What new C/A PAP device to gift

RE: What new C/A PAP device to gift
The Res Med P10 for her is a very good Nasal pillow mask. I, too, find nasal pillow masks to be the most comfortable.

RE: What new C/A PAP device to gift
Corvette, I think the machine you buy will become her primary machine, and the old CPAP Pro will go to Florida. I don't see any reason not to get an Auto CPAP, and since she has been using fixed pressure, there is no advantage of one brand over another. Get an auto CPAP. The Philips Respironics Dreamstation Auto 500 has a CPAP mode, but can be set to a range that might help with the 2.5 or so AHI she has. It can also be set up identically to her machine. We're talking $364 on Amazon. The Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset is about $150 higher at $500, but you get the faster response and EPR. These machines all include humidifier and heated hose, and would be a considerable upgrade from her Pro CFlex + machine (no heated hoses on that unless it is at least a 60 series and has electrical connectors in the outlet). Having a second machine means never worrying about a breakdown.

Great idea. Merry Christmas. The best gift of all is having a CPAP buddy that takes an interest in making it better. I agree with the recommendations of the Resmed Airfit P10 if she tolerates nasal therapy. Nothing is as quiet or minimal.
