Two weeks ago her new Dr sent her for a sleep study. The results of that confirmed moderate OSA with an AHI of 22. This past weekend she went back for her Titration. The result of this was a pressure of 9 (Keiser had her at 18) which makes more sense for moderate OSA. They also sent her home with a new CPAP as well. Previously she has been using a Resmed S9 Elite with humidifier which she still has and has been using up to today. The machine that they gave her is a Respironics REMstar System One 150. From what I can tell this is a very basic unit that does not have any data logging nor does it have exhale relief functions.
Obviously her original machine has far more capabilities than the new one. My inclination is to just reset her old machine to the new pressure and continue using it for daily use and just use the other for naps on the couch and travel. My concern is that she has to send in the card from the new one every 3 months which I suspect is for compliance for insurance. I am afraid that if she continues using the S9 that her insurance will make an issue about the other machine.
My thought is to try to get her another machine with the data and exhale capabilities from her Dr. I do have Rescan and occasionally look at the data from that, but I am more concerned that we won't even be able to get the AHI from the new machine. Without that we will have no idea if the treatment at the new pressure is effective or not.
