You mentioned she has been ill. Currently on any goofy meds? That could create some temporary problems. As far as the machine goes, I don't think anything would have occurred that would account for the increases. I'm not sure about the idea that not using the machine for a couple of days would make it think it had a new prescription though. So something could be amiss. Does she feel the air pressure is as it was previously?

I noticed in Change in Prescription Settings, all the changes I have made in my ResMed.
I am wondering if there is any reason some are in red and some are in green in the following screenshot.
Also, I have a working modem in my machine, can my doctor see my settings and OK them or change them?

Interesting. I don't have any idea about the color codes, but it does look like the colors get greener as the AHI numbers go down, and redder as they go up.
edit: but there is one set where the numbers went 1.08, 1.66, 1.31 and the red didn't appear.
I bet it is illustrating that the AHI number is good or bad - I didn't even notice that!
If it is something else, someone else will chime in I suppose.
AHI=3.39 would not be considered bad. Only the coders can answer the question.
I'm thinking red flags incongruent settings.
Like settings that cannot be achieved by the machine due to some limitation.
AlanE probably knows the answer to this one.

Thank you very much, I'm glad I asked!
