I'm a pretty smart guy, but I cannot decode Respironics gobbledygook. They have about 750 different models, and series, and This-Flex and That.
He just got it new two months ago. Top says:
REMStar Auto A-Flex
No series mentioned.
A-Flex = Respironics brand of exhalation relief -- got that.
REMStar -- meaning data capable?
The big question: does Auto mean APAP?
Which clinician setup manual does he need?
Hard to tell because the ones listed all say "M Series".
There is a auto A flex M series and yes it is a apap . It came out just before the system one 50 series platform. I have one under the bunk of my Freightliner for the times I can't get home to my PR750. Not too bad a machine, other than it uses a smart card and requires a smart card reader from Respironics and Encore software to read it. Not sure what all data it records other than compliance data? Never had a reader for it. Found it to be just as comfortable as the PR 550 auto that I used to use. If it is a M series it's not a new machine, maybe new to him.
