Bored, with old CPAP

After trying unsuccessfully to find some organization to take my circa 1997 ResMed Sullivan Elite V, I decided to dismantle it and recycle the component parts. It turned out that the majority of the machine was plastic; the picture shows the non-plastic components:

I'll probably do the same thing to my circa 2006 F&P machine later.

In a lot of devises there is a small battery that enables things to be stored on a board. On a computer theres one on the motherboard and if you lock up your computer and forget the password you can remove the battery which will wipe the passwords and enable you to access the computer. Shhhh dont tell anyone its a secret Too-funny

On some other kinds of devises there is an internal clock which is run by a battery.

I guess if your machine did not keep track of time, it wouldn't have had a battery. But wouldn't it need one for the usage data at least?

There is volatile and non-volatile memory. Volatile memory requires continual power to maintain the information. Non-volatile memory does not. An example might be the memory stick or thumbdrive. Neither of those items require power to retain the data.

As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

Ahh, this machine did not show usage data as far as I know. I never remember the sleep doc checking for that; they just made sure that the pressure was correct. I still have the boards and will check to see if I can id a battery.

When I took it apart, I realized it was the machine that I drowned many years ago. Laugh-a-lot
