RE: Pressure Setting Sullivan111
Welcome to Apnea Board Kays!

We have a lot of Clinician Setup manuals on our CPAP Clinician Manuals Page, but not that one yet.

That's a very old machine, and I would assume that you'll probably need a manometer to adjust the pressure. CPAP technology has improved dramatically since then and it would be better if you could upgrade to a newer machine if possible.

If anyone finds this setup manual, please let me know also!

Hi Kays, First, Welcome! to the forum. I haven't heard of that particular machine but, I'm fairly new to CPAP therapy, so I can't help you on that one. Good luck on finding the manual to your machine.

Hey Kays, Welcome to the Forum!
Unfortunately I could find nothing on the Sullivan Mk III, other than the fact that they were/are owned by Rescare, Inc. I know, no help at all! While I was looking I did see that someone had a manual for some completely other machine up on ebay, so it might be worth the occasional search on ebay. I did find the process for changing the pressure on a different Sullivan machine and if yours is even nearly as complex and difficult, I would do whatever is necessary to get a newer machine that is easier to work with, but that is just me! There were special tools required and the whole bit. Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.
