congrats on your new autoset Sleep-well

Not with six of the grandchildren here! They were hungry tonight even though Mom & Dad did all the work! Plus its a long way from here to there, might be stale by the time it arrived!

See what I started?:grin:
Things went really well today, finally! The S9 AutoSet is here and ready for tonight, my son-in-law hooked up a overhead hose holder for me, and now that I'm past this point I'll share some more in my comments section and update my profile. No complaints on my end as compliance is surely not an issue for me but they did put a Modem on my AutoSet, I don't think its getting a signal though because its still blinking blue. The RT said it will stay solid blue when its working properly. I'm not in a good area for wireless except for Verizon, not sure who they use. I'm thinking I'll skip some questions tonight, its been a loooong day! Thanks again for all replies!!!

Congrats, Tim! So much for that earlier DME story about insurance not providing pre-approval for an Autoset machine. Now, you can turn your attention on how to understand the machine's data.

Thank you Dawei, Isn't that the truth, it is so sad what some DME's will stoop to while ignoring our therapy needs. This has been a real eye opener!
Now about those questions about understanding my machines dataDont-knowDielaughing
I'll start another thread so it can benefit others and we can move past this one as long as my new DME works out. My insurance company assured me this morning they are still available should anything else be needed!

Thank you Trish, I'm thinking I must have slept better as this was the first time my Pulse Oximeter fell off during the night! LOL, I do feel better and very curious what the data will show so getting ready to start a new thread after searching first for some answers.
