Some of the readings on my machine are identified as:

SW
BID
VID
RID
HID

But I haven't been able to find out what these mean.
Any help?

Hey thanks. I printed out the clinician manual for my machine and added this information to the inside cover. I may not be new to the CPAP but I am quite new to something that performs tasks other than just turning on and off (R.I.P. Healthdyne Tranquility Quest, 1997-2012).

Schematics ain't a word. Geesh, and I thought you was an edumacated righter or somthin' like that.... Bigwink

Reminds me of a quote from Throw Mamma From The Train:

Larry: "Remember, a writer writes always".

and also "The night was moist..."

Ah, I love quoting the classics. I'm kind of sentimental that way... Blowing-nose


...and NO, I haven't been drinking... I'm just weird. Too-funny

Are you PWD? (posting while drunk)

Schematics is so a word. And to keep going OT, I got a sign in my office: Keep Clam and Proofread.

Now, back on topic, everyone is welcome to PM me with more acronyms-slash-abbreviations (and what they mean) and I'll add them to the wiki article.
