What's wrong with this picture?
#1
I had an OA event early this morning.

No, that's not the mystery.

The mystery is it looks like my machine ran out of "ink bits" or something before I had the OA, and about an hour before I woke up.

It is not a "Sleepyhead" thing, because "Rescan" shows the same thing.

The puppies could have eaten it, but I got up before they did.

So it's a puzzle.

Quick, check your pulse...you may have passed away at 7:55 am!

On the other hand, you may have what is known as a bug in the computer industry. I use that term to explain what's wrong with somethings when I have no idea what the problem really is. Most people accept that and just shrug it off and it makes me look like I actually know something.

Since it affects both readout softwares, I suspect something is amiss in the firmware of your CPAP box. Check with the manufacturer for any updates available and if no love, unplug it and hold the power switch down for 30 seconds. Sometimes that resets a processor that has wandered off into the sunset and allows it to find home again.


ps..My God man! You're getting waaay too much sleep.

To quote My Cousin Vinny "Looks like the &^%$ thing is BROKEN!"

Time to rotate the puppy 181 degrees and reset the machine.

Oh almost forgot, now you see why bricks rule, and data machines are smelly!

I guess it could be an idiopathic event. That means "bug."

p.s. I actually got up at 8:30. The machine just thought it was 9:00. The puppies didn't get up until 8:40. Nice.

You have 2 different time scales on your charts but they all seem to end at the same time.

Yes. I actually woke up and turned the machine off at 8:30. But the machine thought it was 9:00. But the flow graph, etc, stopped going squiggle squiggle squiggle at around 7:55. But the OA event occurred after everything else went dark. But I don't know what's going on. But I don't really care a whole lot because I'm going to have my supper, play with the puppies, and go to bed. The machine will work just fine....... or not.

There's an awful lot going on with these pups, do we need to call the aspca and have them check up on you and them?? I'm starting to get concerned.

Oh yah and I hope the machine works just fine.

I think maybe it would be more appropriate to call the aspcr_g.

Since you did not have any events all night the machine decided to leave for a break. Then there was some sleep wake junk that looked like an OA. Since the machine was on break anyway it just threw in an OA and didn't bother with the rest.
If you had simply gotten out of bed at 7:55 none of these questions would have come up.
So set your alarm for tomorrow morning t prevent this crap.
