Thanks for your thoughts. I know my wiring is fine my old has has a new main box and new copper 12 gauge wiring, and neither of the clocks on the same line have problems. I put the UPS on it last night and still have the same problem. I am going out of this weekend so I will see how it does in the motel. If it continues to have the problem I will have the DME replace it.

I was told by my DME that if you get water in it from the humidifier it will start spitting out error codes. I have not had any codes show up on mine.

Its pretty darn hard to get water into your Resmeds! The Respironics M Series is notorious for its very poorly designed integrated humidifier but that isn't a problem w/the Resmeds.

Personally, I think your DME supplier is handing you a pile of horsepuckies. Talk to Resmed directly yourself.

AHI Information from VPAP Adapt SV

Postby forneyfrau » Fri Apr 25, 2008 7:25 pm

Does anyone know how I would determine how many apnea events I am having each night from the info stored on this VPaP? I am able to read average pressure (9.6), respiratory rate (13-20), Tidal Volume (234-820), leak rate (13 L), and MV (?) 4-11.

I don't know how to intepret this to see if I'm doing better or worse on this VPAP.

Anyone with any ideas?

Some weird stuff here?

Guy says he had 602! central apnaeas in his test, and the doctor still refused to even consider the possibility that there was a problem. Is thinking about poss. of getting another doctor.

Another guy says he used the VPAP machine and wonders if it is responsible for giving him numb arms, fingers and toes.

Another guy says he had a problem with the machine (doesn't say what it was) and so he then "went out to dinner," and when he came back from dinner the problem was ok. Hmm...got to think about that series of events.

Guest-

It was not a guy who went out to dinner, it was a lady. Thanks very much! And yes, it's true, you never heard of a computer being able to reset? You've never had problems with a computer and had to shut down. Now that's weird stuff. If I wanted to post lies, there are plenty of other places to do that. Frankly, I'm here to get support, not to be insulted. I have a college degree and I know how to read error codes!

I wish I could figure out how to get an AHI out of this machine. I do not understand why ppl come on these forums get to say stuff like that. If he is so knowledgeable why cant he even make a log on name.

JimK-

Thanks for the reply. Guess he's just a skeptic, probably thinks sleep apnea is nonsense. I appreciate people like you who are willing to be supportive and informative. So have you taken your VPAP back to your doc for a read out of the stats? Are they able to see AHI's?

Went to see my doc today and got nothing out of it. She did not seem to know how to read my machine, and was even curious about the small tube on it like she had never seen one. I told her about my arms going numb (twice) and she said nothing. Told me to continue to loose weight and come back in a year for another study becouse of my high apnea.

What a deal, I hope this new Doc is better

Assuming the Adapt follows the usual Resmed protocol, try pressing the Left and Right buttons and holding for 3-4 seconds. Efficacy Data should appear in the LED screen. IF it does, from then on in the button pushes are pretty much self-explanatory: Left button to Enter, Right button to Exit, Up button to return to the previous screen, Down button to proceed to the next screen. On my new VPAP Auto the AHI and HI are the last two screens in the menu.

If the Efficacy Data menu doesn't appear, it may be because access to it has not been turned on in the Clinician's Menu. You can not accidentally nor intentionally interfere w/or change your therapy options in the Efficacy Data menu. You would then have to ask your local DME supplier to enter the Clinician's Menu and turn on the access to the Results (detailed/advanced patient menu). Some DME suppliers will not do this w/o an order from the sleep doctor to do so. Many sleep doctors are not even aware that such access is available much less that access to it must be included in the equipment script.

I have tried everything to include pressing the right and left button(but they are red and green) I have Clinician card and book and it says nothing about showing the AHI. I guess i will go to the DME and talk to them

Evidently then the S7's protocol might be different than the S8s. The VPAP Adapt SV uses the Humidaire 2i integrated humidifier, right? That was the integrated humidifier for the S7s. The S8s use the Humidaire 3i integrated humidifier. I was just taking a guess and hoped it would help. Good luck!

Thanks for the information, but I think as JimK said it is different. The clinician booklet made no mention of AHI, which I am most curious about. JimK- I hope you find out more at your next visit. I know this visit must have been frustrating due to the lack of information.

I'm starting to sleep really well on the Adapt SV. About 3 nights of awesome sleep for me! Hope it continues.
