Dreamstation 2 - Expiration Issue

Dreamstation 2 - Expiration Issue
Just received new machine from recall, used it for 2 weeks and now it is difficult to breath out.

I tried 2 different masks, hose is not plugged, even blowing directly in to the hose is restricted.

I rechecked all setting, using Flex option 3, auto

Will call support in AM, and help greatly appreciated

Hi 8675309! - Welcome
The flex settings do not correlate with the Resmed EPR values, and do not work the same way. Many users have experienced bad results using the flex set to 3, and wound up using a setting of 2. From reading posts here, it is almost a night and day difference.

If it happens to be in "P-Flex" mode, I found that horrible.
Regular Flex mode was better, more like what I was used to with the loaner Resmed (and my original Ds-1)
On the user screen, it will say Flex or P-Flex
