Is the Minimum Use Threshold on the Intellipap adjustable?
I still am waking up frequently, often having to go to the bathroom, I turn it off while I'm doing this. I also have problems with pinched nerves in my shoulders from the way I sleep so sometimes I have to work them out. so it's off while I do this. It would be nice to turn this setting down to an hour for now and as I sleep longer move it back up to 4 hours. If not is there any harm in just leaving it on?

Yeah, well, you could roll the old odometer back, and maybe sell the car for a little more, but no rolling back the 4hr compliance clock. Can't trick the sd card. If you just let it run, and it is on auto start/stop, it will turn off. If you don't use that feature, it will just come up as LARGE leak, and not be believable after 5-10 minutes. Try wearing it during the day, or early evening while watching TV, reading a book, or go online to Apnea Board to bring time up for the compliancy police. By the way, less trips to the bathroom is a nice benefit of this therapy, from my experience. Keep plugging away....

Thanks for the reply. I misunderstood how it works. I have to use it for more than 4 hours per day. Here's the definition from the help page:

"Minimum Use Threshold: Determines the minimum amount of time that the patient must use the device to be logged as a compliant day. Device settings allow for 4 or 5 hours, with 4 hours being the default setting. This setting can be changed in the device clinical set-up menu. Many insurance carriers, including Medicare, state that they pay for the therapy if the patient is compliant. A compliant patient is considered to be one that uses their CPAP 70% of the days for 4 hours minimum for 30 consecutive days within the first 90 days of therapy. "
