Yeah, I was told that the reason they did that was because with the software, you can get into the clinical settings and change your pressures.............well, I already know how to get into my clinical menu without the software, so if I were going to change my pressure settings, I could have done it a long time ago!
Anyway.... they told the DME that I could call my doctor, and if my doctor said it was okay for me to have it, he can call the DME or the local ResMed rep, and ResMed will give it to the doctor, and the doctor can give it to me. Good grief, people! Its a reporting device! Its not national security!
Either way, its kind of a moot point anyway, because the Adapt SV does not record AHI data at this time. All I would be able to see is compliance data, and that kinda sucks. I emailed ResMed, and they said that the Adapt over in Europe already has these advanced data capabilities, and that it should be in the new Adapts here in the states within the next 2-4 months. She was unsure of whether this would require purchase of a new machine or not though.... she said its possible I could be able to just upgrade the software on the current Adapt (I hope!).
So..... by that time, I have another appointment with my sleep doctor in November, and it might be available by then. If so, yeah, I'll definitely make sure he gets me the software! I may even be able to get a new machine by then, because from what I understand, the new Adapts will actually show you the AHI data on the information screen....that'd be nice!
