ResMed Airsense 10 changes?

ResMed Airsense 10 changes?
I started using an AS10 about 2 years ago and it really helped a lot!  Increased energy, less naps, better mood, etc.  

I have noticed that in the last 6-10 months, though, that these benefits have decreased and that the machine seems to be working differently. I wanted to see if anyone else was noticing changes with the behavior of their machine.  

-settings - autoset from 8-20

- when I first got the machine, it was much more responsive when I took off the mask and when I would hold my breath, simulating an event where my breathing stopped in the night.  It would ramp up significantly with multiple “whooshes”.  

- now my machine does not do this.  It simply keeps going at its set pressure and eventually will turn off after about 5 seconds if the mask is taken off.

This lack of auto response seems to have coincided with a decrease in effectiveness.  I wanted to see if anyone else had experienced the same thing and if anyone knows if ResMed changes their software at some point.

Good morning and thank you!

I just checked and it is enabled.

RE: ResMed Airsense 10 changes?
The behaviour you described sounds like smart stop is doing what it's meant to - ie shut down the machine when you take the mask off. Try turning it off and see if that makes any difference. If not, we can look in some more detail at what's going on. If you download and install OSCAR then post a daily page we can look in more detail for you.

As to an overall lessening in benefit, it's possible that the machine is is malfunctioning but generally any failure is pretty obvious. Have there been any changes in your health / lifestyle?
