RE: Semi-permanently disabling modem in ResMed Airsense 10
I am surprised nobody mentions the real issue with automatic reporting of compliance data. Once that data is in the open, it can be used against you by health insurance agencies, government, etc.

I once had my life insurance refused because I casually mentioned to my family doctor that I tend to remove my mask during the night, so I don't use the CPAP regularly. The life insurance company called my doctor and use that information against me. Image how much worse this can be if the doctor has compliance information all the time without asking for your permission.

Also, in some countries certain professions require compliant use of a CPAP if one is diagnosed with apnea (such as professional drivers). If compliance information is sent to the doctor automatically, and you are a professional driver involved in an accident, the government could subpoena ResMed to get your compliance information, and use that against you.

So why go through such legal and insurance risk when the doctor can so easily get your information with your permission via an SD Card? It blows my mind!

My DME doesn't look at my data anymore since I own my machine now. Unless the doctor pays them, they don't care. They'll give me a survey if I try to order anything from them.

Do you still use your CPAP every night
How do you feel using CPAP
etc...

I haven't heard squat from my sleep doctor. I guess she figures I'm doing a better job at monitoring my own therapy than they will put the time in to doing.

Um, the lack of security isn't because they are in a hurry, it's because they want to keep the tech support calls down, since they cost money. Lately, wifi routers are coming with security enabled by default, but for years they were shipped wide open. The biggest problem is that the average user doesn't have the faintest idea how security works, nor why it might be a good idea. And it isn't in the best interest of the government or business to educate them about why it is essential.

We're in for some really epic fails... I hope that those of us who are desperately trying to sit this one out aren't dragged down at the same time.
