Reasons I want an autotitrating machine:
1) It can be set to CPAP mode (so the doc's prescription can be followed) and I can compare results to using it in APAP mode.
1a) After my sleep test I had a belly full of air. Doc said, "That happens." I suspect that the constant pressure during the test may be the cause and so want an APAP fall-back option.
2) I recently developed OSA, expect it to get worse over time, and don't want to go in for another sleep test - ever.
3) I want the option to analyze all data from the machine's SDD card; data is plentiful from the Airsense 10 AutoSet, but not so much (?) from the AirSense 10 CPAP.
I am covered by Federal BCBS, but am willing to skip insurance coverage and buy on-line, including paying for a home test kit and a new on-line prescription, just to get a device that suits me.
So, I ask you, Am I Nuts, or What? And why does my doc not want me to have a device that provides options?
