I am wondering what people's experiences have been with the Dreamstation. I was just set up with it after many years with the Remstar Bipap ASV. I use the same mask and with every breath, the Dreamstation pushes and pulls against my face. I've tried every manner of adjustments I can think of and nothing makes a difference. I'm about ready to give up on it but am curious to know if anyone else has experienced this with the Dreamstation?

Did your old machine look like this legacy series or like this PR series? Newer models have a function called Bi-Flex, which may be causing what you describe. If you take it back where you got it, they should be able to check if it is on and turn it off for you without any trouble. It is not dangerous in any way to turn it off, and may indeed improve your treatment.
