RE: Need help setting pressure
just learned how to set pressure on my
resmed autoset h5i s9 series
positive airway pressure device
with humidifier
nasal mask

originally setting it at 12 was like waterboarding, then ROTECH
changed it to 16 doc told em 14. There were no instructions in
tech manual. I found a video on line showing me how to set pressure
and check for leaks and AHI (apneas per hour)

go to utube and see if there is a video or check your manual.

It took me some playing with the round button after what you have done. It was not very fun. It will keep switching menus when you rotate the knob. Look for the arrows that point up or down and follow them to even more settings. Try not to give up, you will find the pressure settings.

Okay

RE: Need help setting pressure
I finally got it to work. (had to unplug, then plug machine back in). I have my settings at minimum 12, maximum 18 with a ramp setting of 9. It shouldn't be a problem because my machine has been starting at 9 for awhile now, and I haven't had to ramp it down to get to sleep. We'll see how it goes!
