RE: Resmed S9 setting problem
Maybe it would help if you posted a picture of this data instead of typing this out. We have the same ResMed S9 Elite and only four numbers are reported for the pressure, Min, Med, 95% and Max. You are showing a 7 for those four (which makes sense to me) and then a fifth number (the -1000000000.00) which does not even appear when I view the same information on sleepyhead for the same machine. Same with the EPAP numbers - we only have four, where you apparently see five.

If they did switch machines on you, then you need to get your more expensive machine back!

Notice the new max -1000000000.00 .....?
Notice EPAP pressure 4.00 previous 4.00 - 7.00

Could someone please explain the difference in settings, how can I adjust to the previous settings.

The short answer is to post it somewhere on the web, then insert the link in your post.

I went to photobucket.com, created an account, then uploaded my pictures to my photobucket account.

Hi SilverSleeper,

If you can reduce your image file to 200 kb or lower, you can upload it to your post as an attachment now. Once you get past 8 posts and a few days of membership, that file size limit will be raised to 512 kb. Or if you choose, once you reach that point, you can link to an outside file.

It's a spam-prevention feature of the software.

See here on how to do attachments:

RE: Resmed S9 setting problem
Silversleeper, something is strange about the settings on your machine. The summary page (the one without graphs) says that your machine settings were changed on March 6th so that there is NO pressure and NO pressure relief. And it also says this machine has always been on straight CPAP, and all but one of the prior three time periods reported had any settings other than zero. Looks like they not only switched machines but forgot to give the new machine any pressure settings at all. If so, no wonder that your numbers have shot up. I would try to call them, day or night, to get this fixed right away. Some might suggest that you change your settings yourself but I think it would be best to leave them exactly as they are so that your doctor or DME can see what they have done. This needs to be fixed right away.

I'm sure the Docs will like to see this. I wonder if you'd sleep better with an Autoset though?
