Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
#11
RE: Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
This may be a bit off topic, but I'm using a Respironics DreamStation BiPap autosv, and I wear a Resmed AirTouich F20 mask. The DraemStatioon wants me to enter the setting for the Mask Type based on the Mask Resistance. There is nothing on the packaging of my mask that indicates what the Mask Resistance is. Any assistance?

With a non Philips mask set the resistance to 0

RE: Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
Which ASV to ask for and why?

For most, the ResMed 10 ASV gives better results compared to Respironics. The main difference is in the algorithm, it operates smoother and more natural for most. Side note between the two is that the Respironics has more settings whereas the ResMed has 4 therapy oriented settings. On that ResMed, IPAP is algorithm controlled based on that moments EPAP and PS.

Some users will actually do better on Respironics, but it seems the majority can’t lose by choosing ResMed.

I am on the ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV also. I am quite impressed with how well works in spite of mask leakage. Best wishes.

Did you get the ResMed? Hope it is going well for you - 
for me, they gave me an overnight sleep study using both ResMed ASV and Respironic ASV, and it showed that I did much better with the ResMed, and that is how I was able to get the ResMed AirCurve ASV, since my Respironics ASV I was using was only 3 years old . . .

I did get a Dr and technician that both agreed that this was the best machine for me and were very knowledgeable on its function. At first for me, I could not get more then 4 hours of sleep using my ASV but after a while my body and brain became accustom to getting real sleep and am now able to sleep for at least seven or eight hours and feel great in the morning, like I have really slept all that time!  
Just my 2 cents on my ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV. I have not used any other ASV.

Yes, I got the Resmed and it is working very well for me. AHI's averaging less than 2 with some mask leaks. Less than 1 if no leaks. Probably will take me a while to figure out what works best without leaking. Trying different masks but still have not found the perfect solution.

That's great to know - the mask can be a challenge to find out what works best- for me - the airlift P10 works well.

FWIW I believe the mask choice will be lots harder than choosing the machine brand.

Congrats on getting your ResMed.
