Got it. Supplier # 1 $19.95.

Thanks. I don't think it comes with the machine as my pusher man had not heard of it.

RE: New ResMed AirSense 10 vs. S9
Is it just me or does the humidifier in the A10 drink more water than the S9? I assume any humidier with the ability to cleanly transition water to vapor has accomplished the task. But, does ther amount of water tell a story here? I know we are suppose to wsh these humidifiers dailly. However, I didn't (and still don't). More importantly when I filled my water reservoir in could last 2-days on 8hrs of sleep (per/night). I avg about 4.5 hrs of sleep per night. I am literally out of water on the reservoir on night two. It just seems to be either losing vapor (and I still have dry-mouth in the morning.

Nup.

It's an illusion that happens with the S9 as well. More water is used when it's cool and less when it's hot/humid. The machine senses the relative humidity and adjusts, even if you havent changed the setting.

There are threads on this very issue.

Oh and I never wash the water chamber. Ever. I used bottled purified water so no sludge builds up.

If using ClimateLine heated hose at same temperature and if humidity is on automatic, the A10 should use at least a little more water than the S9, because the A10 targets 85% Relative Humidity, and the S9 targets 80% RH.

Use airplane mode to turn off the modem.

Use common sense about the filters. The manufacturer recommendation is to check the filter once a month, if dirty toss out...if not continue to use and check.

Why spend $50 for the side cap for the humidifier. Doesn't hurt the machine...just don't put water in the reservoir.

The reason for the side cap is to make the machine a little bit smaller, either for travel or for table space.

The side cap is around $15 at online suppliers.

RE: New ResMed AirSense 10 vs. S9
Just got a "ResMed" "AirSense 10 Audoset" machine set to 10 to 20 cm water.

To learn more about it, I read all 14 pages of this thread.

1. I noticed a few posts about the big-brother aspect of the CDMA modem, but, only one post mentioned that if you turn it off (by going into Airplane Mode), it constantly nags you for the rest of your life.

What "I" would like to do is turn off that constant nag:
- Airplane Mode is currently On, do you wish to turn it Off?

Does anyone know if that repetitive nag is something we have to live with forever, just to prevent big brother from snooping?

2. Is there any way to know if Kaiser is actually snooping on my data via that CDMA modem when it is on?

3. The loaner was a Philips Respironics which worked with both Sleepyhead and Encore Basic. Nobody mentioned here that Encore Basic doesn't seem to work, but people did mention that there is Resmed software, but where do you get that?

5. Like people said, you have to google for the "side cover". I called up the ResMed customer support who said there is no part number (which is odd) for that side cover (which shortens the length by a lot!).

6. Does it bother anyone else that the 24VDC power supply negates the simple use of a car battery when camping?

PS: Nobody seems to have noted in this thread that you can enter into the setup mode by simultaneously pressing the round power button and the rectangular home button for about 3 or 4 seconds.

They call it the "Clinical Menu", where you can set your pressures.

Note that I am new to CPAP so I apologize if these are dumb questions (link=www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-CPAP-Where-do-I-start-my-first-night-on-cpap-sleepyhead).

1- As far as I know, turn off flight mode is the only way
2- I don't think they've much interest in your data, other than hours using the machine and meeting insurance requirement
3- ResScan and SleepyHead download links http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Forum-Private-Files-and-Links
5- Side cover (charcoal) part number, not sure is same for US http://www.resmed.com/au/en/commercial-p...rcoal.html
6- No

They are both top of the line machines. If you are used to using the ResMed brand, you may want to stick with that.

I would strongly urge you to get a fully data capable auto Cpap. You can then set the machine to auto mode or Cpap mode.

I have attached a link to help you in choosing and what machines to avoid.
