Ah, it's a kind of clarification of the menu (ans some other things) in Finnish. I wrote it, because to some people the manual was unclear about those things. I tried to translate it with google translate, but the result was just terrible.

I could translate that to (hopefully) understandable English if someone wishes, but I wonder... S8 is a bit old...

Väärää? Mitäs väärää siinä voisi olla?

There's another S8, so I think we'll be OK. I'll yank that one out. Thanks for your help!

is there a virus in these manuals?

Post by cpapnewbie33 » Tue Jul 21, 2015 7:28 am

I downloaded my manual for my machine from the drop box link and my anti virus said it contained a virus nad it put it in quarantine and I can't read it now.

Is there a way to get a manual that do not contain virus?

Howdy Morbius,

I think that in consultation with their physician, people should be able to change the pressures on their machines. It seems pretty important to me to be engaged in your means of breathing. You are telling me diabetics can put needles in their veins to adjust their levels of blood sugar but those with Sleep Apnea and sleep software can't opt in to adjusting their air flow? Really?! One man's opinion...and not one very common in establishment circles.

Question is, given this sorry state of affairs, what to do about it.

If you want to host this stuff on your personal accounts, do what you are gonna do. You are all grown up and I'm not the boss of you.

That said, this is America which means there are copyright laws and take down notices. You've waved a red flag and dragged CPAPtalk into it without our consent. Come on man.

I'm not going to say "please do the morally right thing" because you are morally right and one day our jacked medical system will figure that out. But I will ask that you please do what keeps CPAPtalk out of dutch, keeps me from fielding myriad legal notices today and lets me work to make things better in my way instead.

Thanks,
Johnny

Howdy back!

Certainly not trying to make your life miserable Johnny!

OK gang, need to do a little brainstorming here. This is (or will be) the best resource available. How can it be accomplished legally (or in fact, can it)? Are the clinical manuals really protected anymore?

I think that the main complainer is probably the manufacturer that begins with R and ends with D.
There's another website that I know of where we can get software and the manuals for all the brands except the one that seems to be the main complainer and they used to have the clinical and user manuals for those machines but they quietly disappeared so I assume that someone got their hands slapped.
It's a website like cpap.com where cpap equipment is sold. It's where I send people wanting Encore Pro.
Everything is available except ResMed. I don't know the legalities involved but the manuals are plainly copyrighted and most of the manuals we have are photocopies.

Can't someone just host them privately and then we use the secret handshake to direct those people to it?

Sadly, my only copy of the manual for my current machine is on my iPad.
I need to either make a hard copy or get it onto a USB stick. Stupid Apple product!

First of all CF, get em while you can. It took me about 5 minutes to download the entire library on the first post. This was a predictable outcome.

Morbius, I don't think there is anything we can do on this platform but tell those in need of a manual where it can be obtained. Enough of us can save the links from post #1 to make those available without involving CPAPtalk. Keeping the links published on a sticky or anywhere else on the site will still be a problem for Johnny, even if they are hosted elsewhere. Also, the longer those links remain public, the more likely the take-down request will spread to the DB server hosts. They will immediately disable the downloads since they violate their terms (content you own). So really, the best policy here is to comply on CPAPtalk, and if someone owns a domain and wants to deal with Resmed's threats, put the links / files there. I would say that host could not be in any way connected with DME sales or have a commercial interest in equipment or CPAP treatment.

JMHO, hide the links before this spreads.

I agree. cpap.com needs to be protected as they are not involved.
