Compliance times on Philips Dreamstation
I just started using my CPAP machine about a week ago, and so far found this forum a valuable resource!

I was wondering if anyone knows about what timetables the Philips DreamStation uses when measuring compliance time. I found that most machines start the day at 12 noon and ends at 11:59am the next day. But my machine is recording something different. Say for example I take a nap from 11:30am to 2:00pm, after sleeping 8 hours the prior night. My machine says I used it for 10.5 hours. Did my machine include this session entirely the prior nights data?

Thanks for your help!

RE: Compliance times on Philips Dreamstation
it all averages out in the end. all the compliance report shows is number of hours per 'day' whatever that is... it doesn't care how those hours are arranged.

The short answer is "Yes"---the PR's LCD data reflects all the data recorded in the last 24 hour "day".
