im cash strapped and placed in LOA at work due to Severe OSA.

<Moderator Edit: Poster has an old RemStar and needs to show compliance data to doctor>.

i can show to my doctor in order for me to be released from not fit to work. Sorry if the post is out of topic but need help coming from a desperate person who is no longer earning an income due to this illness.

Being in the Philippines takes away a lot of the low-cost options of being in the U.S. You're basically looking to buy a replacement machine. I have no idea what is available in your location, but can suggest that Supplier #2 on our supplier list does ship internationally, and can provide new or used equipment. You will pay a shipping premium, but they are currently offering a S9 Autoset for $399 USD that meets your needs, a Dreamstation Auto (new) for $569, and a Respironics System One 60 Series Auto (used) for $349 USD. These are all very good modern auto CPAP machines that use SD cards to record full efficacy data. Figure on adding about $100 for international shipping.

Don't those old RemStar machines record compliance data. Seems you should be able to take the machine in to your doctor if there's no SD card. Can anyone verify this?

Most of them produce a code on the display that can be interpreted by any DME.

Compliance VIC (Visual Inspection Check) - This screen displays the start day and the total number of days used when the sessions were greater than 4 hours. This screen also displays a check code number you can use to validate that the data provided to you is the data taken from this screen.
