How important is it to have the latest firmware version?

SS believe me growing up with the last name RITCH is was often changed to a "B" (I dont't believe that was Jumpstarts intention). You get used to it and since it is not spelled RICH like most people exptect I will tell people it is spelled like the "B" word with an R Dielaughing

Well, my vision doesn't always work well up close, and it LOOKED like Britch to me! Sorry for the error, Rritch. And no, it wasn't deliberate. I don't do subtle very well. My approach is what is called - at least when phrased politely - direct. People seldom have a problem knowing when I am taking issue with anything or anyone. :grin:

Jumpstart not a problem at all. And for the record I have been told that I am about a subtle as a sledgehammer. I may not always be the most politically correct but at least people know where I stand on things.

Another thought, Rritch, both for you and others concerned about a possible delay in getting treatment: Based on the sometimes considerable time which frequently elapses between when a doctor gets the PSG report, and then meets with the patient to order a machine, as reported on this forum and others, it appears that many MDs are also not very worried about a short time delay in beginning treatment. And, like you, I am noting this simply to provide further fodder for those who perhaps are wondering if waiting (should it actually come to that) for the latest firmware would be reasonable.

And now I will sign off and go out to dinner with friends who want to buy me a steak!!!! Ahhh, sometimes life is great.

Zonk, are you a full-fledged member of the Aussie Chamber of Commerce, or simply a hard-working volunteer? Anyway - the wine was Californian, and we loved every drop. And thanks for the well wishes - my wife and I had a great meal as well as evening.

Well, I finally got my ResMed S9 Autoset with version 905 firmware on it yesterday. It was quite the wait. That is the good news. Sadly I have not yet received any additional information on what changes there are in 905 versus 903 or 4. I have asked my DME to continue asking for clarification, and I'll pass along anything that I learn.

On a happy note I used the S9 last night and I am really impressed with it's performance. My AHI was reduced to .4 from a 3.5 the night before with my old RemStar Auto. It was really quiet and easy to breathe with. I also changed my mask to the ResMed Swift FX which I really love. It took 30 seconds to adjust the first time, and didn't move the whole night. It's very light and comfortable. I also used the climate-line tubing with the temperature set to 80, and even with the window open during a cold night, I am happy to report that there was absolutely no rain-out. Excellent!

Thanks to all on the forum for providing me with all of the data necessary to make this excellent choice.

EyesWideOpen,

Glad to hear you got what you're after and I hope the low AHI continues for you. My AHI the past two nights were the opposite - 0.35 to 3.2... Hmm... You didn't somehow figure out how to steal my swap our AHI's did you?

I don't know whether or no the drop in AHI was all in my mind or what, but I'm happy with the results!

You just drank too much last night, and maybe I didn't drink enough!

EWO, glad you got the 905. I don't know, but doubt, if you will ever get a response from you DME. I have submitted the following request 3 separate times so far, with changes in the text only for the number of times I previously asked, to ResMed via their website, and after 11 days, still do not have the courtesy of any reply:

"I do not currently have the most recent firmware on my S9 Autoset machine. Is it possible to update the firmware, and if so, how do I do it? Also, are there release notes somewhere, so I can determine whether or not an update would be useful to me? Thanks."

Frankly, I don't now expect any reply, but I will continue to send every 3-4 days. Their response to my submission has always been the automated "we or one of our representatives will contact you in 1-2 business days".

I may contact the ResMed Rep in this area myself if I haven't heard anything back from the DME by the end of next week. I'll keep you posted.
