ResMed S9 Question
I have an S8 and S9 which I rotate using a few times a year, (just to make sure the older S8 still works). When I rotated back to my S9 a few days back, I've noticed that it restarts a few times a night... Is that normal?

In other words, my S9 at times just shuts off, (causing me to awaken because of the mask momentarily sucking). I know it did that a few times to me in the Spring also, but I can't remember if I ever asked why it did this???

RE: ResMed S9 Question
Do you have SleepyHead or other software? If so, check the data for leaks.

Do you have autostart turned on? That may shut your machine off if you have a large leak. I turned autostart off on mine for this reason.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.
Useful links.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Yes I have the ResScan software, but I don't check it until it's time for a doctors visit.Oh-jeez I think you are right about the auto start function being the reason... Also I started using a fresh mask this time, (so it may leak more until it gets seated in better?) Thanks

RE: ResMed S9 Question
You can check the data any time you want. The doctor won't know and won't care. Because of the way the ResMed machines keep data, you lose most of it after 7 days anyway. You will see some of the basics (but no graphs) in ResScan after that but I think for only 30 days. After that, you only have compliance date, even with ResScan.

RE: ResMed S9 Question
I see you had a better night with your mask tighter. The S9 might be more sensitive to leaks in your mask. If your mask does not fit properly, then it will sense that it's leaking. If it leaks long enough, it will automatically shut off. I suggest checking the fit when you wake up when the machine shuts off (I know, hard to remember to do when you are sleepy). I hope your success continues.

I knew I had a pretty good leak night before last, using a brand new mask for the first time... I just didn't remember that the autostart feature detected leaks and turned of the S9. I did check the mask fit indicator and noticed the red face lol.... Last night was much better after I tightened things up more! Another thing I've noticed using the autoset is that once it detects an apnea it goes to a almost wide open setting, then stays on that setting a long time? I have mine set from 12 to 20, and my normal CPAP setting has been around 16 for the past five years. Thinking-about

RE: ResMed S9 Question
Another feature of ResScan is you can save your reports. By doing so, it doesn't matter how many days the machine saves your data - it will always be available in your saved reports. Just go to the Reports tab in ResScan, choose your report options, pick the report day you want, after the report loads hit Save As.
