Mask type Setting on Respironics
#1
Mask type Setting on Respironics
I have looked everywhere.  search engine, here.  I can not find the X1-5 value for a medium dreamwear full face mask.  The only thing I found on here was that it should be on the package or mask.  It's not.  At one point a long time ago I thought I had found a chart but I can not find it.
Please help.

A Google search of Philips shows it to be a X1 setting.
Here is the link to the Dreamwear instructions:

Symbols
X1
Philips Respironics System One Resistance Control Value

Philips Respironics System One Resistance Control
Using your mask with a Philips Respironics System One device provides optimal comfort. The provider sets this value (X1) on your device.

  I took that as they explained what the X1 symbol means, then later when they talk about it in the instructions they just used the symbol but weren't actually saying that it was a value of 1.

Thank you

Respironics mask packaging are labeled with X1 though X5.  This is the mask resistant number you set on your machine.

If you should ever use a ResMed mask, leave the resistance setting to off.

I looked on the internet at images of the Dreamwear package and cushion. The resistance setting wasn't on any of the images of either side of package or cushion. It is listed in the instructions included with the mask, however.

RE: Mask type Setting on Respironics
Your not the only one Crispy, 
It's not writen on my mask (same type as yours) or in any of the docs i got either. I've been searching for 2 days on the web. Read all the PR docs related online. Talk about frusterating. 

Nice to see it here. in the link above.

I don't know where this doc was found but i couldn't find it, so don't feel bad. 
And come on: "System One Resistance Control Value" = "Mask Type Setting" Sorry, but i have a special name for people that document like this. lol

Anyhow,  Thanks for the info. I can now set my mask type!!!
