Which s9 bi-pap?
Love your family, treat your friend(s) well, and don't waste your time. Everything else is just so much BS.

Welcome to Apnea Board.
Here is a link to order the Clinicians Manual for your machine.
You will need to list the exact name, model of your bipap.
With this manual, you will be able to adjust pressure settings and more.
It also would be a good idea to download the Sleepyhead software so you can see what's going on with your therapy.

The S9 bilevel machines are VPAP S, VPAP ST, and the VPAP Auto. The clinician's manual is combined into one for all the VPAP machines.
Entry into the clinician menu is done by holding down the rotating knob simultaneously with the the button that has two check mark symbols.
Depending upon which VPAP you have, and which mode it is set to run in, there are either 2 or 3 pressures.
jerbear: You may wish to post your present settings for mode, pressure and which VPAP you have before you make any changes.
Then, tell us your plan. Else you may get off course and not be able to get back.

We have members that use and discuss all the variations of bilevel therapy. I use and auto bilevel, as do many folks here, and we frequently have complex and central apnea patients with ASV and ST machine questions.

Hi jerbear, welcome to Apnea Board.
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
