I'll have to go out of pocket to get an S9 machine; and I am on the cusp of doing that. Supplier #2 has some nice open box specials. I want the S9 VPAP Auto. To start off, I would set it to S mode, default the timing and switch sensitivity (as they are now on my S8) and set my IPAP and EPAP pressures as they are now. It would act the same as a VPAP S machine. After getting a handle on the data, I'd probably go Auto.
Honestly - if I am reading it correctly? Your AHI is around '10'? If so, for some of us, we need to consider that as 'good'. Even after nose and mouth surgery, my AHI without my dream machine is in the 60s, and while I have gotten a few '2's and '3's - my usual is '8.4' and the like. (I borrowed the special card reader needed for my machine or the S8 from another member, and have been tracking my data for a few months) - I too would like a newer data-capable machine.
Just a thought? Many members that are getting the "less than 5" AHI numbers may not have such severe OSA...
