Writing in on behalf of my brother:

I have CA/OA. I am a 25-year old male weighing 200lbs at a height of 5’11”.

I use a ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV (in ASVAuto mode). My doctor wants me to maintain a Tidal Volume of 200-600 mL. (200 min./400 median/600 90th percentile).

My AirCurve 10 ASV uses a constant “Minute Volume” to manage CA. (The currently recalled Phillips devices use Tidal Volume.)

Question: To what values should I set the four parameters of my AirCurve 10 ASV in order to produce a Tidal Volume range of 200-600 mL? The four parameters are: Min EPAP (4.0-15.0) Max EPAP (4.0-15.0) Min PS (0.0-6.0) Max PS (8.0-20.0)

Thanks.

I am afraid that I don't know enough about an ASV to give you any advice. @CyrusManz here uses an ASV and may be able to help you. Hopefully he checks in.
