What are important differences between the vauto and the S9 VPAP
#1
What are important differences between the vauto and the S9 VPAP
Would someone help me decide which to buy when I see what look like deals that are available on both out there. I want to try a used one to see if it helps with snores that are frequent, usually 3 to 6 per hour, and those are almost always accompanied by varying body motions (of unknown significance at this moment as I am still working on that problem). Vendor 2 is one of the best possibilities, of course, for either used unit. 


Are there major capability differences that are significant between the Resmed S9 VPAP and AirCurve vauto and within each of those model groups themselves--hardware and firmware updates and feature changes, etc., as in for example,  vsn 1, vsn 2, etc. for each of them? 


What are Medicare's eligibility requirements for coverage of a VPAP, given that my Autosense (plus collar and supinity blocker) has pretty well eliminated apneas (scoreable stuff), but still leaves Flow Limits and Snore high. I hope that I can get a new vauto through M/C when my 5-years are up--if not sooner--with my Autoset, but don't know if that is in the cards. A used vauto or S9 VPAP, for cash now, should take me to that time in September 2020.

I confess not yet taking time to look for what are probably dozens of posts detailing this or that or several features of each machine and the changes. I appeal the AB experts owning these machines who will be aware of the pros and cons of what they use and how they have been updated, etc.

Thanks for reading and considering the request.
