No. I think the ResMed S8 smart card uses a non-standard, proprietary format. Everything I've heard has said we need the proprietary S8 card reader, and we would need to select and install its proprietary USB driver when installing ResScan.
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. 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.
Thanks Sleepless65. My machine uses the rescan card not an sd card unfortunately.
Thanks Vsheline, Looks like I will have to buy the smart card reader.
The S8 is a pretty old line of machines. Especially now that the S10 are out, you can find a lot of good deals on used S9's.

By "upgrading one level," I meant, for example, from straight CPAP to a Bi-level, or from bi-level to an auto. In other words, a "new prescription" from your medical team.
The reason I said this is my belief that such would be required for you to get insurance to pay for it--it is a "different" machine than you currently have.
I was not meaning from S8 to S9 (which now has been supplanted by S10).
If having to pay directly, that's a whole different ball game.
