noise when inhaling
#1
What would cause noise when inhaling using respironics system one. I tried two masks and both were the same. Thanks

What was the other mask?

I notice an inhaling noise using the DreamWear mask on Resmed A10 Elite. Different mask, different CPAP machine.

Masks are different. Some you will hear your breathing and some you don't notice at all.

I can hear my inhaling with the DreamWear, but the P10 is silent. Smile

Don't think there is any noise coming from my APAP, but I also run a fan.

Are you using a flex or Cflex. It creates a 2cm h2o difference between inhale and exhale pressure. And the rotor spools up quickly during inhale, giving you the noise.
Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.
