Broken Bipap-Use my old Autosense?

Broken Bipap-Use my old Autosense?
Hi - My Resmed Vauto is completely broken and has to be sent for repair.  Is it possible to manage (better than doing without anything) for the next 3-4 weeks using my old ResMed Autosense?  My settings on the Bipap were about 9-18 with a PS of 2.0. No one has any loaner machines due to the Phillips situation, and my DME won't even answer the phone. My sleep without anything is really horrible and I thought maybe I could use my old machine and get a little sleep.

Thank you for any help!

No problem. The Airsense 10 Autoset will provide the same therapy with setting of 11-20 with EPR full time at 2. You can try lower pressure but this will provide an identical pressure and pressure support to your Vauto.

Yeah!!! That makes me so happy!! Trying to sleep without my machine is not a good experience, to put it very very mildly....

Thanks so much!
