I have been using a CPAP machine for about many years. Most of my recent CPAP machines have had an auto on and auto off feature that is very convenient. My newest machine is the ResMed Air Sense 10 Autoset unit and i really like it with one exception. The "auto off" feature will not function while the Smart Start feature is activated. My CPAP provider has been contacted and they are not able to help me.
After some experiments, I have found that the auto off feature will only operate IF the EFR is disabled. I really like the EFR feature as it reduces mask fit problems.
Has anyone had this problem with the Air Sense 10 Autoset unit and found a solution to the auto off issue when the EFR is activated?
Any comments would be appreciated.
I seem to recall that the auto shut-off doesn't work with some mask types. I can't recall which, however. I use a nasal mask (Wisp), so I tried the auto shut-off after my afternoon nap. I do use the EPR, set to 3. It took many seconds (30?), but it did shut off. My usual practice is to use the auto start, but use the top button to shut off manually when I wake up. That's because it always looks like a very large leak on the leak graph, which messes up the scale for the rest of the night. I'm fussy that way.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Much success to you as you continue your CPAP therapy and hang in there for more responses to your post.
