I have to say that the pic of my cpap was'nt the right one and neither was the humidifier. I have since corrected it. I also learn thet on my cpap machine has the option for "mask alert" and "auto shut off" so explains the beeping and the nachine being off when I wake. And as far as my lower back, I think it may be from tosssing and turning with the issues I am having. Well I shut off the "mask alert" and "auto shut off" so I will see what happens tonight. Wish me luck! And I thank all of you guys for your imput. And Wulfman. is it true that my machine wont be able to be read by a card reader?
I saw on cpap.com that it has one? Maybe I am looking at the wrong machine but the one I am looking at looks just like mine. On the machine itself it say "remstar plus m series" I hope it can cause I have no sleep doctor and I use Apria and they are just as bad as Aj Care. I would love to take control of my therapy cause I know there aint no doctors here in NY that will give you the time a day, even when you have an appt. I have been on cpap since 2002 and I am on my second machine. I would like to know if I am getting my apnias under control.
Right now I am going on how I feel and why I am being woken up. Well let's see how things go.
Pugsy answered those questions.
The data on the card can be downloaded, but all that's going to be on there is the hours used.
Doesn't hurt to have a backup machine. I'd suggest getting an M Series Pro for your main machine and keep the Plus for a backup or travel machine.
