I was wondering if, and I know this is remote, have gone from a DeVilbiss Auto-tritate to the AirSense 10 Autoset?
I've been using the DeVilbiss for the past 4 years and it broke. Ok I may have accidentally gotten water in the machine.
The sensitivity for inhalation and exhalation pressures works better for the DeVilbiss. DeVilbiss uses what is known as Smartflex technology. It decreases exactly 1cm vs a "relative" decrease of the Easy Breath. I find that I am having to pull to get the AirSense to work, especially at first. I don't use a ramp and both machines start at 9, same mask. I've tried with and without the EB but it just doesn't work as well as the DeVilbiss.
I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue or any thoughts in general?
Do you mean to say EPR instead of EB?
ResMed EPR works exactly the same, drop pressure during exhalation. DeVilbiss have an extra setting which determine how fast or slow inhalation pressure kicks-in after exhalation ends (something like that). ResMed had something similar on the S9 and seem to be omitted from the Airsense 10 but wasn't available when the machine on auto mode but wonder if have any useful purpose or even noticeable
yes, I'm sorry EPR. Correct the pressure kicks in immediately so there's never a feeling of needing to pull.
