Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
#21
RE: Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
Ask the doc "what settings are you scripting that the ResMed does not have?"

ResMed ASV has EPAP, PS and Auto filled IPAP based on EPAP and PS. Humidity and heated hose also. Ramp but I'd not use it.

So what else doctor quack?

RE: Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
We have consistently seen better therapy on the Resmed ASV. The setting the doctor included is a backup rate for breaths per minute (BPM) which can be done on the Philips. The Resmed uses the last 90 seconds of spontaneous breathing rate to set its rate and minute vent targets. It is all done automatically, and the only setting on an Aircurve 10 ASV is the Mode, EPAP min, EPAP max, PS min and PS max. It still works better and is more comfortable and generally better efficacy. Keep asking for the Resmed and talk to the doctor. Get a copy of the Rx and let us know what it is. We can help you argue.

RE: Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
Yep the ResMed ASV does the backup rate automatically. Yeah but Dr. McQuack can't "set" it so the Respironics that's a lesser therapy machine makes imperfect sense.

If it was like my first Apria RT on setting up my ASV, well I dunno how to set it so I'll guess.

(04-28-2019, 09:53 PM)DeepBreathing Wrote: I think the majority of people find the Resmed is both more efficacious and more comfortable. The Philips has a number of manual settings which the Resmed takes care of automatically, so if you do end up with the Philips ensure that you work with your tech to optimise all the settings, not just pressure.

Some users have found the Resmed doesn't give good results but the Philips does, so in the end it's all down to the way the machine works for you. But in your shoes I'd start with the Resmed which seems to have a higher probability of success.

My first BiPAP was a Respironics Dreamstation, and it worked great, and still does. A year later I suffered a terrible injury and had to sleep in my recliner, so I bought a second machine, Resmed ASV from Supplier #2. This machine is the previous model (S9), although mine was barely used. I set it up the same as my Dreamstation, as far as possible (slightly different features), and I got it so that my AHIs were just as good, but I found it very uncomfortable. It's still sitting net to the recliner, and I decided that it's a bit more compact, so if I need to travel that's the one I'll take with me. Otherwise, I'm back to my bed with the Dreamstation.

The common wisdom is that Resmed is superior to Respironics, but I'd like to emphasize your second paragraph. I'm one of the ones who finds that Respironics is far better.

RE: Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
Greetings!
You might want to ask your doctor what the setting is that made him choose that particular machine.
As for getting info, here are the two websites with specs:

hope this helps.

RE: Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
In order to obtain my first ASV machine, my sleep doctor said I had to take a sleep test using the ASV technology.  That test was done using a Respironics ASV machine.  At that time, I had been used to using a ResMed Bilevel Aircurve machine.  I came away from the test noticing a big difference in the ResMed machine and the Respironics machine.  That difference was an ever so slight delay in the incoming air when you inhale on the Respironic machine.  It was so noticeable that I had trouble getting a good night's sleep during the test.  When you inhale on the ResMed machine, the incoming breath is instant and feels normal.  Not so with the Respironics.

RE: Resmed ASV vs Respironics ASV
I've been told by my current Lincare RT that there are noticable breath pattern differences for ResMed vs Respironics and that if you're used to whichever brand then it's a good idea to stick with that brand when going to a new or higher level machine.
