RE: Machine hours
it would be interesting to see how many members used hours vs. run hours are the same.

Just to be clear for those reading, the ResMed machines do blow for a humidifier cool down period. PRS1 machines don't.

Thanks Archangle. I didn't know. Would it record enough hours to account for the difference cited by the O.P.?

RE: Machine hours
Hi,

My blower and machine hours are both at 4086.7. I checked blower hours through the patient menu after I took the machine home. It was at or near 0. The numbers also agree with my using the machine for16+ months at about 8.5 hours per night.

I forget how long it blows, maybe an hour after you turn it off. I don't see the numbers you're talking about. Figure it adds an hour or two per day, so about 10% more hours, 20% is you take a nap most days.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
