RE: Which ResMed machines support which modes
The S9 VPAP COPD differs from VPAP S in being able to provide up to 30 cm H2O pressure rather than the limit of 25 cm with VPAP S.

RE: Which ResMed machines support which modes
Thanks SR that saved me some reading. :-)

Maybe the marketing team drank too much coffee that day?

It seems like ResMed had to do a whole bunch of re-branding & manufacturing/logistics changes involving different model-name etchings and stickers and manuals for a somewhat "trivial" difference.

Perhaps the initial offering only had the lower max pressure and then they got customer feedback asking for higher pressure so they had to rush out a COPD upgrade?  Who knows?

EDIT: 25/30 pressure notes added to spreadsheet

EDIT: Updated Ventilators - If you care about the details then check the following:

Mostly complete - only a few S7 models missing

RE: Which ResMed machines support which modes
This is probably the final version of the spreadsheet  unless anyone can help with the odds-and-sods from the S7 series.

I just hooked up my (S9) Lumis Tx to my titration system to see if the firmware would auto-upgrade to add in the AutoSet-For-Her mode - but it didn't do that.

However, when I hooked up my S9-VPAP-Tx titration machine, the firmware DID upgrade to add in the AutoSet-For-Her mode.

Nevertheless, due to the fact that the Lumis Tx writes to an SDCard and does not require a TxLink titration system, it is by far the BEST available (non ventilator) machine from ResMed and implements all the modes (except Autoset-For-Her).

RE: Which ResMed machines support which modes
Is anyone in Australia or Europe reading this who can clarify the differences between these two models for me please?
Lumis 150 VPAP ST 
Lumis 150 VPAP ST-A

I can't figure out the essential differences based on these links
https://www.resmed.com/au/dam/documents/...nz_eng.pdf
https://www.resmed.com/ap/en/healthcare-...ap-st.html

Slightly modified spreadsheet attached. 
I clumped those two models into one row because I cannot tell them apart.

RE: Which ResMed machines support which modes
I think they are the same machine, but the ST-A has alarms:

Resmed Wrote:Alarms for monitoring and confidence
A set of fixed and adjustable alarms is also available to help you
personalise therapy for your patients. Alarms that you can set are
high leak, low minute ventilation, apnoea, non-vented mask and
low Sp02 (when an oximeter is connected).

RE: Which ResMed machines support which modes
Many thanks! :-)

That seems likely according to this fact sheet
https://nebula.wsimg.com/2e5fb581c302de8...oworigin=1

The Alarmed version has a raised orange light on it in the images

EDIT: In the S9 series, the alarm is again orange but the alarm module sits between the machine and the humidifer

RE: Which ResMed machines support which modes
FWIW at least on US versions of the ResMed 10 series ST-A, the power cord connection on the machine has a lock, keeping the cord securely fastened.

RE: Which ResMed machines support which modes
We are working with Mal777 in this thread with his new Lumis 150 ST-A http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...PS-Therapy Interesting to note this machine has iVAPS and an auto EPAP capability. I think the ST lacks iVAPS and offers CPAP, VPAP-S, ST, T and PCM.

RE: Which ResMed machines support which modes
It gets confusing doesn't it?

I have confirmed that the Australian Lumis 150 ST and ST-A both have the same modes (including iVAPS with iBR and AutoEPAP)
The difference is the orange light alarm module

However, in the USA, the AirCurve ST and ST-A are different animals with different modes.
The US ST does not have iVAPS but the US ST-A does.

Why the heck ResMed don't create a spreadsheet like this is a mystery to me.
I'm sure it would help a lot of people see the wood for the trees if they did.
Oh well.. it gives me something to do. ;-)

These are the fact sheets that explain it all for the Australian machines
