My final pressure? How do I find my AHI?

Weird Tolkienish Figure
Go to top of this page, click on CPAP setup manuals, and request the clinicians manual for your machine. This will show your how to access the menus on the DreamStation, and make changes if needed.

In the meantime, I believe there is a "My Info Screen" that should give your your AHI number. If you can't find this on the display, then your provider did not enable it.

That is why you should order the Clinicians Manual by email.

Weird Tolkienish Figure,
A five year warranty is great! Not heard that before.

Curious.....is 16.5 your pressure reading or your AHI????

I have an "auto" unit, I think it's my final pressure. I cannot find the AHI recording in "my info", just the 90% info. I will have to look into it.

From the manual:

Quote:AHI AHI This screen displays the nightly Apnea/Hypopnea indices (AHI) value for the most
recent 1 day time frame. It also displays the average of these individual nightly
AHI values over a 7 day and a 30 day time frame. This screen only displays if your
home care provider has enabled it. Only available on CPAP Pro and Auto CPAP
devices.

I have the Auto CPAP model, confirmed in the software itself.

You'll need to enable "Show AHI/Fit/PB" from the clinical menu

The pr system one 560 auto has opti start, auto trial, cpap ck, auto on , auto off, aflex, cflex, and cflex plus.
Doesnt have blutooth though which i think Dream Station does.
Not sure what one would do with blue tooth in a pap machine.

My DreamStation manual states a manufacturers 2 year warranty??? How did you get a 5 year warranty? I know that Respironics was offering a extended 5 warranty but was about $149 for that extra 3 years.

The Bluetooth function allows your Dream Station to pair up with your mobile device - phone, tablet, etc., but only one at a time.

ResMed in Australia offer 2 years warranty on machines and additional 1 year if you join their club
You can also purchase additional 2 years warranty, 5 years in total

3rd night, I tolerate the machine better each night.

However, every morning I am finding that I wake up with the thing blowing air into my eyes. Does this mean it's not working? What do I need to do to stop this?
