Insurance is covering most of a replacement for the M Series. My DME is pushing the ResMed AirSense 10 Elite CPAP Machine with a heated humidifier and hose. We also discussed the Respironics System One REMStar 60 Series with a heated humidifier and hose. (Note my DME said they had lots of trouble with the earlier System One REMStar 40? or 50? Series units. I have a couple of questions.
1. I would like to buy a machine that has future flexibility (Auto Mode), but so far I have had great success with the simple CPAP mode. Am I overthinking this? Should I just stick with a simple CPAP only machine?
2. From the forums, I see where the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet CPAP Machine can be set into either Auto or CPAP mode. Does anyone know if the Respironics System One REMStar 60 Series Auto Machine can also be set into simple CPAP mode? Or is this an Auto machine only?
3. I would like to gather anyone's experience concerning differences, advantages or disadvantages of the two platforms (ResMed AirSense 10 versus Respironics System One REMStar 60 Series). I see some info about the recalls and firmware updates for the ResMed, but I don't see much discussion about the REMStar 60 Series. Which one would you get?
TIA for your responses!
