[Equipment] Resistance Control setting for Resmed AirFit F20
#1
Resistance Control setting for Resmed AirFit F20
I've been digging through the provider menu for my new DS2, and found the "Mask Type" (apparently what Philips used to call Resistance Control) section which I can set to Off, X1, X2, X3, X4, or X5.

I have found lists online of the appropriate values for Philips masks, but I use a Resmed for which I have not found an appropriate setting.  Anyone figured out what philips mask has a similar vent rate to the Resmed AirFit F20 full face mask, so I can use that setting?

I used to use X1 for that.  Found that it made very little difference.

I notice that the philips published settings:

[DME Link Removed] Guide for Mask settings for System One Resistance Control
[Image: attachment.php?aid=39783]
seem to have X1 type for the larger masks, and the higher X numbers for smaller masks.

So since my large-cushion Resmed Airfit F20 is big, I think X1 is what I will use.

Where Resmed uses a mask setting, Philips CPAPs use a resistance setting.
