RE: My Journey from BiPAP Auto to Aircurve 10 Vauto
Well I am new here, I have read the rules and if this in anyway is against any of them please delete it.  I just received my aircurve today from Supplier #2.  They said lightly used and they meant it - 285 run hours. So approximately one month used.  They had great service, I called about hooking air up to the machine and they sent 2 couplings.  The first was a heated hose with oxygen port and the second was when I needed to use the regular air hose.  It came quickly, in great shape and I am amazed at the lower cost.  So tonight is the first time, I will post tomorrow the OSCAR report and see what you can help improve on them.  Thank you everyone that helped guide me in my purchase.

Looking forward to seeing your first results. Congratulations on the good transaction with Supplier #2. I am yet to hear of anyone not having a good experience with this company. Nothing at all wrong with your post. Good luck and sleep well.

I had a hiccup last night. I guess the card I had was not formatted so no OSCAR last night. I reformatted to fat32 and will try tonight.

RE: My Journey from BiPAP Auto to Aircurve 10 Vauto
Well this was my 2nd night with the new VAUTO.  It was a different type of night with me taking something to help me sleep.  I was up a couple of times and just could not fall asleep until about 1AM.  But the sleep seemed good, just not enough of it.  My chart looks different then what the Dream station showed and I am not sure what it means. so here it is.  If you would like a blowup of any part let me know.

Let's see what looks different.  Respiratory statistics are identical, but flow limit is gone. No hypopnea and an exceptionally low event rate.  It's not a huge difference other than the breathing and machine response seems so much quieter.  There might be more in the zoomed details.

A very good piece of data there showing that the VAuto is better at treatment than the Respironics in your situation. This should result in better sleep consistently. Congrats.

A quick question, I see RE in the bottom of the chart. Mine dose not have that. Do I need to add it? If so how?

A lot of the Event parameters will not be visible if you have not experienced one of those types of events.
