change from bipap to cpap on resmed s9 vpap st?
Just acquired a Resmed S9 Vpap ST from a family member who passed away. It is currently set for bipap use. Isn't here a way to change it for cpap use? Thanks if help is available.

Welcome
I'm not sure if the ST can be set to cpap.
I suggest you request the clinician manual by email.
Instructions: http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual
Scroll down until you see your machine.

After you have it, there should be a table of what settings are available.
BTW -- what pressure are you going to set it to? CPAP is fixed pressure, so you need to know what pressure.
It is unwise to just take a "stab in the dark" at the pressure setting.

And/or: go into the clinician's menu and look for mode, if available, change mode to cpap.
You enter the menu by:
