I'm a new member from Canada. I was diagnosed in June with OSA, and had used the Respironics System One 60AutoBipap Machine Model CA761TS.
I tried to do my due diligence in researching the products and saw the ResMed S9 got better reviews. So I decided to choose that knowing that the Airsense10 was not a good model for here because the wireless system was being discontinued for a new version coming in the fall.
I received my new machine exactly two weeks ago. And simply put I HATE it so much. it's not working for me. I have not had a good night sleep since using my new machine and my AHI has gone from 0.4 to between 4 and 7.4 being the highest yesterday. Unfortunately the machined are not returnable in Canada (they are all Final Sale), so I'm stuck with it. I really want to go back to the Philips Respironics as it worked best for me. The lady at the shop today told me that ResMed and Respironics do not use the same algorythims which could be why I'm not getting my results anymore. And politely told me I'm out of luck.
Has anyone been in this situation? I'm so miserable after spending $1500 for the ResMed machine, and I cannot afford to buy a second AutoBipap machine right now. Are there any places that sell used machines or do trade-ins? (I'm not sure if I'm asking a verboten question, I'm trying to stay in the guidelines).... I never knew how bad my sleep was until using the right machine for me....and I want my sleep back!!! HELP!
