Since you're so early in the treatment and it's on a rental program, you may be able to get it swapped for either a DS460TS or a DS560TS. The TS is the heated humidification with heated hose. Both of those are full efficacy data machines. I would try hard to get the DS560TS if at all possible.
The reasons you want a fully data capable machine is no one cares as much as you do about your health and well being.
Most doctors, DMEs and RRTs do not lok past complience data. no one bothers to check your success or failure using the CPAP machine.
When you learn to look at your data with the help of the folks here you will come to understand what it says and what it means.
As you monitor your results, you will learn to make adjustments to your machine to dial in your therapy for best results. If you are old enough to remember the fine tuning nob on your TV channel selector or tunining the knob on your radio, you will understand the process.
I agree you want a Phillips Resperonics System one DS560TS.
You may need to stand up and fight for it, but a year or 2 from now you will be glad you did.

Just thought I would let you know that "punched 'n rolled" has been previously called the "Elbow Alarm" on this forum just in case you want a cross reference!
