I just purchased the z1 auto and it is set on apap. I would like to change it to straight cpap but the manual doesn't provide this info. Can anyone help me? Thanks

Hi Aschaefer5,

I believe the device "locks" after each power cycle.
You have to "unlock" to enable switching modes.

Order the Clinicians Manual for your Z1 Auto.  You should find detailed instruction.

Thanks for the help.  The manual on how to lock and unlock isn't very good describing how to go to different settings.  The manual I was able to find totally skipped how to change from APAP to CPAP indicating a clinician needed to perform the task?   hope this one is better.

I found the Clinician's Manual available for download online, and I have attached it to this post. This manual allowed me to adjust my Z1 Auto travel CPAP to the correct settings. 

IMPORTANT: I did this AFTER receiving my doctor's prescription for the appropriate treatment settings. This was to save a visit to my medical equipment provider - not to avoid getting proper medical advice. 

A couple of other notes on the Z1 Auto:
* Per some advice I found on these forums, I do NOT use the skinny tubing that came with the device. I purchased standard diameter tubing online. I was able to get a 6' hose from The CPAP Shop, although I think 4' would have been fine...but it's hard to find them.
* Also, as advised on these forums, I "broke in" the motor on the unit by running it in another room overnight (about 8-10 hours). Apparently, the motor needs a little break-in time before it starts running more quietly.

Hope this helps save some other people some time with trial and error!

I'm astonished!  I unboxed mine, plugged it in and used it that night, and was amazed at how quiet it is (compared to a ResMed S8 Escape II, which I found to be extremely quiet).

Too bad you didn't do a comparison to see what decibel levels you had and achieved.  However, glad you like the machine; that's important for successful therapy.

Happy PAPing!
