Which model machine would you take?
Phillips Respironics System One Auto BiPap (760P) with Humidifier and Heated Hose (New Machine)
Phillips Respironics System One BiPap AutoSV (950P) with Humidifier (No Heated Hose) - (Machine has 1200 hours on it) I'd order the rainout control product.
I have a whacked out DME who doesn't really know what they are doing.
Sleep Study AHI was in 70's (Severe OSA and CA) - I've tried both machines and get good results with both.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
I'm curious, did you have a sleep study and if so, did they determine that you needed an ASV machine? I'm not sure I would take the ASV machine you mentioned in your post, because it has so many hours on it.
Hang in there for other suggestions and much success to you with your CPAP therapy and your machine decision.
I did have a sleep study done and a bipap was indicated. When I went to the DME, they gave me the ASV and told me that it was a better unit. It appeared to be new and never told me it wasn't. I then went into the clinicians menu and it showed 1200 hours of usage.
I was on a 760P auto bipap and was averaging 4-5 AHI due to a number of CA and CSRs. I need a very high level of pressure at times but not for very long, it seems.
Since I went on the ASV, I'm down to AHI of .8 to 1.2
Like you said, concerned about the hours but I know if I raise a stink they will give me a 760 (which I already have - bought it on my own).
