I'm brand new here. I was recently tested, and even more recently diagnosed (Jan 25 met with doctor). I am unemployed and my insurance has a $2000 deductible. I have obtained an old CPAP (Respironics REMstar Plus C-Flex) from a friend. It seems to work and I've ordered the clinicians' manual via e-mail, but used the nearest on-line manual to set the pressure.
This unit doesn't seem to have an SD card, certainly not easily accessible. It does have a data port. Does anybody know what software package I could use to monitor the data? In addition to the Vista box I usually use, I have a Win '98 box that I could hook up.
I know I should replace consumables including the mask, but from what little I've read here, it seems that evaluating a mask would be better done if I could access the data. I phoned Apria, but they didn't want to even re-program the unit because I hadn't bought it from them. (It was purchased from them, but not by me, and I didn't know that tidbit when I was on the phone with them.) I live in the Boulder, CO area.
If anyone has suggestions, please pass them on.
