[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.

If EPR is the same as pressure relief then ResMed has a bug in their software. When I turn pressure relief off in the settings, the clinical settings for EPR still say ON.
Should the settings be in sync if they are the same thing?

One is a patient setting the other is a clinician setting. Turning it on in the Clinician settings makes it available for the patient. As the patient, you can still toggle it on/off providing the Essentials Plus mode is also enabled.

Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.
