What exactly is happening here?
These therapy stoppages, is this the result of the Auto Off function malfunctioning? The waveform just stops seemingly in a normal breath, with no SWJ preceding the shutoff.

RE: What exactly is happening here?
Three things come to mind:
  • Data corruption/import problem
  • Power loss
  • SmartStart (Stop)
Some Suggestions:
  • Turn off the SmartStart - AutoStop feature, but leave on the SmartStart - AutoStart. But I don't think this is the cause because AutoStop is usually preceded by high leak
  • Turn off machine for a few minutes to reset it
  • Check to make sure all electrical chords are in tight and secure. Plug to outlet, cord to power brick, cord to device.
  • Turn on Ramp, either (AutoRamp or minimum 5 minutes at 0.2 less than your normal minimum pressure). This way, should you see a break in therapy, if the  pressure is less than start you know the device restarted. If not, it is a break in data recording. And no, AutoRamp or even a minimal 5 minute Ramp doesn't create the devastating loss of therapy some would have you believe.
