Respironics System One
#1
REMstar Pro and/or REMstar Auto

Regarding the two CPAP machines above, it appears to me that both machines collect all data and both are good machines, nonetheless since I am such a novice at this I thought I would ask first. Also, would one be prefered over the other?

Thank you.

Well I got the these:

Machine: Respironics DS950HS
Mask Type: Full face mask
Mask Make & Model: Respironics FitLife FFM
Humidifier: Respironics
CPAP Pressure: 9/15
CPAP Software: SleepyHead

My reasons were: The Respironics is able to report obstruction AND OPEN AIR WAY events.

And as I have complex apnea which is open air way events I want to know this information.
The other is it is made here in the USA and the other is made in Australia and it is hard to phone them for tech support.

Both are data capable machines
Auto does what Pro (CPAP) can do and auto-adjust (APAP) ... two machines in one
CPAP is long term investment, its nice to be able check if over time pressure needs has changed and able to adjust accordingly
Cost wise .. few $$$ more ... unfortunately not in Australia

Not all S9 made in Australia, Some made in Singapore
S9 AutoSet score central sleep apnea events too and shows AHI breakdown type of events on LCD sleep report
ResScan and SleepyHead software support S9

Your machine BiPAP AutoSV DS950HS is more than just CPAP/APAP ... designed to treat complex sleep-disordered breathing

The PRS1 Pro is a fine manual CPAP machine with full data.

The PRS1 Auto will do everything the Pro will do plus a few things more. Absolutely worth the extra money if you're paying out of pocket. Can be set to manual CPAP to function just like the PRO.

I believe the DS950/960/BiPAP Auto SV advanced is mostly for central or complex apnea and costs a lot more. It's not necessarily "better" if you don't have central apnea.
Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
