RE: I changed my CPAP to APAP - what to expect
OK - now I understand the "brick" comment. The S9 Escape Auto only told me that I switched over to APAP with the parameters. To make matters even more frustrating, I must have accidentally erased the data from the CMS50E.

Will try again.

Thanks for the input. I need to get a new machine.

That can be incredibly frustrating. In the future you want to avoid any machine with plus, escape, or novo in the name from Respironics, Resmed, and F&P respectively.

Probably set it at 9 min since you are used to that and max of 12. If you are doing well on 9 nust give it 12 for a bit of headroom to react and see how you feel in a week.
Bet you feel better.
