[Equipment] ResMed AirSense 10 menu item: Pressure Relief vs. EPR
#1
For the ResMed AirSense 10 model, the main (simple) menu has a setting for "Pressure Relief" with On, or Off choices.

In the more advanced, 'Clinical Settings' menu, there is EPR On/Off with EPR Level settings.  How do these two configuration items work together? (If at all.)  It seems if you turn EPR On/Off it doesn't affect the Pressure Relief setting.   Does "Pressure Relief" simply equate to EPR on/off?

Curious!

I believe Pressure Relief and EPR are the exact same things. The clinical menu offers more choices.

EPR on or off turns on or off the pressure relief.

In the advanced settings for EPR (Levels 1-3):
1 is 1 cm H2O pressure (EPAP) relief below your current pressure, 2 is 2 cm's below and 3 is 3 cm's below. 1 gives the least amount of pressure relief, 3 gives the most.

Yes, EPR is the same as Pressure Relief.
