    Thanks for the information that you sent. I will give my machine more time to get use to its fuction. At the class we were not given a chance to asked questions. We were told who to contact, and what we needed to say when we call. I call over the weekend, and the person left a message that she will be back in her office on the 9 July. I am so happy that I can talk to others to get help on my needs.

    I use the same machine every day and love it. I enjoy getting more involved in the technical side of the machine but it is not necessary for usage. As Rooster11 says, push the button and everything else will happen automatically if the machine has been setup properly for your needs.

    As you have more specific questions, it will be easier for any of us to give you answers. You have the best Auto CPAP machine out there at the moment, you should feel lucky.

    Hi,
    I have one of these machines and absolutely love it! The machine is really very simple to use as long as it was setup correctly by the clinician. The only thing I have changed on mine is the humidifier temperature. It comes set to 80 degrees, and I lowered it to 78 because I prefer the cooler air.
    Your machine should have come with the heated humidifer, heated tubing and the case. All you should have to do is hook up the hose to your mask, fill the humidifier with distilled water and push the start button. This machine does have a ramp up feature, but I am not using it. My pressure range is from 10 - 18, and the 10 is fine for me on startup. This machine makes breathing very easy so I don't really feel any back pressure at all. I am using the Quattro FX mask and have found that it's the best one for me. I can't use the masks that have the forehead support. They all make the bridge of my nose extremely sore. I hope this info. helps out. I agree with the previous post in that your provider should have educated you properly on this machine. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

    Whoever sold you this machine is supposed to help you learn everything about it. You need to call them and have someone show you how to use it. If it came through the mail, call your Sleep Specialist and take the machine there for patient education. You have paid both places for this education and shopuld have received it.

    If you feel you need to directly talk to someone here is the number for ResMed. They can help you by phone.
