Your machine "REMstar Pro C-Flex+ Auto IQ", its the feature of the Auto IQ
From Supplier #1 http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-CPAP-Supplier-List

Smart Technology Modes
The smart technology of Auto-Trial Mode and CPAP-Check Mode offer up to 30 nights of auto adjusting capability. During that period of use the system functions as an Auto CPAP delivering an adaptive pressure on a breath by breath basis. Following the set time of the Auto-Trial mode, the machine functions as a CPAP delivering the pressure that the patient was at or below 90% of the time. The CPAP-Check mode continuously verifies pressure requirements and makes adjustments after every 30 hours of use providing the user with more effective pressure levels over time. An Auto-Trial mode must be a minimum of 3 nights in length and the entire available 30 nights of Auto-Trial do not need to be used continuously. Visit the "Important Tips" tab of this product page to read an example of the Auto-Trial and CPAP-Check modes.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT an Auto CPAP Machine. It functions as an Auto CPAP during Auto-Trial Mode and switches to CPAP mode during CPAP-Check mode.

I wonder if it is possible to engage the auto trial mode more than once. Use it for 30 days then turn it off, then do a "reset" use it for 30 more. Clearly it has the auto algorithm built in, there must be a way to create a do over.

RE: What does this mean?
I find it sad sad that DMEs dump ancient bricks on unsuspecting new CPAP users. I wish the manufacturers would stop making them and all the Medicare based insurance companies and prescribing Doctors would learn to insist on current data capable machines.

Perhaps there should be a license/education requirement to read forums like this prior to ordering a Pap machine so we could all direct our doctor to provide what we should have a right to.

RE: What does this mean?
It seems like I read here on the board that you have to reset "Auto-IQ" after 30 days if you want it to be in auto-pap mode. That would be a pain to have to do that every 30 days.
But, I could be wrong about this, so just hang in there and someone will know the answer.

Looks like a new machine is three years out for me, what I'm finding states upgrade every five years. :-(

If you can afford it, you can also buy one out of pocket. Supplier #2 in our Supplier's List (link at top of every page) has gently used and open box machines at decent prices. It never hurts to have a back up machine.

RE: What does this mean?
My back-up isn't 'gently used' and may be dumb, but when I killed mine by knocking off the table while running it was sure nice to have a basic CPAP at a set pressure. Keep your OLD machines~! You just never know when you might need it.

RE: What does this mean?
me50, I had also read that bp machines for home use usually register higher than actual numbers. I confirmed this when I took mine with me to my PCP's office and we did comparison readings. My home-use electronic bp cuff's numbers were about 10 points or a little more above the non-electronic readings by an experienced nurse in the doc's office.
I didn't know that my PCP's office is always open to having pts. come in to check their own bp machines against their readings. My PCP is a large group of internal med docs and PAs, and no appt. was needed. "Just bring it in anytime," is what I was told; something that other folks might want to request from their PCP.
