Most machines only keep 365 days of data.

That is what my machine shows, the 365 days. When I put the card in the reader it went back 447 days? Guess I was just curious as why it didn't show the start date but I don't believe it is important, I own it and well past compliance! Thanks

The machine itself is what keeps 365. The card, however, I would assume would keep whatever had been written on it. I wonder if it dumps data from the card after x days?

Several folks here keep a copy of the card data on their computer. That way you never lose anything.

That's a good idea. Does the SleepyHead save it each time or do we have to choose to save it?

you can find the link for the download in "Private Files and Links" forum
also ResScan and SleepyHead threads

Are you aware the S9 Escape only record compliance data (hours used) and nothing else
S9 Autoset and S9 Elite are full data capable mchines

One word: MONEY. We're not all able to buy high end equipment.
And I'm sure that, as with this time, if my Otolaryngologist wants information he'll pick the foolish approach of having me stay overnight at the hospital for a sleep study. Gee, it really might be cheaper for the government to pay for an S9 AutoSet but I don't make the rules. Big Grin

I believe it erases data from the card too. ResMed uses a really boneheaded way to store the data on the SD card and has to erase data because it is limited by the number of files on the card, not the size of the data on the card.
Get the free SleepyHead software here.
Useful links.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

The vast majority of us don't have money. We have insurance. Most insurance companies follow the Medicare rules pay the same price for nearly all CPAPs. This is why DMEs give us the cheaper dumb machines because they make a higher profit.

For those of us without insurance, we use Craigslist or Supplier #2.

If you cannot switch the machine, and if the machine is yours vs being rented, you may want to contact Supplier #2 and ask what the price difference would be if you sold them the body from your Escape (not the humidifier part) and the Elite or Autoset you want to buy. The price difference may be more within your budget.

Just because you have gone this long without a data capable machine, it doesn't mean you should continue to do so. But it is your decision, of course. We will continue to assist you along the way. Our goal here is to education and empower.

I understand you! Sometimes the deductible is so high, gotta wonder why you have insurance!

I am "lucky" to be low income and have Medicaid to cover what Medicare doesn't cover.

We make to much to qualify for help and not enough for some things we need, (or maybe just want)! Somehow the Lord gets us by each month, even with mounting co-pays. We are barely over the limit for medical assistance but it could be much worse!
