Which of these are the best E0470 or an E0471 o is there another?

Resmed Aircurve 10 ASV  is ok?

BiPAP with backup rate E0471. I guess is the best?

If those were my needs, I would prefer the Resmed Aircurve 10 ASV by a wide margin over the Philips Dreamstation BiPAP Auto SV Advanced.

RE: cheyne stokes
I changed my pressure from automatic of 11-15 to straight 13 with EPR of 1 and my numbers dropped for AHI from 10 to about 2.5.With no cheyne stokes.
Could someone explain why  going to straight 13 would make a difference?

RE: cheyne stokes
The reduction of events in an individual with complex apnea from the use of fixed pressure without EPR or pressure support is fairly common. It is usually right up front in my recommendations when someone wants to optimize results on CPAP. Looks like I need to get back to that approach. your event rate did not look like it would respond this well to fixed pressure, but it did.

Can only hope this isn't a fluke!!!

At one time sleeprider you told me my magic number would be about 13, should of listen to you.
