PR System One Mask Resistance Settings
#11
The Mirage Quattro is a Resmed mask. I found the info below in the manual. Is that what you need?

Resistance
Drop in pressure measured (nominal)
at 50 L/min: 0.5 cm H2O
at 100 L/min: 1.6 cm H2O

Does anyone know where to change the resistance control in the System One? I bought a new Respironics mask (Comfort Gel) and the air pressure is way too intense with the new mask. I read in the mask manual that I am supposed to change the resistance control to X1. I cant find an option for resistance control in the user menu or in the clinician setup menu. Thanks for the help.

Hi BiggZigg - Welcome

First, to get into the Setup Mode of PR System One CPAP, follow the directions on this page:

http://www.apneaboard.com/pr-system-one-...structions

Note: You can also obtain a free Clinician Manual by following the instructions HERE. (The Clinician Setup Manual will help you with other settings as well).

Once in Clinician Setup Mode, in the Provider screen, highlight “Setup” and press the wheel. The following Setup screen will appear:

The screen will only show 4 lines at a time. As you rotate the wheel to toggle over different options the screen will slide up and down accordingly. If the text is too long to completely fit on the screen, it will scroll horizontally across the screen when highlighted.

Scroll down to "SYSTEM ONE resistance" - This setting allows you to adjust the level of air pressure relief based on the specific Respironics mask. Each Respironics mask may have a “System One” resistance control setting. System One resistance compensation can be turned off by choosing the setting “0”.

Note: The patient menu system also has access to this setting, if Lock SYSTEM ONE is off.

Below that menu item is where you'll find the option called "Lock SYSTEM ONE" - This enables you to lock the “System One” resistance control setting if you do not want the option to be changed within the patient menu.

Note: If you lock this setting, the patient will see a “lock” icon next to the setting.

Hope this helps.

Zonk, thanks for posting that. I have never messed with that setting because I am using a ResMED mask and the only chart I ever found only listed the Resp masks by name, so I just never bothered. I wonder if there would be any noticeable difference if I set it to x1 since I am using pillows, not the Resp pillows, but a pillow is a pillow! Smile Maybe I'll try it out for a couple nights and see what happens! After everything else that has gone wonky lately, may as well try new setting too! LOL!

It'll lower the pressure by, I'd say, about 0.25 cm H2O.

It's all a gimmick, really. The idea is that the greater the restriction in flow (due to a nasal pillows mask as opposed to say a full face mask) the greater the pressure drop between the machine end of the hose and the patient end of the hose. As you dial up the resistance setting on the PRS1 machine you lower the pressure it delivers, compensating for this effect.

If you've tweaked your pressure settings to maximize your therapy, then you'll have to raise the pressure a tad to make up for the drop you create by turning on the System One Resistance.

Well that got changed back first thing this morning! I could not for the life of me maintain a good seal last night! Those little nasal pillows just kept losing their seal and waking me up! Okay, so now I know! I am back to where I was before that little experiment! But hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained!
