Did the online supplier set machine correctly?
#1
Question 

I have a Resmed s9 VPAPS Easy-breath machine. It is model number 36004A.

Under settings it lists:

Mode. S
IPAP 8.0
EPAP 4.0
Easy-Breathe. On-off toggle
Ti Max. 2.0
Ti Min. 0.3
RISE TIME. 300
Trigger. Med
CYCLE. Med
Max Ramp
Start EPAP. 4.0

Is those correct for an 8/4 pressure setting? How do I adjust the pressure?

Pressure settings are correct 8/4 means 8 IPAP and 4 EPAP.
The other parameters are machine defaults and are often just left at default.

A VPAP S is not an ASV as in your profile... It's a bilevel with spontaneous trigger.

You're right. The machine just arrived and I should change my profile. The ASV machine was the one that broke down.
