Resmed ASV not going to max pressure
#1
Resmed ASV not going to max pressure
I recently bought a used Resmed Aircurve 10 because my other one had to be returned with a change in my insurance.  The used one I have now doesn't go to the max pressure.  It always stays within 5 numbers of the min ps.  My settings are:

EPAP 5
Min PS 3
Max PS 10

With the min ps at 3 the max ps will only go to 8.  If I change the min ps to 5, then the max will go to 10.  Any ideas as to why the max ps will not go 5 numbers above the min ps?

RE: Resmed ASV not going to max pressure
Hi bjelmer!  -  Welcome
What model AirCurve do you have?  Your description suggest that you have a VAuto, but your listed settings suggest an ASV.

Please check the image for a better identification.

[should say "VAuto, S, ST or ASV"]

You may also verify by listing the model number on the CPAP's back. If you're using the humidifier and check the number, I recommend that you first remove the tank.

The best way for us to help is if you download the free OSCAR software and submit a session of detailed daily data. These charts give us both the settings and response and will usually explain any unexpected behavior in the machine.
