Now I am on Dreamstation, I got into Clinical Menu and set the Automatic On - set to ON , and Automatic Off - set to ON.
But it does not work. What am I doing wrong? How to crrect it.
The Dreamstations is set to Auto set and Flex.
Should I be sorry I did not get ResMed 10?
I don't have a DreamStation, but I do have a PRS1 model. Auto off takes a lot longer than the S9 models, 30 seconds or so. Auto on does work pretty quickly and pretty well.
What is your pressure when you take the mask off? Sometimes, auto off doesn't work on low pressures with some masks.
Take your hand and cover the exhaust port on the mask and take a few deep breaths to see if that makes it start.
Your profile shows a nasal mask. Is that what you're using? Sometimes auto-on doesn't work with a full face mask.
On early S9 machines, you couldn't do auto on if you set the machine to full face mask mode, but I think the DreamStation doesn't have a FFM mask setting. Maybe there's some other setting that interacts with on/off.
Be sure you are actually set into auto on/off mode. Sometimes, you'll think you're changing the setting, but it doesn't actually "take" when you exit the provider menu. After it fails to work, go back into the menu and see if the setting is changed.
Also, try it with the SD card removed. There may be a way for a DME to lock down the settings to prevent the user from changing them. If you have the wireless modem, put the machine into airplane mode to be sure the modem isn't changing the setting back on you.
