VPAP has CPAP capability
I found out today that my VPAP can also be used as a CPAP (set pressure).

I thought the only way to get straight CPAP on anything but a CPAP or CPAP AUtO was on the ASV. Maybe I shouldn't think so much! lol

I have to check out my Elite and see........oh wait, that is all that machine is meant to do!! lol I sent my CPAP Auto back to Apria!
