I am having my machine pressure tested tomorrow for the first time after using it for about 5 years. No one ever told me about having this done! For the last week or so I have been having problems wth it blowing my mouth open and waking up (several rimes a night) with a very dry mouth! I've had sinus pain and even air blown into my stomach. I've had other consequences of cpap usage which I won't go into tonight.

Bonnie, definitely keep us in the loop about what they say tomorrow. The problem could be with the pressure or the mask. Do you have a data-capable machine?
Please let us know the outcome.

If you have the classic tank style Pro machine it does not capture and details except compliance. If you have the classic tank style PRO 2 it does capture data. If your machine is the M series Pro it captures data as well.

If you have had your machine for 5 years have you thought about upgrading and keeping this machine for a backup. Many new features have been added to the machines making therapy more comfortable. Insurance and Medicare will usually allow a new machine after 5 years.

The support technician just left. My machine pressure showed almost 19 and it was supposed to be 11. He adjusted the setting to acheive the correct pressure for now and will return in a few days with a loaner and take mine in to be either repaired or replaced. I'm not sure what you mean by data-capable but if you mean does it have a card, yes it does. This has never been read either, if collecting data is its purpose. Who's supposed to do this? Looks like I fell through some loops! My husband said maybe I won't be blowing him out of the bed any more! It's nice to have someone to communicate with about this kind of thing.

Just because a machine has a card doesn't mean it captures any useful data other than how many hours you are using your machine.

Other machines will capture data that includes any events that may be happening at night such apneas, snores, AHI, etc.
OK, so how do I know what I've got and what to do with it?
Look at the top of your machine and write down the complete name of your machine. Post it here and I should be able to tell you if it is capable of providing detailed data.
