Therapy difference between AS11 and AS10
Therapy difference between AS11 and AS10
About 2 months ago, it was time to replace the AS10 with over 19k running hours, and since I'd paid out the insurance deductible for the year (usually doesn't happen), I opted to use the DME affiliated with the doctor and insurance (Lincare) and get the AS11, which they were able to supply promptly.  When I put it into service there was a distinct difference in the maximum and average pressures throughout the nights as shown in the attached graphs.  These are from ResScan, as this is the one thing that I use (and may be the only thing) that it does better than OSCAR (for some reason, OSCAR shows the device maximum setting on the summary graphs instead of the maximum observed pressure).
FYI, I am a 9-13, EPR 2 kinda person, rarely see above 1 AHI, usually hovering around 0.5 or lower.  (Pay no attention to New Year's day...)
Submitting this for discussion, could be the algorithm, could be the machine replaced was low on Cheerios.  I can supply other information for those interested.

That is summary info. Are you looking for someplace to start or do you want to Dial it in?

The daily detailed charts help us far more than you think when it comes to finding your optimum pressure.

No, sorry if I wasn't clear.
The AS11 was placed into service right where that drop in pressure occurred (December 19th). Don't really have a reason to change my settings, I was just intrigued by the difference between the two machines and thought others might be as well.
