Looking for manual for Nellcor Puritan Bennet REM+ soft
[attachment=350][attachment=350]Hi all,
I recently bought a used CPAP device Nellcor Puritan Bennet REM+ soft on eBay, unfortunately without any manual or instructions. I want to use the device at my weekend apartment. Can anybody help me to get a manual or instructions how to set the correct pressure value?
Cheers
Franz

Hi Franz, I couldn't find any instructions or manual anywhere for this machine. If you ever do find out how to get into the Clinician Setup menu to change pressures, please let us know.

I couldn't find anything at all on this machine. Still looking.

Have you tried to email the manufacturer?

You know as well as anyone that they won't give clinician info.
Of course that doesn't mean it can't be found. It's a shame that the machine was bought and received without instructions.

Nellcor products
Call 1-800-NELLCOR or 1-800-635-5267, option 3

Puritan Bennett acute care equipment
Call 1-800-255-6774

You can check their manuals page

Hopefully they can help if nobody else can.

Another thought. Does it have an SD card slot?
You may be able to program it via SleepyHead.
