WTH? Last night something happened that caused my machine to shut itself off?

Maybe my AutoSet dust collector is special. Or maybe my simulated power outage wasn't long enough. About 30 seconds "off".

I tried power outage with mine. It doesn't matter if smartstart is on or off, the machine powers back on and starts a new session at min pressure (I faked a couple apnea first to raise pressure before testing).

Well seems that answers the question - yes, the machine powers back up but no, it doesn't continue at the previous pressure. Honestly, that's super reassuring, especially considering I've started taping my mouth to use pillows for a while until my sore nose heals.


See my comparison of Viatom/Wellue and CMS50F oximeters here.

Yikes -- then I guess my May 23rd 3:01:36 - 3:03:53 drop out

is still at freaky weird?

Just eyeballing that picture, it looks to me like I was having basically a many-minutes-long hypopnea that completely overwhelmed the machine's detection ability -- does that look like what others are seeing?

I definitely had leaks, but the machine was scoring the leaks at approx 8-12, and the algorithm is supposed to be able to still function at lower levels of leak.

There is SOMETHING about the machine's algorithm that made it come back online after the gap with the pressure still pegged at 15 rather than going back to the minimum of 7 -- yet it didn't score this as any sort of anything?

It could be as simple as a write error to SD card.

As mentioned I would turn off smartstart to remove one of the variables, it won't be near as hard to convert to pressing the button as you think.

I'll add that at least just try without smart start for a few days or so. If it did this glitch without that on, as Geer1 says, a variable is removed.

SD Cards are cheap. Copy your card’s data onto a new card and use the new card for a while. See if the gremlins come back or stay away.

I only saw the gremlin that one time... Without a way to reproduce it, tinkering with settings tells us nothing.

(Back when I noticed the single case of positional apnea in 3 weeks of data, before I understood it as positional apnea I simply assumed it was something wrong with the settings but didn't know what. It was another 4 months before I understood what it was and that it had nothing to do with settings at all.)

I wasn't aware that it was shutting off during my sleep session. It was only after I had loaded the data into OSCAR did I see the intermittent reporting. After turning off the Smart-Start feature, I've never experienced the phenomenon again.

Case solved!

Leave smartstart on if you want to you have only been interrupted by this once so far so seems to be infrequent. If your machine keeps turning off then you can try turning smartstart off to confirm if it is the issue. 

If not the issue then probably power (either house or power supply) or machine but those are less likely.
