You can also lok at the waveform and see how long the apneas last. The longer they last the lower the O2 level and the greater the chance of arousal.

I don't know. Maybe check with your DME?

RE: Forgot password. Really hard to get back in
That's a good suggestion to look at the waveform and I'll try that but I'm not sure how to get that out of the software? Any tips

Also I bought a non recording oxygen meter that I thought I would keep beside the bed and when I wake take a reading.

If I'm running a deficit at night after I'm awake for a few minutes until I can get the reading I would think the deficit old remain, or would it go back to normal as soon as I was awake?

Anybody know?

I'm not familiar with the Rescan software. SleepyHead is free, will work with your machine, and will also incorporate oximeter data. In SleepyHead I just left-click on the waveform to zoom in. Or use the up arrow.

Yes, it would return to normal as soon as the apnea event ends and you breathe again.

Yes, it's really hard to get on with your username and password. I wasn't on for several months because it wouldn't except me. Finally I had to register under Facebook. I think if you're not on for awhile, you stop being remembered.

The older machine I have has been on the road with me for almost two years. Broken down and traveled with about 40 times.

I wonder if the wear and tear could have caused some malfunction. What's the best place to get a machine checked out and serviced or refurbished. Can they go back to resmed?
Does anybody know
Thanks

Hi Harry,

If the older machine was an S9 Elite and your new machine is an S9 Autoset, then perhaps the self-adjusting capability is helping.

If the older machine was an S8 model or an S9 Escape Auto model and your new machine is an S9 AutoSet then that may explain it. The S8 AutoSet and the S9 Escape Auto do not have the "Enhanced" AutoSet algorithm used in the S9 AutoSet and S9 VPAP Auto.

If both the older and newer machine have the exact same model name, then I am surprised the new one works better (if using same pressure or pressure range).

I think most firmware changes are only to adapt to newer/cheaper components, not to change the treatment algorithms, and I think there usually is no benefit to upgrading to a newer firmware version, if available.

You can call ResMed customer service and give them the serial numbers of your machines and they should be able to help you understand your options.

If you wanted your old machine checked out by resMed it would need to be sent to ResMed by a Durable Medical Equipment (DME) provider. ResMed does not accept machines for repair directly from end customers, only from DMEs. Can be any DME; does not need to be the original selling DME. But before you consider doing that, investigate prices for used equipment available online at places like Supplier #2. A used machine in good condition may be a better deal than paying for a check-up or repair.

(A link to our Supplier List is at top of every forum page. Apnea Board does not receive any financial benefit when members use suppliers on the supplier list. It is simply offered as a resource for finding suppliers which, as far as we know, are reliable.)

Take care,
--- Vaughn

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.
