S9 Elite EPR Settings

It could be defective and if its a new machine try to exchanged it with either S9 Elite or S9 AutoSet both are full data capable machines bc the S9 Escape only shows compliance data (hours used) to meet insurance requirement and don,t have mask fit feature, leak, AHI or CSA detection.
This S9 setup explain it all, make sure to watch the video

My elite is set for the following
Pressure: 12 (found in clinical settings)
EPR: full-time (found in clinical settings)
EPR level: patient (found in clinical settings)
Ramp time: 15 minutes (patient settings)
EPR Inhale: Med (clinical settings)
EPR level: 3 (patient settings)
Tube heat: 80
Humidity: Auto

With my machine set this way it feels like natural breathing to me using a simplus oral nasal mask. With the inhale set at medium I don't get aerophagia like I used to because I think set on fast was forcing air a little too quickly. My AHI has consistently been less than 1.0 and most nights 0.0. Resmed makes a good machine, once you get all the settings in harmony it's even better.

Good luck

I'm not seeing the "EPR Inhale: Med" setting in my AutoSet anywhere (normal or clinician menus). Sounds like a neat feature, maybe something only available on the straight CAPs?
