"Update on DreamMapper: I sent an email to DreamMapper (as indicated in the App) with a pic of the back of the machine showing the serial number. They replied after a couple of days saying that I can now add my DreamStation Go Travel machine as a…"
"Very interesting conversation; many thanks.
Philips says (website) the machines are expected to last about 5 years. We’ll see.
I think that if you travel a lot and/or for extended periods you need something very portable. if you are away…"
Yes, it is a very old fashioned way of doing business. Apple used to do the same years ago until they realised that people travel and use the Internet, and now all their products cost more or less the same globally. Furthermore, as we still…"
I ordered a DreamStation Go Auto CPAP machine from the CPAP Shop in the US - as advised on the Philips US website.The machine is not available in the UK and I wanted it for travelling - I have a DreamStation with humidifier from the NHS but…"
I had the same problem until I disvovered that the setting for the heating was “adaptive” (works following a piece of software that switches the humidifier on/off during the night), as opposed to “fixed”. I changed…"
There are several reviews on YouTube about the Amara; the results are very mixed. I tried it and I found that it
leaked too much; a real pity as the idea is very good. I then tried the ResMed F-20 (full-face, no forehead support) and…"
"I know exactly what you mean Linda. It's good when people purchase them when unsure of their size, but wasteful otherwise. You can send them to our Hope2Sleep Charity who run this forum and address is on the contact…"
when I request a replacement medium Phillips Respironics mask from my NHS provider I am given a pack that includes all size masks and new headgear. I have queried this and have been advised this is how they are supplied. It seems a terrible waste.…See More
"I have finally found the answer
I have increased the EPR to 3
This has kept my pressure below 14 for the last 3 days .
Im very annoyed that the hospital and Resmed had not increased this
For some reason increasing the EPR has reduced the…"
"Its me not the machine.
The S9 has been checked by Resmed and no fault was found but the circuit board was changed as a precaution.
I have used another S9 but had the same problem.
I have been told by the hospital that despite my AHI being under 1…"
"Don't rule out a fault with the machine or restricted airflow.
I would also not rule out that you might be one of the few that needs a different machine.
In any case, it should not go to 20 and sit there, I would get it checked or replaced.
"Before I make a decision I am going to try something different.
I have noticed that when it goes up to 20 most times it has done so when the pressure has dropped to minimum which is 12 at present.
I will increase the minimum pressure to 14 so…"
"That is hard to believe. A pressure of 20 is quite high and very few require that amount of pressure.
1 ltr/min is nothing, the machine should cope with that without any problems at all.
A lot of people get mixed up with pressure and…"
"Don't know what machine ou have, but a heated hose can help a lot.
You can get them as a stand alone but it is not ideal.
If your machine has the facility for a heated hose it might be worth the investment.
Heating the room will help."
"There are plenty on the market, but one thing I would make sure it did was to store the data for printing or downloading.
There are plenty that say they do this and don't, so be aware of buying off Amazon or Ebay."

I have for sale a converter which allows the S9 machine, which requires a 24v supply, to run from a vehicle 12v or 24v DC socket, or direct from a 12v battery. The converter can power a humidifier and heated tube as well as the CPAP machine,…See More
