S9 auto and S8 backup usage.
#1
Just checking in to report my experience using the S9 auto. Began using S9 in November, and seems to be working out fine! Last week I decided to put some hours on my old S8, and was surprised how hard it was to adjust back to a non auto machine.... I had to increase the pressure from my old norm of 16.0 up to 16.6 in order to keep my throat from closing up. I checked the average pressure for the S9 over the past few months, and sure enough it was averaging 16.4! Anyone else have a similar experience? Also wonder how often you guys use your back up machine to ensure it is still working?Thanks

I have an S8 in the closet. I need to get the clinicians manual as it would need pressure adjustment.
Hasn't been used in over a year. I recall I needed to have the PDF open to the menu flowchart to get tot he settings in the S8.
S9 menus are far more easy to navigate.

Just press the Right and Down buttons simultaneously for a few seconds on the S8... Fairly easy to change the pressure setting... (y)
