Are you saying that the Respironics AUTO machines raise pressure is poor but RESMED is better?  I was considering asking for the For Her model but not if air flow is limited.  Sorry to be so dumb....I THINK I want to ask 'what is flow limitation?'
Thanks. Lynneat

The Respironics machines are unfortunately nferior at treating most obstructive sleep apnea including flow limitation when compared to the Resmed.  Flow limitation in particular responds better to bilevel (separate inhale and exhale) pressure. The Resmed exhale pressure relief (EPR) is bilevel, but limited to 3-cm. The Respironics Flex are slight pressure modifications for comfort during inhale or exhale transition but is not bilevel.  In addition, the Resmed autoset algorithm is much faster to respond to flow limitation, and the For-Her model is specifically designed to help with flow limitation. Here is how for her is different from standard autoset:
