Last week I had the change to try the resmed S9 autoset for a week. The first difference I noticed was that the machine is running much more quietly than the Elite. I also got my new nasal mask the Swift FX Nano which I'm liking very much.
Last Friday I had to return the machine to the clinic and I was hoping that the test resulted in switching the elite to an autoset permanently. My AHI was down from an average from around 4.5-5 to 3,75 with the auto(in 1 week). I spoke with the the doctor and she explained to me that the autoset is used to diagnose but not to treat sleep apnea. They use the autoset to prescribe the best pressure settings, but strangely not to treat? Pressure settings are increased from 8.2 to 9.2 continuous pressure,no EPR, no ramp.
So here I'm back with my dear Elite, I still want an autoset but they say it's much more expensive. What should I do ?
