RE: need help!!
What is the prescribed pressure you're trying to set? What type of s9 ( escape,elite, autoset). The manual section at the top of the page should help you some.

Welcome.

Tell us what it says next to the power button on your your S9 machine.

The CPAP Setup Manuals link at the top of the page has links to info on setting the pressure on the machine.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.
Useful links.
Click here for information on the main alternative to CPAP.
If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Hi medp61,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
What S9 do you have, what was the pressure from your sleep study?
Much success to you as you set your machine up and start CPAP therapy.

How nice of your family! If you do a search under youtube Resmed S9 Autoset CPAP - Critical information you must know !! Seriously - (Part 7 of 8), there is a video that explains the settings. Also, you can order the clinician booklet from this site.

Good luck!
