Dreamstastion fixed pressure

RE: Dreamstastion fixed pressure
ResMed AutoSet hands down.
Why ResMed?

1. Faster algorithmic response to events than PR.

2. Lower average pressure

3. Better to avoid Aerophagia.

4. EPR provides for better treatment of hypopneas, RERAs, Flow Limits, UARS, and snores

5. EPR acts like a BiLevel up to a limit of 3cmw (1,2,or 3cmw) and a max pressure of 20 cmw

6. EPR follows your breathing where as Flex predicts it with a feeling of fighting to get a breath when it predicts incorrectly

7. More flexibility in treating a greater variety of Apneas and respiratory events.

8. In general provides better therapy.

I have frequently told many DreamStation users that they need to get either the ReaMed AutoSet or. BiLevel to get better therapy. 

Respironics costs less

RE: Dreamstastion fixed pressure
My original sleep "doctor"/DME "gave" me the DreamStation that was not an auto.

When I told him of my discomfort & experiences, I asked for an auto CPAP. He refused, and finally "compromised" by saying he'd be willing to "let" me trial an auto setting on my DreamStation non-auto. But I researched and found that the non-auto DreamStation let's you trial an auto mode for 30 days and 30 days only. So I refused. (I ended up giving him back the machine, since it was a rental. And I found a better DME that readily dispensed an auto.)

So it's not true that only an auto DreamStation will demo an auto mode.
