New Unit Purchase
#1
I just purchased the S10 'for her' model because it has the added functionality in the algorithm

The on line place where I purchased was amazing. I do not think I am allowed to mention the company or agent but if I can, please let me know. She spent almost 30 minutes on the phone with me discussing a lot if information. A lot more than I got from the local DME.

While I do have the Clinician manual and the ResMed software, I am going to take her up on her offer to monitor things from this 'cloud based' data. Essentially, the machine uploads the data and she can log in, look at it and make changes remotely. If it does not work out, I can always take over myself. She is a licensed resp therapist so I am assuming for starters, she knows more than me.

She is starting the unit wide open, 4 to 21 and then when she sees what pressure I appear to be using, will tighten it up.

Any of you have any feelings about taking this route?

BTW - if it was not for the support I got here, I would not be going back to trying the CPAP - I scrapped the S9 a year ago after failing to be able to use it because the local DME was an idiot and not knowing about this forum.

SleepyCoder, if they are in our Supplier List top of screen, you can refer to them by supplier number Smile It's a wide range but will work, over time you want to narrow it

Very good Sleepy! Congrats on your new machine and the promising relationship with your provider. We have a listing on on-line providers here on the site. So instead of referring to anyone by name, we say cleverly cryptic things like "Supplier number 1.." That sort of stuff. If your provider is in the list let us know.. ..and if they aren't on the list pm and let Supersleeper know that as well.

Check the list here: http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...d=31#pid31

You can mention the name of the company, e.g: cloud nine cpap, but not dot com after the name or url web address.

What mode are using: Autoset 4Her or AutoSet?

Do you have copies of the sleep study or/and recommended titrated pressure?

Personally, I would not take this route, someone fiddling with my machine remotely and would not be comfortable or getting any decent therapy with pressure starting at 4
If were me, I set the machine in a narrower range which going gives me a better idea and easier to adjust the range if needed

Only limited data transmitted remotely, detailed data only available on the SD card
Download ResScan so you can have access to much more information than she is going to get from "cloud"

Welcome to the forum, sleepyCoder!

You have a right to all your past sleep reports, both diagnostic (without PAP treatment) reports and titration (trying out different PAP treatment pressures) reports, including full plots of the data. And a copy of your previous prescription.

If you have used PAP treatment you may find a Min Pressure of 4 too low, uncomfortable.

I would suggest increasing the Min Pressure setting right away if 4 is so low that it feels like you are having to work too hard when inhaling.

I would be interested to learn how secure is the cloud. Can any therapist see someone's data just by typing in a serial number? I suppose you must sign some authorization form for ResMed to grant her access to your machine?

Take care,
--- Vaughn

The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
