Deletion of data files from SD after 30-days
My ReMed S9 Auto machine starts deleting data file from the top of the stack on the SD after 30-days (one day of data files per each day used after 30-days). Although, very little space on the SD is being used. Is this programmable, or, is it a limitation of the ReMed machine? If programmable, how can I fix the problem?
Flow data is, I think, the flow, leak, snore, and pressure rates in addition to AHI breakdown.
Detail data is AHI and pressure data, right? It does not include flow, leak, snore?
And therapy and compliance data would be the AHI and hours used.
The key is, if you are using ResScan, is to select "Discard" when it says it will overwrite existing data. Discard means if the data is already in the record (on your computer), it will not overwrite it. This lets you keep the whole package.
As I said in another post, this is ResMed's biggest mistake. If their goal is to make the best treatment possible, then it fails. After 30 days, your doctor basically knows you used it but knows nothing about flow rate, what pressure it needed, nothing. ResMed instead proves it is all about compliance and little about if it is actually working. And that proves we are not the consumers.
