There is a 20 minute cool down cycle after you stop therapy (if press power button briefly and don't hold down power button for 3 or 4 seconds to Power Off the machine).
With the S9 AutoSet, I think, if before you start therapy you hold down the round dial for 3 seconds it will start the pre-heat cycle. If you start the pre-heat cycle and don't start therapy within 20 minutes, a 20 minute cool-down cycle will follow. I suppose the A10 AutoSet would be similar. All these extra minutes would be included in total run time.
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
On the S9:
"Used hours" goes to zero if you use the "erase data" function.
"Run hours" accumulates from when the machine was built and can't be reset.
Run hours is the one you want to look at to see if it's a used machine.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
Pretty much got the controls and menu down now, but the verdicts still out as to sleep results... Third night was a little rough with an over pressure event which woke me up. I was on my left side, and the pressure was probably maxed out at 20 by the feel of it? I may switch it back to the CPAP mode if that continues...
