Apologies in advance for starting a new thread on this but now I have a bigger concern based on those replies:
Is data accurate for Swift / P10 mask wearers that use PRS/Dreamstation machines?
If the "X" setting on the Phillips machines are so significant, and there is no direct correlation to a non-Phillips mask, then are the rest of the AHI and other measurements on non-Phillips masks still correct?
Main concern being the machine being able to detect and react appropriately.
Or maybe this is just a simple over concerned newbie/OCD question, so maybe just enjoy the pressure, sleep well and move on?
I came across this:
For my P10, I set the resistance the same as for the similar size Philips nasal pillow mask. The PR published settings are:
OptiLife Pillows – petite X3
Pillows – small X4
Pillows – medium X2
Pillows – large X1
Since I use P10 with Medium cushions, I used the setting of 2.
Does it make a real difference? I simply don't know. All I know is that I get effective treatment with the settings I use.
Everything I post on this board is nothing more than an opinion expressed by an apneak. Normally, it's based on facts and experience but sometimes, I may get things wrong or not have all the facts.
I reserve the right to change my mind. Why? Because tomorrow I may know better.
I have previously contacted PR with this particular question and their reply to me was that if you weren't using a PR mask that you should leave the setting off.
