RE: I got an S9 Escape
HI SleepDream,

Re: me50's question about "for her" capabilities... We have both models at our house... the "for her" has the same capabilities plus the addition of "for her" mode. Pressure ranges and data collected are the same. Algorithm that decides how to adjust pressure is different in "for her" mode, but the "for her" machine is switchable between "for her" mode and regular mode.

There has been a fair amount of discussion on the forum about "for her" capabilities. If you want to check it out use the following google search link (the forum search rejects the search request due to keywords being too short)...
http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aapneaboard.com+%2Bfor+%2Bher

If the sleep clinic has convenient hours and location for you to drop by in person, that might be helpful. Show up while the doc is in the office even though you won't expect to see him in person. This way you are sure to walk away with the proper prescription in your hands versus potentially receiving a screwed-up script that can't be fixed until the doctor comes back in the office next Wednesday.

good luck and be persistent,

Saldus Miegas

RE: I got an S9 Escape
Update: Talked to the doctor and he wrote everything as I put it (well as you guys put it). Dispense as written is something I had no idea about, this has been pretty informative and helpful. They'll fax the prescription in right now, so I should hear back from the DME tomorrow or I might just call. Everything seems good thus far, I'm hoping there are no problems.

Again thank you and once I get the machine I will let you guys know.

You are entitled to a copy of that prescription. I carry mine with me.

Call your insurance company and tell them what's going on. Call a different DME and have them quote you a price for the machine prescribed by the doctor. Finally, return the brick and tell that DME that if they don't fill the doctor's prescription you have a DME who will.

Most people are unaware that they can shop around for machines. Your DME is betting that you are one of those people, and as soon as you prove them wrong they'll back down and give you what you want. Meanwhile, find a used machine on craigslist. You have to check the listings every day, be patient, and have cash on hand. When you see a good deal you have to be ready to grab it because they go fast. This strategy will work for you because, like me, you are located in a area of high population density.

In essence I would like some insight and if there are certain keywords that would trigger a more desirable outcome or compliance from them. Also what are some excuses that they (Ultra Medical) might give that I should be aware of? I got it on Saturday and was not aware of how the data collection or lack thereof worked.

Thanks in advance and any advice is appreciated.

I was first issued an ResMed Elite I think it was. After using it for three weeks, I took it back and said either get me an Autoset of give me my money back. I insisted those were the choice: pay me back or get me what I want. Period. They argued for 10 minutes and I wouldn't budge. Finally, " Ok, we don't want to force you to use something you don't want. We'll try to get you the Autoset." They gave me the Autoset before I went out the door. Insist. If you have to, leave it there and go. My DME worked in the same office with my sleep doc. Best, --Papit

SleepDream,

Congratulations!

With a little sound advice and encouragement from the forum members, You took on the DME and made this happen for yourself.

It will make a big difference in your therapy to have the data capable machine.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night
