HELP!! Remstar Plus M w/ CFlex Pressure Programming; How to program a NEW Remstar Plus M

Help Please!

Looking to program the pressure on a new Remstar Plus M series with C Flex.

I've been a CPAP user for close to 10 years... I've used the same trusty remstar for that entire time with a pressure setting of 10. Unfortunately my humidifier died this year.

Even though I'm a long time user of CPAP I have to go for another sleep test before they will sell me a new machine and set the pressure (of course they don't have a problem renting me one temporarily). Unfortunately in my are a sleep test in a minimum of 3 month waiting time.

I was able to buy a Remstar Plus M Series with C Flex for the cost of a rental for the time it would take for a sleep test. I was hoping to program on my own... anybody know how?

Hi greglav - welcome to Apnea Board.

Please go to this web page:

http://www.apneaboard.com/CPAP%20Adjustment.htm

The Clinician Setup Manual for your machine is available on the above page, via direct download. Please read through the page, and I believe the download link is about halfway down the page - the link is labeled "Respironics REMstar Plus M Series".

It is this manual that provides directions for getting into the Clinician Setup Menu, to change pressures and other settings.

Hey guys.. thanks for the responses...

My machine came with a SD card which I wasn't expecting. There is only one arrow key and a know so I suspect this is a brand new model.

Anybody worked with a machine that has a SD card?

Yes, SD cards are a pretty common thing now for storing data. In order to read the data on the card, you'll need an SD card reader (you can get a cheap, but perfectly working one) for around $15 or so on Amazon or just about any store that sells electronics.

Also, for Respironics machines you'll need a copy of the software called EncoreViewer 2.0, which is for Windows computers. It usually sells online for around $100.

Thanks SuperSleeper!

Do you know if the pressure setting is stored on the SD card with a program or is it setup in a similar way to the old machines? I only have one arrow key on my machine and a knob..

Thanks again!

I'm pretty sure it's like my ResMed machine and software, where you can set the pressure two ways: through the PC software, or directly on the machine, via the Clinician Setup Menu.

I have that machine with a data card, and it just requires a combination of holding two buttons down while powering up. Then you can adjust all the settings directly from the machine. You can also few the 7-day and 30-day averages for system leak and AHI numbers (for how many apnea events you are having).

1 arrow key and one knob, are you sure its a REMstar Plus M?

It should look like this, the one on the left. Then lift the lid above the 3 buttons to open up to the two arrow keys and display. Press the two arrow keys at the same time while your plugging it in. I just use the plug in the back of the machine.
