I am new to apnea and have not been to a sleep specialist but from symptoms my wife has been describing to me for years now, I have sleep apnea.
Last week I ordered my machine from Amazon, did not need prescription or anything like that, have not used it yet and now just slowly learning about OSA etc and all other related stuff.
My 1st question is do I really need Sleep Apnea Test in order to use my ResMed S9 VPAP Auto with H5iTM Humidifier machine?
I mean I know I have it( OSA), there is no doubt, my only concern is how to find the initial pressure setting or do I even need to know it if on Auto-set mode?
Also , correct me if am wrong but wouldn't all the features my machine came with and capable of monitoring, like: central sleep apnea detection, sleep quality indicator, AHI, etc, wouldn't all this show what the sleep apnea test would?
Is the pressure number based on things like: age, weight, etc or is it totally unique for each person?
Any advise is greatly appreciated.
