Every time I log on my appreciation for this forum ratchets up another notch. I've been posting about Resmart machine and it dawned on me today that it was my dissatisfaction with the machine and mask dealt me from a new supplier that sent me to the internet and resulting with my finding The Apnea Board. Thanks Resmart!
Now, after learning what information is accessible from my machine via icodeconnect and comparing that to information posted by users of other machines it is obvious that what's available to me is considerably less helpful. However, it is more helpful than what I had before. Before joining the forum I didn't have a clue.
For now I plan to continue with this current machine. My AHI numbers are high but when I increased pressure from 9 to 10 I saw improvement and today I bumped it to 10.5. My insurance is made available by my former employer to retirees as a group and we enjoy the benefit of being in a large group. Practically all of us are over 65 and on Medicare and my policy is a Medicare replacement. From year to year it is reviewed by the former employer and at times the DME suppliers change. By November or December we will know of any changes in suppliers and by then I should know a lot more about my results with Resmart. By then I can decide if I need to request a new in-clinic evaluation that may open the door for a new improved machine. I realize this post is a little wordy, thanks for wading through it. I hope it is helpful to someone and also, I will appreciate input, comments and suggestions.
