I am afraid no SD slot is where the technology is headed.

Our only salvation will probably be the Sleep Doctors & DMEs who will NOT jump on the bandwagon & do everything through ResMed only.

They are lazy & cheap.
They will NOT relinquish the SD card method.

The DME can also forward the data to the Sleep Dr. It would be nice to be able to access the online data, but it is not quite as detailed as the data from the SD card.


So, when I order my supplies from Lincare, they just assume that I'm being compliant and send the stuff. And my insurance company goes along with it? I'm not complaining. Just surprised. And do I ever have to see the doctor again about it? If I did, what does he do? Just ask me if I'm compliant and write it down on my file? Or will he want my SD card? I can't see that happening.

Insurance company usually just goes along with it because they have no reason to question it.

Do you ever have to see your doctor?? Depends on the insurance and the DME....I haven't seen my sleep doctor in over 8 years.
I still get my supplies but only when I request them....I have Medicare and they don't allow auto shipments.

As to why she wants to use MyAir along with SleepyHead or the data off the machine...does it really matter?

compliance

wants to get credit for using the xpap

Gryphon wrote:I find my self sometimes referencing it simply because it shows me usage hours... I don't sleep with out my PAP ever so it's a good way to track my actual hours of sleep. I still have insomnia like issues were I don't average good numbers. I'm usually only getting about 6 hours of sleep a night sometimes less. And that's averaging in the weekends were I sleep 8 or 10 hours. It's very very hard to sleep during the week when my sleep cycle seams to be permanently set to midnight or later. I did rather well when I spent a month in the UK so go figure.

As far as My Air in general it can be a bit odd sometimes with how it updates. I've found if I sleep past noon that the time after 12 is counted as an instance. So if I go to bed at 6 am Saturday morning and sleep till like 1:30 that my air will say I only slept for 1.5 hours etc... but it will add up the time from Saturday night to the total for Saturday and correct it self. During the week I'm usually laying down around 12:30 or so and having to get up at 6:45am

The one thing that did drive me a little nuts were the emails I used to get from "My Air" I swear they were copied from a Pre-School teacher in reference to a potty training chart, I think they just substituted the potty references and added CPAP. The emails and encouragement sounded so condescending it was actually quite funny at first then it just got sad. I don't think they're meant to sound condescending but I'm just not sure. The target audience I'm assuming is people over 20 years old right?

I did talk with them over email for quite a while and they were quite interested in this site as far as what kind of reception their MY AIR service was getting. I shared that a lot of people found parts of it useful but that there was quite a lot of us who agreed that the email pep talks were quite silly.

Some of the numbers used to work out your "Score" are a bit arbitrary. If you take the mask off long enough that your machine shuts down to scratch an itch on your nose, even if you've only had the mask on for 45 seconds. It counts that as a Mask on Mask off and docs you. You can't put in your own goals to reach.

So I'm not impressed by the industry standard of 4 hours usage. Then again I don't get enough sleep as I should so if they raised the "industry standard" higher before insurance would pay, I probably wouldn't qualify for my machine - not because I don't use the machine enough but because I don't sleep enough. I just wanted to be able to set my own goals for usage hours and I wasn't able to do that. I average very high scores most of the time even when I'm getting so little sleep so it would just have been nice to be able to set a higher goal for my self to achieve instead of getting a shiny gold start for using my machine for 4 hours a night for a month... yada yada yada...

Rest well.Gryphon

============

the emails from my air and AHC (a DME) were counterproductive

you better use that thing 4 hours a night OR ELSE !!

that did no motivate me to do anything but get rid of my air and the DME=AHC

FYI: The newer Resmed AirCurve and AirSense devices no longer have the SD card - only cellular comm capabilities to the Resmed mainframe and your supplier's database. The other alternative is using an oximeter. Wearing another device whilst I sleep is something I don't want to do.

huh ???

i just got one a few months ago and it had an SD card

an oximeter in no way replaces the SD card data
but it is an important adjunct to supplement it
