After about 6 weeks use by me, and reading somewhere on this forum on how to check for machine/blower hours, I discovered that there were over 600 hours usage in addition to the hours I had on it, so called the DME and informed them of my displeasure with being given a used machine, and was going to report this to my insurance since they were the ones paying the rental. I asked for this machine to be taken back and given a brand new machine. Within 2 weeks, I had a brand new PR560 Auto still in original packaging, and no machine/blower hours on it.

If this is a machine you are going to keep, then you have a right to new, no matter if you or insurance is paying.
Just my 2 cents.

thank, I went in this morning before work and strongly voiced my displeasure. spoke with the owner of the company who brought out a new machine and showed me no hours on blower/therapy/machine.
swapped it out no problem.
Wha I thought was going to be trouble turned out to be easy enough to get a swap. especially after I showed them the printouts from sleepy head with someone elses data from this machine and another machine on it.

Glad it worked out for you. I guess the DME will hope the next person to receive this machine won't know how to access the menus. We are 2-percenter outlaws you know?

Sounds like the DME is practicing this one!

I had 146 count, now less than 1 AHI consistently. Don't let the numbers scare you, be thankful you're on the path toward getting the help you need, sorry to hear about the clap.

Marc, you still need to have a copy of your sleep study records which includes both the raw data and the summary. You've made 4 requests. My suggestion is to call the office again and ask to speak with the person in charge of your medical record. Tell them that you want a copy and you want it within the week as you've made multiple requests. Make sure they understand that you want the entire record. Nobody should have to waste this much time getting their medical record and clearly someone is dropping the ball.
