"Hi ZolliStar, I've heard before that speech therapy, or singing lessons can help sleep apnea.  The problem at that time was there was no way to determine which exercises help.  Getting research done, rather than anecdotal would be…"

Non-invasion approach that can relieve mild sleep apnea

Some people report that singing -- singing! -- really helps their sleep apnea. Dr. Stephen Park said that myology (which are exercises to strengthen muscles around the inside of one's mouth area) helps some. I think singing would be better.  If you read all the FAQs on this (click below), I think you'll agree that it makes sense for some. Maybe you.http://www.singingforsnorers.com/index.htmSee More

Resmed S8 AutoSet II - No Longer Collecting Data??

Hi All,First off, my apologies for not checking in for a long time.I've been using my Resmed S8 AutoSet II for almost 3 years! I feel great, have lost almost 30 lbs, am no longer sleepy during the day, sleep through the night, and have my short-term memory back.Yay!I've told my doctors that I'm the "poster child" for Sleep Apnea and CPAPs! It's been, and continues to be, such an amazing experience that I want everyone to know!Everything has been going well in CPAP-land, but in the last few…See More

AHI finally under five.

I have been on CPAP since March 2008 and had a good AHI when I started therapy (under 5).Then my AHI started getting worse- for a while it stayed in the 20's, then we got it to the high teens.  Nothing we did would help.  My doctor said it was due to the meds I take.  For a couple of years I just tolerated the high AHI.  I did another sleep study and changed to an ASV machine.  For two years I still had a AHI around 11-13.  Then all of a sudden - a month ago I noticed my AHI was running five or…See More

It seems like I am sick with colds more often when I'm on the CPAP. Anybody experience that.

Resmed Clinicians Manual and Resmed Clinicians Guide

Is there a difference between a Resmed Clincians Manual and a Resmed Clinical Guide?? I have the Resmed VPAP Auto Clinicians Manual in pdf. I also have the Resmed VPAP Auto 25/VPAP ST Clinical Guide in pdf. I suspect they are not the same thing, that the Clincians Manual and the Clinical Guide are two separate publications.

The Resmed VPAP Auto Clinicians Manual is quite detailed about the various "comfort" options and settings. The Resmed VPAP Auto 25/VPAP ST is nowhere near so detailed. I suspect there is a Resmed VPAP Auto 25 Clinicians Manual and an entirely different VPAP Auto 25/VPAP ST Clinical Guide. But I would like confirmation of this if it is so.

Not sure what the difference is. Our units are packed with a Clinician's Guide on CD, but we don't have a Clinician's Manual. Where did you obtain a Clinician's Manual? We also get a Quick Set-Up Guide, but that's just for setting the parameters on the machine. Could you post the pdf of the manual?
Melinda, I can e-mail a pdf of the Resmed VPAP Auto Clincians Manual and a pdf of the Resmed VPAP Auto/VPAP ST Clinical Guide but I don't know how and don't like to post the Clinicians access information publicly.

Assuming you are associated w/a local DME supplier the Clinicians Manual should come in the same box as the unit. It may well be that Resmed is now including the Clinicians Manual on CD instead of an actual booklet in the box when shipping the devices. At least until recently when one purchased a device from an online DME supplier one received both the Resmed Users Manual, the Quick SetUp Guide AND the Resmed Clinicians Manual in the box w/the device.

PM me w/your e-mail addy and I will send you the two pdf files. Do NOT post your e-mail addy publicly.
New to this forum. Unsure how it works, but I am looking for a VPAP II clinicians manual. PDF form would be great. I am a healthcare professional - RRT. Not sure how much is posted on-line and how much privately... so unsure how to give out an email address I don't want everyone to have. You could send it to my professional college and they would get it to me (all via email of course). Their website is www.carta.ca
Appreciate your discretion at not posting the manual publicly. I believe non-professionals should seek out appropriate vendors to aid in these matters. I also appreciate that it can be a pain and many "professionals" are not always that professional. So if others are seeking someone without success. Keep looking there are fantastic people in this field who will do all they can to help and give good advice, education, and support.
Judy,

Would you please send me the Clinicians Manual for the Resmed Auto. Thank you.

Could you please send me the Clinician Manual for the VPAP Auto? I would sure appreciate it as I definitely need some adjustments made. Thank you.
I have on occasion seen ResMed clinician manuals on eBay.
