Have you even contacted a second or even a third DME yet? You have been messing with this for over two weeks now. But I think that w/o the specific pressure stated on the prescription the DME cannot issue the device. What you "know" is not material in the world of FDA rules and regulations. It is sounding to me like your Dr. messed up the prescription and will not admit his/her fallibility.

The DME can call and verify the initial set up parameters I think, but if the Dr will not give them to the DME the DME cannot issue the equipment.

Someone correct me if I am wrong here, but doesn't an ASV need more set up parameters than a biPAP? If that is the case, then the BiPAP titration study is not sufficient to determine the operating parameters of an ASV machine. The Dr may not feel confidant with the auto titration given the OPs difficulties with previous attempts at resolving their sleep bathing issues.

Obviously 14/11 is not a prescription for ASV. That might be your problem. That is a prescription for a fixed bilevel (pressure support 3.0) that could be done by an Autoset. For ASV the supplier is looking for EPAP min IPAP max and a range of PS.
