my son moving from dreamstation to Vauto - staceyburke - 11-19-2020

When I got my new VAUTO I gave my son my old dreamstation.  He has done better on it than his old old resmed brick.  But he is getting a VAUTO and I hope to get an good idea for the settings to start him off with.  Here are 3 nights, please, help set him up.  Thank you...

There's very good numbers on the OSCAR about treatment. I'd probably transfer what's used but I would drop EPAP from 13 and try 11. You know the Respironics fatal flaw thing about needing pressures set on top of the therapy need thing. The switchover may afford a bit lower pressure and maintain therapy.

I would go lower
Min EPAP = 8 ResMed responds much faster, and that should show us that. This is for 1 night then re-eval.
PS=4 Only because this is a typical starting value for PS, again we can raise it if needed.
Max IPAP any value because he is not running away with pressure increasing.

Yep even better than my suggestion. As is, Max pressure on those charts was 17.6, so it's not maxing out at the top.

Here is his first night, looks good to me.... Any suggestions?


RE: my son moving from dreamstation to Vauto - SarcasticDave94 - 11-23-2020

Looks good to me, no reason to adjust that I could see.

The big question is how do you feel?
