Manual for S9 VPAP Auto BiLevel Machine
Not sure if the combined manual works for this machine or not since it doesn't list Bi-Level in the description. I thought I was getting a Phillips PR System One 60 but apparently not.

There's a link at the top of the page to request manuals via email.

With a limit of 2 requests max, don't want to request the wrong manual and then not be able to get one.

When you put the request in tell them the machine number and they'll get you the right manual.

VPAP is ResMed's name for Bilevel.

Is VPAP and Bilevel the same as BIPAP?

All the same- VPAP, Bilevel, and BiPAP. Bilevel is the general description. BiPAP is PRs trade name so Resmed had to come up with a different trade name which is VPAP.

Mongo - you beat me to it.

RE: Manual for S9 VPAP Auto BiLevel Machine
Hi krelvin,

Your number for Pressure Support is 8, which is very high as a fixed, constant amount, unless you have a lung condition which requires it.

When you check your SpO2, I hope it is not pegged at 98% and 99% most of the night.

I think it is important to not over-do it with too high of a setting for PS if that causes the SpO2 to be too high all night long.

I used to use a minimum PS setting of 6 but after getting a Pulse Oximeter I lowered it to between 4 and 5 so that my SpO2 now stays between 94 to 96 pretty much all night.

(I am talking about the average SpO2 over a period of perhaps an hour or so during our sleep, not how low the occasional dips drop to because of apnea events.)

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

Just saw your comment here and was wondering why you wanted your overnight O2 levels to be lower then what you were experiencing with the higher Pressure Support you had set on your Adapt ? Both you and krelvin I believe are in the ASV Auto Mode, while I am in ASV Mode and both of your pressures are higher then what I have my settings at.

During my sleep study's my saturation rate was 97% on ASV with the low of 90% during a 74 second central .

My settings are : Mode ASV - EPAP-4, Min PS-3, and Max PS-8 . So my max pressure goes up to 12. My AHI the last 2 nights have been .81 and .48 .

I did a spot check last night while sleeping. My oximeter will record the levels but I can't down load them. I noticed that my levels had increased from my normal at rest levels of 93-95% .. on a good day 94-96% up to 98%, and peaked at 99% several times, after about an hour usage. Will do another check tonight. It falls off my finger after a couple of hours with me moving around. I have checked it against 3 different hospital grade oximeter and it has always been exactly the same reading as they recorded. So believe it is as accurate as they are !
