Ok, thanks for the help, usually my 95% is 11cm and under. So if i bump the EPAP up to 6 and keep the ps at 10 it will be the lowest min it will go? If the IPAP is 10 max won't it not go past that? I am trying to use this as an apap with a little more relief on the exhale.

CPAP626, I'm tempted to split your posts out to a separate thread because you are deep into asking personal therapy questions related to your Vauto, in a thread intended for compare Resmed and Philips CPAPs.   The question above has a fundamental misunderstanding of how the settings work.  Can we please split this out and move to a new thread?

Based on everyones reviews and impute, I thought I was set on the Dreamstation as my main machine, but I now am going to give my AirCurve another chance! They are both great machines! I apologize again for the hijack and I will create a new thread for more specific questions related to my settings.

I'd opt to ok the split. You've already got some thread data, be a shame to waste it and start over.

Disposable thread if it gets split.

Now I'm trying to decide between a new AS10 and the Respironics.  

Anyone here have any info which will help make this decision?

Thanks.

I've been using a dreamstation for the last 4 years and have absolutely loved it. It recently started to make some strange popping
sounds so I set out to get a new machine before mine potentially crashed. I tried 2 new machines and neither was as quiet as my old machine.
Both made a 'whirring' kind of sound while being operated. 

I returned those and purchased a new Resmed Airsense 10 along with another dreamstation. I returned the new dreamstation again within a 15 day trial period for the same 'whirring' noise it made when in use.. 

I used the new Airsense 10 and it gave me pretty good results. My AHI was was below 1, but I didn't feel as fresh as when I used my old dreamstation. I got some advice on this forum about using the 'Soft' setting on the Airsense 10 to improve your results. I've applied the soft setting but haven't used the machine again to test it out.

Turns out my old dreamstation still works fine, and I had been experiencing some 'rain-out' issue in the hose which cleared itself up a few days later.

So, I'm keeping the Airsense 10 as a backup machine and possible travel machine. Nothing has been better than my old dreamstation.
It's been the quietest machine of all including the new ones I tested.

I'm beginning to wonder if Phillips has changed something in their manufacturing process or are using different components in their machines.

So, in conclusion I'll be using my 'Old Dreamstation' till it dies, and hopefully be able to get acustomed to the Airsense (which I think has great potential when I get it completely dialed in).

Hope this helps.  Smile
