Comparative Analysis of 8 APAP Machines
RE: Comparative Analysis of 8 APAP Machines
Something worth noting as well is there were two things tested seperately. Aside from the restricted airflow scenario the researchers also measured the residual AHI of the simulated patient. The Icon and Airsense were the only two machines to pass the flow restriction test but in addition to them the Weinmann Somnobalance E was able to get a residual AHI of less than 5 per hour.

That's why out of the three choices my insurance covered I went with a PrismaSmart, Weinmann's update of the Somnobalance.

Pretty interesting stuff there. Skewed or not, there's some relevant information about these machines.

I'm not a doctor in real or fictional life. My posts include opinions based upon user experience regarding CPAP therapy and should not be considered medically professional direction or advice. Even a 1,000 mile trip requires a good first step. My recommended first steps include getting good walking shoes, 1 great cup of coffee, and a good GPS.
