Brick?
#1
Hello folks,

I downloaded the Sleepyhead software and read my SDcard. I got some overview stats and graphs (although I found it odd that the graph for AHI reported 0 events when my MyAir account reported 2 for last night). However, when I click on Daily I get a big red frowny face and the word Brick! And the comment that my machine doesn't record any investing data. Is that because the AirSense 10 is a strait CPAP rather than an auto correcting machine (APAP?)?

Is there any way I can tell my AirSense 10 to record more data?

Thanks!

Hi allypsych,
It may be your SD card. ResMed likes you to use the card that is supplied by them. This is their sites thinking on SD cards. http://www.resmed.com/epn/en/commercial-...cards.html That being said you should be able to use a standard SD card but not a high speed card per their recommendation.

There are 4 versions of the ResMed AirSense 10. If you have the CPAP version, then you truly have a brick; and no detailed data can be extracted from it.
Here's a description of the 4 ResMed AirSense 10's that I stole from a post by DeepBreathing:
============
Airsense 10 CPAP - http://www.resmed.com/au/en/healthcare-p...-cpap.html The bottom of the range. Single fixed pressure which provides compliance, AHI and leak data reporting. I wouldn't recommend this machine as it puts some stringent limits on how you can manage your therapy.

Airsense 10 Elite - http://www.resmed.com/au/en/healthcare-p...elite.html Still a fixed pressure machine, but with full data reporting. This is important to troubleshoot and fine tune your therapy.

Airsense 10 Autoset - http://www.resmed.com/au/en/healthcare-p...toset.html This is almost as good as it gets for obstructive apnea treatment. You can set a maximum and minimum pressure and the machine will adjust itself within that range to optimise your treatment. Fully data capable.

Airsense 10 Autoset for Her http://www.resmed.com/au/en/healthcare-p...r-her.html In a fetching shade of lilac Smile This machine has additional algorithms designed to better suit the female physiology. It also has even better data reporting than the straight Autoset. There's no reason a male can't use this machine - just so long as you don't mind the girly appearance.

Apart from the "for Her" all these machines look exactly the same but the model name is printed under the Airsense 10 label at the bottom right corner of the machine body. The two Autoset machines can be used as either variable pressure or fixed pressure - even if you don't need variable pressure now you might in future. Being auto-titrating they also perform a mini-sleep test every night seeking for an optimum pressure range. This has the advantage of keeping the pressure no higher than needed, which can be a distinct comfort factor.

Well, that answers my question. Mine says CPAP on it... I wonder if I can request the Autoset from the HomeCare place or if I need a new prescription. My first night with the new nasal mask was ok, mask is comfortable, but my chest was sore after 2 hours and I took it off. It was hard to breath out at 15 pressure.

allynpsych,
Your HomeCare provider would probably exchange it if you call your doctor and ask him for a new script stating Auto Cpap or more specific, AirSense 10 AutoSet.
If you haven't had the machine very long, I would call sooner than later.
