Comparing Resmed machines in Australia vs US
#11
RE: Comparing Resmed machines in Australia vs US
I don't think I can comment on whether or not a fixed pressure machine would be suitable - probably better wait for your test results to see what you're actually dealing with.

Having said that, I believe there is a Philips Dreamstation Bipap with auto EPAP. Check it out https://philipsproductcontent.blob.core....3f64a9.pdf

I know we always recommend Resmed, but this Philips might be the answer to the maiden's prayer when it comes to auto bilevel and seems to be a lot lower priced than Resmed - NSW CPAP have it for $2400 at the moment.

I wonder why Resmed don't supply the VAuto here - I mean they're made in Sydney for Heaven's sake!

RE: Comparing Resmed machines in Australia vs US
Only a few Australian CPAP suppliers ask for a prescription for any xPAP machine and is this is not required by law - ask them if they want your business or not! The bottom line is that you can get a Bilevel machine for less than half the price that Australian suppliers want by using a US supplier. My gently used Resmed VAuto Bilevel cost me less than $1000 dollars. The S9 version is even cheaper. I have happily used Supplier #2 for both of my BiLevel machines.

 Thanks for the tip. 
If you needed to service your Vauto where would you have it done? 
(Ps. Notice you are also Gold Coast ?)
