[Equipment] F&P SleepStyle (new model) Help with setup?
#1
F&P SleepStyle (new model) Help with setup?
I just purchased a F&P SleepStyle to replace an old System One and, briefly, DreamStation that I purchased in error not realizing it was also part of the recall.  I have severe sleep apnea and am unable to function without a full night of "therapy".  I've been successfully using the System One every night for close to 8 years or so.  
I've had the SleepStyle for one week and cannot figure out how to get the settings so that the AHI is zero.  I found the clinicians menu (online), but I could use suggestions on how to get this to work correctly.  I bought it online from an online retailer and a girl said the AHI is adjusted by: if the mask is ok, a change in sleep position, pressure.  I finally did change the mask, cannot change the sleep position (sinus issues), having difficulty figuring out the pressure settings.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  

Thank you.

BethT,
Welcome to Apnea Board!

You can start out by using the same settings that you used on the System One and adjust from there.

Did you have good results with your System One and/or DreamStation?  What settings did you use?  What were your AHI readings on these two machines?

Not knowing which SleepStyle you have, but if you need a Clinicians Manual, order it here:

Good idea.  The System One was automatic as far as I knew - the dme provider mailed it to me and I just plugged it in. The DreamStation had "therapy" settings from 1 to 5.  I accidentally chose 1 and didn't sleep for a week until I noticed the change.  4-5 was the right number, and I was fine.  And this was just a couple of weeks ago.  Let me check out the clinician's manual for the SleepStyle, thank you.  I had someone on the phone with customer service from Fisher & Paytel and they refused to send me that manual, would only send it to my provider.  

Thanks for your help.

If you haven't ordered your Clinician's manual yet, go to the link I posted above to order.
Scroll down to Section Three and look for the SleepStyle listing.  Follow directions to order by Email.

You can order up to 2 manuals, so you might also want to order one for the DreamStation.

Believe me, no provider is going to give you a clinician's manual. All you'll get if you're lucky is the user manual.

I just ordered it.  The problem issue with the DreamStation is it has not been repaired yet (the recall).   

I'll keep you posted.

Thank you again for your help.
