I have been on trial with ResMed S9 set at CPAP 8. AHI 8-25
Reset CPAP 10 for 2 weeks, AHI averaging around 12, then to CPAP 11.
Dr wrote Rx for CPAP 11 machine. When I asked for Auto set machine the Sleep store told me that the Dr had not written a script for Auto. Government pays a portion for machine but only according to prescription.
How does the Dr determine whether or not to order a CPAP or an APAP?
It seems from my reading that APAP is easier for compliance and comfort and handles the problem better. When I asked the Dr for a new Rx for an APAP she said that only the CPAP machine was covered but that is not the case. Since the ResMed Auto can be set at CPAP OR APAP I am thinking I should buy the ResMed Auto and pay the difference if needed.
New Rx written for APAP 7-13, but now Sleep Store trying to talk me out of the APAP. Feel like I am getting the run around.
ResMed S9 or S10?
What is the life of a sleep machine?
