It sounds like it's doing the trick then.

Doing a quick look online, they seem to retail for a similar price, though the "MSRP" of the VPAP-ST is US$8000 while the VPAP Adapt is $4600. Retail is around $3300 depending on the package you buy. There's obviously a huge amount of market manipulation going on in this business.

Regarding getting the sleep study report, my report (probably like most others) is an "interpreted report", meaning that it's all dialogue with little actual data or graphs. I don't think my sleep study center will release the actual hard data or graphs. When I asked about it, they said "it's many many pages of data". It's sad that there's no short-summary version. The "interpreted report" is well, already "heavily interpreted" without significant technical data. It would be so great if there was the summary data like what's displayed in a "SleepHead" report (AHI breakdown, avg this and that, etc.).

Sleep Apnea has given me a terrible memory. Please forgive me if I've repeated myself.
