ResMed Autosense smart start not working
ResMed Autosense smart start not working
Hello everyone.  

New here.  I completed a one month trial using a machine.  My Sleep Apnea was 10 per hour so considered mild as I was told.
Anyway I am using the DreamWear Nasal CPAP Mask.  I used their ResMed Autosense 10 for one month and used the Smart Start
feature where after you removed the mask it would shut off in a few seconds.  Nice feature.  So I go ahead and purchase my own machine
and had everything set up like the other one I did my trial with.  The first morning when I removed my mask, the unit didn't shut off.  I thought it was just a fluke.
It did the same thing the other 3 or 4 days.  Unit would not shut off and just kept blowing out a strong air flow.  The respiratory person I told this asked their
ResMed rep and the answer they gave her was the mask I am using has a too low of air flow and the machine doesn't sense it when I remove it.
But it worked flawlessly with the other same exact machine for a month.  So I am asking anyone here if there is any truth to their answer or do I have a defective machine that would either need a reset, or an update or is it defective???  Thank you for your thoughts and suggestions in advance.

Yes, make sure the smart start feature is turned on. 

I wasn't happy about how long it took for the air to stop once I uncoupled my mask from the air hose. So.....when I need to visit the restroom at night (which can be numerous times), I just reach over and turn the machine off. The air flow stops immediately. 

Once back in bed, I reattach the hose to my mask, take a breath, and I'm back in business.

I use my machine in the same way as I have a nasal mask, it’s documented in the manual that with a nasal mask smart start won’t work.

I use the off button to turn off the machine and smart start to start it

smartstart works fine to start the machine with nasal pillows. I always stop therapy with the button so don't know if the stop function works consistently with pillows. it did the few times I tried it. however, as I recall the manual indicates a pressure under which it won't work, 7cmw maybe?
