I have just completed a sleeping test and proof suffering from OSAS. So I need a CPAP machine. I tried three APAP machines so far and all seeming work OK, but all behave differently on AHI, noise, comfort and price.
1. ResMed S9 AutoSet
2. Respironics PR System One 60 series CPAP Auto
3. DeVilbiss IntelliPAP AutoAdjust DV54
For the ResMed S9 AutoSet - most Quiet, less comfort, AHI 1.8 - 2.5
For the Respironics 60 series CPAP Auto - most noise, best comfort, AHI 1.3 - 1.9
For the DeVilbiss IntelliPAP Auto Adjust - Quiet, comfort, AHI 2 - 5
So my question is that what machine should I choose?
The one with lowest AHI ? That is Respironics, but my wife don't like it as it is a bit noise compare to the others two.
The DeVilbiss seen to be a good one (cheapest), but it AHI is higher than the others two. Is that mean it is not working as good as the others two?
The ResMed S9 is most Quiet, but it use the higher pressure (average 10.5 the others two are around 7.5), so I feel less comfortable than the others two.
Any advice would be very welcome, thanks you.
Hi ispetera, welcome aboard
Different machines have different algorithm and respond to snoring, flow limitation and apnea differently
If I,m not mistaken, IntelliPAP AutoAdjust does not record airflow waveform data or event duration, does not differentiate between obstructive apnea and central sleep apnea, and don,t come with the heated hose option
Both S9 AutoSet and PRS1 Auto are popular among forum members, you cannot wrong with either
But my personal preference goes with the S9 AutoSet, not necessary better but just i like the way the S9 display/report data on the screen sleep report including unintentional leak while PRS1 report total leak
i,m hoping admin or mods after they had morning coffee, move this thread to the main forum so get the attention it deserve
Best of luck
Thank for your information and quick reply zonk.
I more information I want to ask. Is the durability of the three machines I had tried ?
My saleman keep telling me that PRS1 Auto broken down more often than others.
I am not sure he is telling the true or just want me to buy the others CPAP machines.
You also mention move to the main forum for better attention. How to do that ?
