Hi Mary. Long time... I seem to remember a couple of years back you gave me some advice on getting my VPAP S tuned up. Well it will be 4 years old in March with 9500 hours and is developing problems. So would you mind repeating you advice?

Thanks, Tom

PS: Lots of changes to this site.

Hi Tom. I just sent the VPAP S back today and got my VPAP Auto back until I can get a loaner bi-level auto. So I am going by memory here .... ach. Never mind. I will PM you the URL for you to download the Clinician's Manual. Then you will have the instructions to access your data yourself straight from the horse's mouth.

The main thing I would caution you on is to WRITE DOWN ON PAPER what appears on EACH screen as you go thru the menus. That way if you accidentally - or intentionally - change your therapy settings you will know what settings were scripted or set when you received it.

How is your therapy going?? Most people do very well on the VPAP S. Its a good device. Unfortunately in my case I'm one of the very few who do NOT do well w/the VPAP pressure transitions in straight bi-level mode. I STRONGLY suspect that it is just because none of my sleep professionals are familiar w/and understand the various "comfort" features that Resmed allows for.

AND - Resmed is NOT offering an S9 VPAP Auto yet. Which is okay as their current bi-level auto is the VPAP Auto 25. A step up from my VPAP Auto be six months (January to July 2008).
