This picture is very small. The holes are all the way around the place where your nose would poke out if the elbow for the hose was not there. The holes are like very small slits.

I have had the machine for 90 days. It is going to be returned and Medicare and my secondary are going to get a refund. There is something wrong with the macine as well. It has a repair code on it, something is wrong with the "computer" in the machine. I just figured this out.

Make sure the replacement machine is data capable machine such as S9 AutoSet or PRS1 Auto
S9 AutoSet and Elite are data capable machines
Avoid S9 Escape models such as S9 Escape and Escape Auto
There is nothing S9 about the Escape models, just the looks but looks can be deceiving
Next to stop/start button would say the model name

Avoid any PRS1 machine with Plus in the name and SE models
PR machines are much confusing ... Machines with numbers 450/460 or above are data capable machines
Model number printed on the label at the base of the machine

Best of luck

I thought your profile said "Swift FX," not "Mirage." Sorry about that.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
