ResMed S9 VPAP Adapt SV for Complex SA
I have one full night of use on my new S9 VPAP Adapt SV and I love it: so far only had a total of four events, 3 hypopneas and 1 apnea - no centrals; a first for me. I also had no OSA events. it's definitely far superior to CPAP for comfort and apparently control of Complex SA...

You get a brick (none should be without data capability) until you prove compliance, then you get to choose among available models. My former DME tech told me I wouldn't believe how many machines end up in the closet. But, then maybe they've got a point. If they gave everyone an AUTO, a comfortable machine to use, maybe more folks would use them. If Bilevel and AUTO were not more comfortable why did they include EPR or flex models? I had a VPAP Auto 25 which was quite a versatile machine, it would operate in CPAP, Bilevel and AUTO modes. I used to consider CPAP the most comfortable for me and the pressure changes bothered me, but that is until I got my ASV. The ASV has been a life changer for me. For the first time the past year has been a joy. It took a little while, but my stubborn depression resolved and for the first time I am consistently awake and alert throughout the day.
Pete, will you give us progress reports as you use the new machine?


I am perplexed by your post.

What if you're in my situation where I can't stay asleep on the machine you have no matter what I do and perhaps I would have better luck on a fancier machine? I know of a situation where someone got off of sleeping meds by doing that.

I mean, this wasn't an issue of my hating pap therapy as I greatly looked forward to it. But if you can't sleep on the machine that you have, something is obviously wrong and it always just due to sleep hygiene issues as so many experts want to claim.

There certainly IS an S9 VPAP Adapt SV available from ResMed. Go to [commercial DME link removed] online for just one example of a commercial source and price (before insurance benefit).

Admin note: Thanks for the S9 clarification, Papit. Sorry I had to remove the direct DME link per our rules. In the future, you can simply say "please go to Supplier #10 in the Supplier List". Thanks. -SuperSleeper

Hi papit, welcome to Apnea Board!

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
