ResMed S9 Adapt SV Technology ???
#1
Can someone explain the technological difference(s) of the ResMed S9 Adapt SV over the other VPAP/BiPaP machines out there ?

I know is has a servo-ventilator already but HOW does it work ?

Is this difference(s) the sole reason these machines cost twice as much as the others ?

TIA.

Quote:Adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV)

Adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV) modes of therapy have been developed to manage this central sleep apnea and complex sleep apnea. Studies have demonstrated marginally superior performance of the adaptive servo ventilators in treating Cheyne-Stokes respiration.

Adaptive-servo ventilation adapt to the patient’s ventilatory needs on a breath-by-breath basis, automatically calculating a target ventilation and adjusts the pressure support to achieve it.
Is the difference(s) just a software (logarithm) then or what ?
