Yes, there was a big "X2" on the packaging insert for the Nuance Pro Gel mask and an "X1" for the Wisp mask.
I have a fixed-pressure CPAP machine. Both your machines are auto-adjusting CPAP machines. You can change the pressures as often as you like. I can change the pressure on my machine as often as I like, so long as it's in fixed CPAP mode.
Besides only supplying a fixed pressure, my machine also does not score flow limitations or snoring - unless I have it in auto-trial mode. My understanding is that the machine is exactly the same as an auto-adjusting machine except for its software.
When I go into the Clinician's Menu on my machine, there is an option for "Auto-Trial" that allows me to run my machine in auto-adjusting mode for up to 30 days. When the number of days the machine has run in auto mode reaches 30, the function is disabled.
I just discovered today that PR has added an option to reset the auto trial mode. There is a value called "Reset" in my Auto-Trial menu that has a value of 5. When my 30 days runs out, I can reset the auto-trial mode days to 0/30, and I can do that 5 times. (Very convoluted, huh?)
I didn't discover this forum until 2+ months after I got my CPAP machine, or I would have gone with a different DME and asked for a ResMed auto adjusting machine.

Nobody told me anything about these X# settings when I got the machines, so, may I ask how you know what the X# setting is for the "PR nasal pillow" masks?
Does it say what X# is takes on the original package?

Huh? I have two machines, the Resmed A10 and the Philips Respironics 750P and I was under the impression I can change the settings as many times as I like.
Is there a hidden limit somewhere?
