I'm new here (first time posting) and have a question regarding the sleep report on my ResMed Airsense 10.
I have been wearing it now for 2 days. I work nights so I sleep during the day. The first day I wore it for approximately seven hours but the sleep report said three hours. Today I wore it for about 6 and I got credit for 2 hours. Does anyone know why this is? The mask fit showed green on my machine so I have to assume it was working properly.
I did read somewhere that the clock changes automatically at noon, so if this is the case I would need to change the internal time.
Any suggestions? I need it to be accurate because my provider is able to check online and I have to ensure for insurance purposes that I am covered.
New CPAP day starts when the machine clock hits noon. Typically the machine is set to local time.
Even thought the session is split across two cpap days, you should get credit for the time.
i.e. -- the after noon time should get added to the next day's before noon time.
10 series machines have a cellular modem that reports compliance. I would think they'd be calling you if you were not getting credit for the full "cpap day."

Thanks. I guess I'll wait and see if I get that phone call. I was afraid my machine wasn't working or I was doing something wrong.
