RE: Resmed APAP vs For Her
Your titration study recommended CPAP pressure at 7.0, and it is partially correct. What we did was to look at your Airsense 10 as a bilevel, and effectively, your EPAP is 7.0 with PS 3, resulting in a median pressure of 10/7 (IPAP/EPAP). Your airway is patent against obstructive apnea at 7.0 cm, but your flow limitations and respiratory effort related arousals are clearly much better treated by the limited bilevel pressure with EPAP min of 7.0 and IPAP max of 13.0, PS 3.0. This bilevel capability is exactly why many of us on the forum are adamant that the Resmed CPAP provides better therapy than alternatives like Philips which lacks this important feature. We simply could not have achieved these results.

Looks good... the centrals could have been just rolling over. I think she is doing great.

Great post.
I have a brand new S10 "for her". I'm just getting used to it, and a new chinstrap.

I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

Thanks

I'm just a cpap user like you. I don't give medical advice. I hope to learn from you, and share my experiences with you. 
Seek the advice of a physician before seeking treatment for medical conditions including sleep apnea. Sleep-well
