Modern CPAP machines do not need to be calibrated.

Party lines aren't a thing anymore, either. :)
Party lines, or Panty lines?? Asking for a friend.

Re: ..now a new problem with my new RESMED model 11 ELITE

Cool-down mode fascinates the cat. First human to channel a cat. How do you like laser pointers? :lol: :lol: Another thing: if you want to carry this all the way, remember cats do not need toilet paper. My cat has NOT THE SLIGHTEST interest in my machine, but he REALLY wants to play with my USB cha...

Normal cool down mode. Resmed machines have all done this for years and years and various models.

THAT makes a lot of sense. My machine appears to turn off OK, but I never actually checked to see if it was still slightly on. Will do that tomorrow.

How often should I change the filter on my Resmed Airsense 10? Every time I check it it looks ok to me.
I was advised to change it monthly, but I found the filters on Amazon for little cost, so now change it weekly, or bi-weekly.

Re: Resmed F20

Was recently switched to an F20 from an older F&P Simplus. I really like the way it fits without a plastic bridge on my forehead However I think it is really noisy in comparison. The noise is all coming form the tube/mask and I have no idea what it is. No leaks just whooshing air noise especially w...

Re: Recommended Pulse Oximeter

What is the current pulse oximeter rated highest by forum members? I have had 2 health watches with P-OX capability, and both showed SAME levels as the medical equipment I've checked them against. The one I use now is a MoreSo, does BP, pulse, Ox, AND even ECG, and cost just under $40 on Amazon.

Re: Have you had a COVID-19 Vaccine or have an appt?

WOW! Had a similar experience here, but it was a hole in the outside wall that the landlord did for a plumbing fix, but never repaired. Once the rats found it, it was party time, and my food and electronics took the brunt of their fun. Traps and poison had little effect, AS did my cat. Ultrasonic d...

Re: How Long Are Mask Cushions Expected To Last?

Mask is a ResMed F30 full face and has been working pretty well but in the past week or so I’ve been suddenly getting spiking AHI numbers, going from 1-3 to above 7 and lots of rainout in the mask. Waking up with it full of condensation and feeling like it’s not working like before. Haven't used an...

For now, maybe try turning on Airplane Mode.
Exactly. If that fixes things, then it's possible someone has hacked that machine (unlikely, BUT possible).

If that DOESN'T fix it, then mental health care seems necessary.

Re: Have you had a COVID-19 Vaccine or have an appt

Even though I felt a little under the weather for a day, I’m so grateful to have been able to get the vaccine. I had what I call 'pre cold' feelings, not sick, but just feeling like my immune system was working overtime, for both doses. Nothing I couldn't easily handle, and it took me over 2 months...

Re: Do I need a new machine?

I have owned my So Clean for many years. In the past when I changed the filter there was a distinct ozone type smell with every use. When it stopped I changed the filter. I no longer get that smell and am wondering if there is something wrong with the machine or did SOCLEAN change the composition a...

Re: Have you had a COVID-19 Vaccine or have an appt?

Kira, your dog will forgive you. They're amazing at that. We all have to make sacrifices for the common good. Even our sweet, innocent furbabies. Harper will forgive me. He already has. During February's cold snap, and continuing with rising water in the Mississippi, we have been invaded by wild ra...

They also have this one https://cpap.com.au/collections/cpap-ma ... 0599347293 which looks like a touchscreen Airsense 10
I LIKE that one! Some nice additions to the Airsense, and clean minimalist look.

Without SmartStart I would have to touch my machine, which I try to avoid at all costs.

Which reminds me, I should check the filter at some point.
How ya gonna check the filter if you won't touch the machine?
THAT sounds like Captain Obvious speaking! :lol:
