How to enable EPR on ResMed S9 AutoSet?
Just unpacked my machine and noticed that EPR seems to be off. I entered the View Settings hidden menu by holding down the two front buttons next to the dial for 3 seconds and then scrolling down to View Settings. It says:

EPR Off
EPR Level Off

I cant seem to change them from here. Thought this would be on by default as it's one of the main selling points?

My Rx calls for "Pressure Relief = 2." That's what this setting is, right?

Thanks

Holding the two buttons next to the knob only gets you into the clinical info menu. To change settings you need to get into the clinical settings menu. Hold the double check mark button (bottom one) and click the knob in simultaneously - hold both down for three seconds. This will get you into the menu where you can change the settings - including EPR. EPR is pressure relief. Pressure relief of 2 = EPR 2. EPR may be a main selling point, but some find it annoying, you can try it out and see what you think. As Zonk says, "Some swear by it, some swear at it."
