I'm a loaner..

I saw a reply from Zonk indicating that your machine is not data-capable, nor is it an Auto type. This has you at a serious disadvantage in correcting your issues, or even identifying what they are. The usual term for machines of the type you have is a "brick": tells you nothing about what is going on during your sleep, and has no auto function to adjust to changing conditions.

Isn't it interesting that the sleep clinic gave you a loaner data-capable auto-type machine, to get some data so they can better address your issues. In my mind, it would obviously be better if you had a machine by your bedside every night that would do the same.

I will definitely bring this up when I go back on June 3rd! However, I saw some paper work while I was there the other day that said if my insurance company has paid for a CPAP within the last 3 years when I may be required to pay the full costs for a new one. So, if I can only get a new one every 3 years, I have a whole 2 years to go.
