Hi Rich,

Here is a link to a recent thread which has several old lists and new lists of the ResMed machines:

I think the newly redesigned ResMed web site is very hard to navigate and is not very helpful, but here is a list of ResMed machines (scroll down after clicking on link): http://www.resmed.com/us/en/healthcare-p...vices.html

Here is a link having more info on the ResMed bilevel machines for "ventilation":

Good to hear from you. How are you feeling these days?

Would you like to tell us the therapy mode your machine is set in? And what are min and max EPAP, and min and max PS, and what is the max pressure limit? And what problems are you having?

Take care,
--- Vaughn

The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

Fair..had problems with my 950 and Second win replaced it with a 960.

here is a couple of my latest posts:

Here is a couple not posted here:

A review of the Philips Respironics BiPAP AutoSV Advance System One 960.

Noted a few changes, one I cannot check by was told, "The 950 series have a design flaw where the connectors to the pressure sensors can get loose. The 960 series put a big screw through the circuit board over the pressure sensors to hold it down tight."

After my old 950 acted up I can believe it. The new machine is working well and no longer do I have the wild rides I have been having…

A few things I have noted, first the power plug into the machine is bigger and stronger, and after having a problem with the 950 I did not dare unplug it after a couple of times it was not getting a good connection.

Next the main knob has a wider base, and a much stronger snap action, which help prevents mistakenly hitting it and turning on the machine which was a little too easy to do on the 950.

The next big change was to the Humidifier's tank, they removed a baffle from the top lid. I have seen much less water use and no rain out so far but it seems I am getting enough humidity so keep my nose and face happy.

I think this change allow more warm water to give up steam where the old cover may have restricted this, and at the same time might have caused more water droplets to form on its cooler lid.

One last thing, the travel bag that now comes with the new 960 is cheaper and lighter so I kept the old heavier bag from the 950.

The lids...the older one on the left and the newer one on the right.

Very clever. Establish a dummy account to ask an "innocent" leading question, then use another account to "answer" (read: hawk your wares).

Product placement at its best, if not a classic example of advertising guerrilla warfare, pushing ResMed while in the same stroke undercutting Resperonics. And for free. Kudos; check's in the mail.

P. T. Barnum was right.

Tyrone, if your point is that racprops and vsheline are the same person, you are incorrect.

Vsheline (Vaughn) is our go-to guy for all things ASV related. He's also been here a long, long time.

Hang out here a while longer and you will see that such activity as you suspect doesn't happen here. We love to argue about which one is best, yes, but actually push a single thread to promote one over the other? Nah, no fun in that.

Racprops, when you have time, please do a more formal review of the 960 over in the Review Forum.
