I told them the pressure settings I used for years before were MIN STARTING 9 - MAX 20. The machine kept it around 11 most of the night.

This morning they called back to tell me that this would be fine, except they will only set the air to 9, no adjusting.

Two things:

1. You can always just set it yourself to whatever you want.

2. Maybe there's some merit to doing it their way. Try it at 9 for awhile and see what happens. It could end up being better for you.

Either way, the important thing is that they give you the S9 Autoset so you have options for future adjustments.

I agree completely. I have a Resmed S8 VPAP Auto that was originally set up as a bilevel CPAP. I tried it in auto mode for a while and my results got worse and it was running at a lower pressure than what had been set as the bilevel. I ended up going back to the bilevel mode and my results improved back to where they had been immediately.

Best Regards,
