Resmed Air10 vs Philips respironics A-flex
Hi, I had a Philips respironics A-flex, CPAP machine with a pressure setting 4-20 for few years and liked it very much. It broike down so Apria got me a new one, this time a Resmed auto air 10. It still has a pressure setting of 4-20, but it is hard to find out if it still is A-flex, CPAP, not a BIPAp. The tech at Apria did not seem to know the answer and APRIA's customer service is notoriously the worse ever! Also the Resmed Air10 documentation is scarce. Anyone knows the anser? I already checked the settings but I am not able to find much.
Any info is highly appreciated.Thanks

RE: Resmed Air10 vs Philips respironics A-flex
A-Flex is just a brand name that Philips use for their exhalation pressure relief function.
Resmed have similar technology, but they call it EPR.

If you have an AirSense 10 AutoSet(?), then that machine does have EPR on it. It is listed under the options menu as "Pressure Relief".

At the top of each forum page, is a link for instructions on how to request by email the clinician guide (setup manual), which explains everything we need to know.

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.
