Excellent. How did you find setting it up, in terms of your pressure settings, etc?

Wasn't an issue at all. 5 mins "research" on Youtube showed me how to get into the clinical menu on the machine. I just went into this menu on the rental machine and copied settings across to the new one. The most important are the pressure settings (which I knew from prescription anyway) the rest are mainly comfort settings - ramp time / humidifier settings / tube temp etc I would imagine, if you are not comfortable doing this, and if you know your pressure settings that the store would set it up with relevant settings before despatch - drop them a mail to confirm obviously.

Great, sounds no more complicated than the S9 Autoset, which I find pretty straightforward. Even in the context of sleep apnea, I do love a new gadget!

Did you have to 'add on' the water chamber ie. was it extra?

You might have had the accessories already did you? I'd be moving from a different brand so I'd probably need to buy all these extras too, maybe even tube & mask? or is the tube connection standardized?

I had the heated tube / mask / humidifier water chamber as these were supplied FOC as "consumables" with the rental machine - these items therefore did not need to be returned under my rental contract.
With regard to tube connection I honestly don't know if they are interchangeable as I have never used any other machine - if you email supplier with query I'm sure you would get a prompt response.

Hi everyone, just this week been diagnosed with moderate to severe sleep apnea. 27 episodes per hour. Waiting on a call back from consultant to discuss prognosis, presume I'll be using a cpap machine. Are the results as good as I'm hearing? I'd give anything to not be constantly tired.

More often that not, it results in me taking the mask off for the night. I'm wondering if there's actually something wrong with the machine.

Has anyone else experienced that?
Yes it happens to me quite a lot. My airflow is 16 and I would reach that most nights so the mask lifting off my face is common. I hardly notice now I just adjust the mask and the pressure drops a bit once im breathing normally.

Yep.

Perhaps it is ramping up too quick? By the time it's at my max (12) I'm asleep. If I wake in the night then it seems really powerful.

Advice is reset ramping while you get back to sleep.

And tighten it up.

Not my experience at all. I couldn't sleep with it, felt much, much worse than before I started and eventually gave it up after 3 months of feeling dog rough. My score was 41.
