Looks like Amazon is squeezing us into using Chinese equivalents.
The consumer is demanding it.

What could be the cause of this? What can he do to prevent this?
I don't know what caused it. Maybe others have some ideas.

It's only five minutes. When something like this happens, I just assume it's a one-off. If it happens more times, some serious investigation would be needed.

Re: Can someone advise on these results? It was posted on my chart but dr isn’t available for another week.

Start thinking about which model ...

A lot of people, including myself take their mask off in their sleep and then suffer many apeas without knowing it. Why someone would not want to be alerted to that is beyond me.
What is your experience in using the alert?

I have 1700 hours on my CPAP machine which is about 6 months old. I believe it had hours on it when it was first given to me by my DME provider. Is that a lot of hours for 6 months of use?
1700/180=9.4 hours per day

Re: Very O.T, but... the sun

Funny, the map shows no cicada orgy in Nebraska; but for years, our hot summers have the interminable screeching from the treetops. WTF are those ugly creatures anyway? Are they tourists? Lost? Or hitchhikers from hell? The map only shows Brood XII and Brood XIX. There are 13 other broods. Every em...
