[Equipment] New Machine question
#1
New Machine question
G'day 
First time posting here , I have been on CPAP for more than 15 years , I use a Philips Respironics REMstar Pro and a Mirage Swift nasal pillows mask .
I have it on set on 9.5 , I never was given a pressure by the sleep doc years ago , he just asked what my weight was and said set it at 9 .
I have just downloaded Oscar and are kind of confused with all the graphs . I have posted a screen shot to another forum for advice , still confused  Smile
can I post a couple here ? 

Anyway I'm thinking of buying a 12 volt Travel auto cpap  . The Z2 looks small and easy to carry  for camping and on a motorcycle , 
I had a look at the Machine reviews on this forum and I only found reviews for the Z1 most were negative but I am lead to believe the Z2 is much improved from info I have found searching the web .

Anyone use or had any experience with the Z2  apap . 

I'm sure I will have many questions but I don't want to ramble on to much . 

Thanks regards Jacko

RE: New Machine question
Welcome to the board. The travel cpaps just are not very good for therapy. (I do not know anything about the machine you asked about). The ResMed S10 autoset is the best machine for the bast amount of people. They are not large and I would look into that model.

RE: New Machine question
Are you camping or in a hotel. I have multiple cross country trips on a motorcycle, and it makes all the difference. The Z2 is pretty noisy, and if low power draw but good therapy is needed, I might be more inclined to the AirMini or Dreamstation Go. If price is your priority, then the Z2 wins, but your battery and charging system is going to be fairly expensive on any option. Your Remstar Pro is frankly not a bad 12V choice.
