System One Bipap

Postby wacyone on Tue Nov 14, 2017 5:33 am

I need help. We moved over the summer and my machine has worked just fine up to the last 10 days. Overnight the alarm goes crazy. I have replaced the filter,got a new chin strap and checked everything I know to check. Can anyone give a possible solution on this? I know my DME will not know what is going on. Does anyone think it may need to be sent in for repairs?

Thank You
Wes

Which alarm is going crazy? Are you talking about the leak alarm?
Is it still blowing air?

If you are talking about the leak alarm...first verify using the software that the leaks aren't really a problem.
If they aren't a problem per the software then you can turn the leak alert alarm off.
Maybe try a new hose...maybe there is a hole in the hose.

If it's not the leak alert alarm....are you getting any messages on the screen when the alarm is going off?

Thanks for the response Pugsy. I think it may be the leak alarm but I looked in the set up and I don;t find a setting for leak. Could it be worded different like I found AHI alarm. Any help would be appreciated.

Is your BiPap the 950 or 960 model which is the ASV model?
Those machines have a lot more alarms than the regular bipaps.
And I don't think they have a leak alarm if my memory serves me correctly.

If you do have the ASV model (either 950 or 960) that opens up a whole new set of potential sensor issues and I would think it best to be evaluated by someone who knows these machines.

Acbio.com....give them a call. I used them with my 960 model when it was doing weird things during the night that couldn't be explained.
http://acbio.com/

And/or contact whomever you got the machine from and see what they want to do. It's not normal for sure. They might have a loaner available while your machine goes to the cpap repair hospital.

Average Leak Rate 3.21
90% Leak Rate 10.00
% of time above Leak Rate threshold 3.55% This is what Sleepy Head shows for last night.
Looking at the info window on the machine it shows 1 day 0%,7 days 20% and 30 days 14%

It is a model 50

Is it the 950 model?

When the alarm is sounding do you see any message on the screen?

Is it going off all the time or just intermittently?

If it is the 950 model...it's old and could be ailing and probably needs replacing.

Your leaks aren't excessive at all. Sounds more like a failing sensor of some sort to me.

I made a mistake. It is the 960 BiPAP AutoSV 60 series with heated hose. Sorry for the mistake. I have had it about 2 years so it is not that old.

Where did you get it from?

It's still a fancy machine with more sensors than the regular bipaps and thus more chances for failure.

Any messages showing up on the LCD screen when the alarm goes off and again....is the alarm intermittent or continuous.

It needs to be checked out by professionals. I don't think there is anything you can do on your end.

The alarms went off again last night but before I turned the machine off I turned on the lights and in the window it said"low pressure".So I have a loaner and mine is going to see the BiPAP doctor.

The low pressure alarm. I saw that on my 960 in the middle of the night too and it is why it went to acbio.com to get checked out. We never could find out what was causing it and there's nothing in the literature about it. Ended up changing out the PC board (or something like that) and it never happened again.
Might have been a loose something or other too.

My machine was relatively new when it happened...like maybe 200 hours or so.

My DME has me using DreamStation BiPAP AutoSV with Humidifier by Philips Respironics right now. Last night was a good sleeping night.

You have a Happy Thanksgiving.
