[Equipment] BiPap as backup machine question
#1
Just completed an overdue sleep study and doctor prescribed a new machine, the Remstar Airsense 10 with a setting of 13.
This replaces by prior machine the Respironics BiPAPPlus series M. Anyone have any idea if this can be set to new settings and used as a backup machine?

Yes, you can use a bipap provided you know how to set the settings. If you normally have an EPR set to 3, you would set the lower pressure 3 cm less than your primary pressure. You can request a clinical manual to explain how here on this board.

Thanks. I know how to change it, I did not know if on the Bipap setting the IP and the EP set the same would accomplish CPAP.
So if I am understanding correctly setting the EP 3 below would keep it as a Bipap with the new prescription.
