It can detect the onset of snoring and automatically increase the pressure until the airway is fully open, even when lying on your back.

The "advanced sensor" would likely be a simple microphone at the machine end of the tube. That would be ample to hear a snore, though it might be a bit tricky to determine exactly what sound is or is not an actual snore and not, say, clearing the throat. But that's a computing problem, not a sensor problem.

RE: Preferred Level for SNI
This wiki article might help clear it up:
Quote:How does a PAP machine detect snoring?

PAP machines do not have microphones attached to them. So your PAP is not listening to the sound of your snoring. So how does it actually detect snoring? It analyzes the Flow Rate data.

هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه
Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: Preferred Level for SNI
The bottom line on this machine is that it does not record any SNI data even though the manual implies otherwise. The copy of a BMC Report from the manual does not match what is actually reported on the real patient available, Reader's Digest version (in Zonk's earlier post), or the complete report that is available to the doctor (or to a patient that knows the secret way in). Last night, I only had access to my detailed report that a doctor sees, this morning I am able to see my real patient report that Zonk showed a copy of from the manual. The SNI line is blank on all of my reports.

The software on this plain CPAP machine does NOT record the SNI data and my guess is that it is incapable of gathering this information. Remember that this a cheap, very cheap, CPAP that I can buy from a brick and mortar store that is about 40 miles from my house for $185. (Too bad I did not know that before I got screwed out of $675 from another local DME that told me that I was getting a deal because my insurance would not pay anything for my machine, that they would give me a special deal and only charge 1/2 of what they bill the insurance companies. I no longer do any business with them.)
