    CPAP Video & FAQ

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    What is the difference between the M Series Pro and the M Series Plus?
    The difference deals in data collection ability. The Plus lets you track compliance only data. The Pro lets you track efficacy data (e.g. Leak and AHI). The Pro has the EncoreCard Reader to help you track your therapy.

    BiLevel ("BiPAP") machines which record full data:

    CPAP Machines that only record compliance data (hours used) are:

    What does CPAP software do?
    CPAP software allows for the downloading of information from certain CPAP machines. Information on breathing, pressure levels delivered, apneas, etc. is available to help determine the effectiveness of CPAP therapy. Software is not required to operate a CPAP machine. CPAP software provides more data than the information obtained through the on-screen display or SmartCode. Also, the software allows you and your doctor to view any night of recorded data by revealing results on an hour by hour basis.

    Some CPAP manufacturers maintains a proprietary software package that is only compatible with their machines.
