need halp adjusting c pap settings
i have a new devilbiss intellipap auto adjust and the setting are wrong. Its now Sunday and cant get help. the air flow is wayyy to strong. Its set without a ramp up and is set to auto adjust from 10 to 15 and it should be with a ramp up and from 6 to 10 airflow.
last night it made me sick with air ingested in my stomach must get it changed but dont know how to change the settings. the store is closed and cant get help.
my doctor originally set the pressure at 10 and lowered it to 8. i got a new machine and the store set it wrong.
please help . the book that came with the machine is impossible to understand. i would love to call someone who could tell me what buttons to push.
thanks for any help

RE: need halp adjusting c pap settings
I would try something like this ...

DeVilbiss 9000 series machines: Turn on the machine, then turn off the machine. Immediately after that, simultaneously press the down arrow button and the ramp buttons. While holding those two buttons down hit the power button to enter the setup mode. Scroll through the menu using the select button until you get to IPAP and EPAP settings. Use the up and down arrow buttons to change the levels. When done turn off the machine.

If those directions, or something like them, don't work you'll have to let us know exactly which model you have.

DeVilbiss Manuals:
DeVilbiss IntelliPAP AutoAdjust, SleepCube AutoAdjust, SleepCube Plus (combined manual)
DeVilbiss IntelliPAP Bilevel and SleepCube Bilevel (combined manual)
DeVilbiss IntelliPAP AutoAdjust with SmartFlex, SleepCube AutoAdjust with SmartFlex (combined manual)
DeVilbiss IntelliPAP Standard, SleepCube Standard (combined manual)

You can then send an email requesting a copy of the manual. Follow directions here to do that:

I'm not sure if he knows which manual to request. That's why I asked him to tell us which model he has.

The machine name listed in the profile matches the first manual in the list, but you know how manufacturers seem to make model identification difficult.
