Score one for the puppy~!
Meanwhile, I saw my Sleep Doc for the first time since '06 (when I last saw him - really bad on dates) and he told me I got my first machine in 1999, and got my current machine (2nd one) in 2006, so yes, I am due for a new one. No, I do not need a new study as I am an "old Pro" at this - his words <gulp>.
I asked him for his comments/thoughts on using an 'autoset' vs fixed settings? He said that except for two critical points, he likes them.
1) a newbie needs a full study with video - so any other possible issues can be ruled out or dealt with...
2)a number of folks on/using an autoset forget to at least check in or see him, so he doesn't know what they are doing, and may drift or have new issues and assume they are part of the old issue and not check in with him. He has no problem with his patients making settings changes at all, but wants to be kept in the loop in case anything raises a flag to him.
Makes sense to me.
Now waiting on the paper-shuffling...
