New Resmed Airsense10 Doesn't Come w/SD Card

New Resmed Airsense10 Doesn't Come w/SD Card
hi everyone.  i'm just wondering if anyone else is have this experience.  i've been using my Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset for about 5 years now and my insurance wants me to get a new one.  i went down to pick it up and it doesn't come with an SD card to record my data.  they're also going to be monitoring me remotely for compliance for 10 months, i guess.  i always assume the worst, that they're trying to take away my ability to monitor myself.  has anyone else had this experience with the SD card?

The lack of an SD card with new machines sounds like it's been happening more often. They probably think giving gifts to non-customers called CPAP patients probably wastes a few corporate cents per machine. And yes we probably don't need to see if therapy is working well or not.

It's more that they believe we don't need to see our own data, nor do they think we would understand what we see. Then we would be more dependent on them.

yes, that's what i think.  it's all about billable hours.  that's the real reason they don't want us messing with our own pressure settings.

You do know you could blow up a lung or your eye or something if you get that pressure set wrong?

OK, but does it have zero run hours?

Run hours are displayed in the Clinician Mode where setup takes place. Press and hold the control knob and home for a few seconds.

FWIW

run hours equals odometer in a car VS user hours that equals trip odometer

yeah, i just got the idea to go and investigate that.  it does say zero hours, but i also notice just above there's a button to erase data.  if you were to erase the data would it go back to zero or would the number of hours used still show up?

The Run hours can't be reset by the patient. With the correct equipment, repair shops, including some DME's I suppose, can reset run hours. A legitimate scenario is if the blower motor is replaced, the run hours could be reset. Non legitimate hours reset wouldn't be extremely surprising at some places.
