New Here - Could use some help

RE: New Here - Could use some help
Anyway you can get your hands on a Resmed Autoset? Ask your supplier if they will rent one to you for a week. I'm really curious to see the difference you could get from the competition's auto CPAP. What part of the country are you in?

Called the DME and asked if I can rent one, was told it's been less than 30 days and they might allow me to trade for it.

Waiting on a call back, I am Central AL, close to Montgomery

I think it may make all the difference for you. Can't lose, that's for sure.

They will not do a trade since Insurance has already paid for my unit.

Best they can do is let me rent one for a month at $100/month, I'm going to pick it up tomorrow afternoon.

you'll have to tell me the best config based on data analysis from the Phillips as a starting point I guess.

Well, I think it makes sense to start with variable pressure and use the pressure support and see where that takes us.
Mode: Autoset or Autoset Soft
Minimum Pressure: 9.0
Maximum Pressure: 14.0
EPR: On, Full time
EPR setting: 3

I think this might be a good investment. If you like the machine, I know of a very lightly used machine (if at all) in Pensacola for $200, and one in Columbus GA with just over 1400 hours for $200. A new unit is $589, and you can trade yours to get it much lower at Supplier #2 and lightly used for less. If it works...

Sounds good, please PM me the details/contact info to the one in Pensacola, if it's in the condition you say it's in, I might just buy it anyway..

All you have to do is do a search on SearchTempest for CPAP machine or Resmed CPAP and it will come up in those States. SearchTempest lets you search Craigslist listings in any mile radius range you set. You will see the listings and contact information. For out-of-town sales I contact the seller, and ask for an image of the screen with run-hours, verify no-smoking verify the model (Autoset model 37028) and pay through PayPal or other protected payment system. CPAP machines don't seem to be a target of scams at this point.

I may have misread the ad. On second look it is coming up at $300 ResMed Airsense 10 CPAP Machine..Like New - $300 (Seffner, FL)

Slightly gun shy about Craigslist, found a lady in my area on FB marketplace with one for $250, at least I can go look at it and see it before I pay.

I guess let me see how the rental goes first..

I'm sure changing to ResMed will be night and day difference. Keep us updated on the rental trial.
