have an event the pressure rises accordingly and corrects the problem. But I also use a bottom pressure of 8 cmH20 if that makes any difference I don't know.

The other thing to wonder is which version of the Apex Auto did they use in the test? I had a chance to try two of them and they had two different model numbers. The last digit of one of them was one higher than the other. Don't know exactly why or what changes had been made but thought it would be worth mentioning.

Wondering if this is a typo. Otherwise I can't make any sense out of this.

"D = Resmart (Light Blue)
G = Apex XT-Auto (Light Blue)"

It shows two Light Blues.

Thanx for all the work you put into this BTW.

Here is another analysis - I think the respironics and resmed do well, they seem both good allrounders. see link:

Interesting study, but no key to associate the machine identities with their device number assignment means we don't know which machines excelled and which ones failed.

The key is at the bottom of each of the figures. I had to open them in another window in order to see it.
