DreamStation Auto - setup question
#1
Unpacked it and got it configured. Didn't take long, the clinician manual was included.

Question:

There is a setting,"Mask Type", that has the options "OFF", "x1", "x2", "x3", "x4", "x5".

The book says it's for pressure compensation for a Philips Respironics mask. I don't have a PR mask, I have a Resmed mask. I do have the book for the mask, and it does have 2 resistance numbers: 50 L/min: 0.4 cm H2O and 100 L/min: 1.4 cm H2O.

Mask venting rate at my pressure is going to be about 27-28 L/min.

Any ideas on how this "Mask Type" should be set?

I used a PR Nuance Pro pillow mask for a while. The resistance setting for it is x2 for the s,m and large pillows. When I changed to the ResMed Airfit P10 I kept the same setting. It seems to be working out OK. I couldn't see a difference in my numbers after the change.

Thanks. I'm using a Resmed Swift FX nasal pillow mask.

I'll look at the PR Nuance Pro data sheet and see how the numbers correspond to the Swift FX and set accordingly.

This is mostly marketing. It makes a small adjustment to the pressure based on the leak rate. It is not a critical setting.
