WELCOME! to the forum.!
Hang in there for more responses to your post and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.
Thanks trish6hundred! I've been using C-pap for about 10 years, and am a very compliant user and suffer if I have to sleep even one night with out my machine, which occurs rarely! My current machine is the third I've had, the other two having been a Resmed Elite and a Respironics. I almost feel as if there are too many whistles and bells on my Airsense 10. And, it's kind of creepy in a "big brother" sort of way when it starts sending multiple reports in the middle of the night and during the day! If it turns out that the cause isn't a simple setting adjustment that I can take care of my own, then I'll contact my DME.

There is no "wifi" signal being generated - this machine uses a cell phone and if you are afraid of that being next to you then you had better toss away your own cell phone if you have one.
And it doesn't go on at night when you are sleeping, it calls Resmed about an hour after you get up.
There is NO scientific evidence that electromagnetic radiation at cell or wifi frequencies with the typical low power that is used does you any harm at all. It is not ionizing radiation and does not damage cells or molecules. It does warm tissue slightly, but the sun does that a lot more and so does your indoor heating and your electric lights (which put out MUCH more power at more damaging frequencies).
Your body has a built in thermostat that can handle these things quite well unless you are sick, in which case external heat isn't your problem.
All that aside, your machine is clearly defective and it should be fixed or replaced under warranty.

Actually you know, it is what it isn't.
