I have a Dreamstation CPAP. It does not allow me to use APAP. It isn't an option on the therapy menu. I have tried it on Auto trial, so I know the machine can do it. What am I missing here?

Which model?
Model number DSX200xxx or DSX400xxx or DSX500xxx?

Auto trial is limited to 30 nights...there is a way of getting additional chunks of 30 nights but eventually you use up that option and can't get any more nights in apap mode.

Nothing, cpaps (PRO model, REF 400 something) don't have an APAP mode, just the temporary 'trial' mode.

That's why they charge more for the AUTO model, (REF xxx500xxx)

Ok. It is the Pro model, so no auto setting. I wish the rep would have explained that to me. Seems silly.

There is a way of getting additional 30 days of the apap trial unless you have already used them up.
It involves a total rest of all data and complete erasure of your therapy data though...start all over totally fresh.
Not sure how many resets before it simply won't work...used to be 5 resets with the System One machines. Haven't seen any documentation as to how many resets with the DreamStation Pro.
Someone that does this...eventually will run out of resets though.
