Let's start with something simple: what is the difference between a CPAP set at 12 with a C-Flex setting of 1 (ie. 12 on inhale and 11 on exhale) and a BiPAP with IPAP 12 and EPAP 11? My understanding is that they are essentially identical.

I have noticed that the pressure doesn't jump from EPAP to IPAP until I start to inhale. With C-Flex, on the other hand, the pressure jump occurs at the end of the exhale. Not much of a difference, but it is a difference nevertheless.

Actually, this is also a difference between the PRS1 C-Flex and the ResMed EPR. With EPR, the pressure reduction ends at the start of the subsequent inhale, while, as you said, C-Flex pressure reduction ends at the end of the exhale.

There's also C-Flex Plus, not to be confused with the Plus machine.

It seems they'll do anything to confuse people with a dizzying array of options. Automobile manufacturers do the same thing.

I think there's a C-Flex Plus Plus. or maybe that's a computer programming language. Too-funny
