S9 setup
#1
Hi,
I've just been given a Resmed s9 for a week after I did a sleep survey. I got 52 aps per hour. I noticed the machine is set up for nasal mask but I have been given a full face mask. Will this make any difference?

Since this is only a temp machine that you will be using for 1 week, it is my opinion that it really won't matter. When you get your permanent machine next week you can select the right mask. If it concerns you, you can get the clinician's manual and set the proper mask. The link is at the top ^

Welcome

It really should be set for the type mask being used. The machine uses this information to estimate vent rate; and it may figure into the apnea scoring algorithm which uses a sonar like technique to look at reflected wave to determine if an apnea is obstructive or open airway.

Hi Johnnysinc,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
It probably would be a good idea to set your machine to the right mask setting.
Hang in there for more answers to your question and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.

Depend on the model, whether AutoSet, Elite, Escape Auto or Escape
All looks the same, but the Escapes are different as night and day in comparison to the other two

Elite is data capable fixed pressure machine, Autoset is data capable too but does both ways, fixed and variable (2 machines in 1)
Escape is a lemon, Escape Auto is APAP but still a lemon

ResMed newer machine "AirSense 10"

[should say "AutoSet, AutoSet for Her, Elite or CPAP"]

Mask setting should be set to patient.

Tap the settings button (it looks like it has two check marks on it).
Turn the big knob to select mask type.
Tap the silver part of the big knob. The mask type line should now be blue (or is it orange it changes to?)
Turn knob to select the right type of mask.
Tap knob to confirm selection. It will change color again.
Done

Thanks for the replies. I asked about it at the clinic and it's pretty much as justMongo says. I have now been given an s9 elite with humidifier that's been set to 17. Now to deal with the farting mask and strap marks.

You've my sympathy, not easy but can be done
You'll need SleepyHead to have an idea of what is going on and to point to any concern might have with your doctor at the next follow-up
Good luck

Which Quattro mask do you have?

It's a quattro full facemask. When it ramps up to 17 it wants to lift off my face. Strapping it tighter helps with the leaks but leaves my face a mess. I had to take it off halfway through the night last night as my face was too sore. It seems like the seem material is too pliable and struggles at the higher pressure. Any recommendations?
