I've been using a Resmed AirCurve 10 for several months now with no problems but last night something odd happened. I used it as usual and slept well for approximately 8 hours but the sleep report showed only 25 minutes. What's even more odd is that my event count has regularly been in the low single digits and the count for last night shot up to 31.2. I didn't feel any different than usual upon waking and the unit appeared to be operating normally until I stopped it.

This may just be an isolated glitch or it may be an indication that the control board is failing. I'll have to see if something similar happens tonight.

Has anyone else who is using an AirCurve 10 experienced this or similar glitches?

All answers will be appreciated. Thanks.

I use an Aircurve 10 for a couple years now and never had that happen. If the issue persists, chat with your DME as the unit may need repairing. If you have had it for only a couple months, they usually are given as a 13 month lease and after 13 months become the property of the patient so get it fixed (or replaced) prior to the end of the lease period if this situation applies.

I'm going to see how it behaves tonight. If something similar occurs I will call my supplier tomorrow and tell them. More than likely they will replace it with a new unit quickly. Being I use it every night I don't want to be without it for long. I've already had one stroke. I don't want to be risking another.

Thanks for the reply.

It was working okay for a while but then it happened again this morning. I have to wait for the machine to upload the stats to myAir to see if they agree with what my machine is telling me.

Is there a way to pull all the data from the SD Card and save it on a computer? The myAir stats go back only two weeks and I'd like to keep a personal record going back to when I first started therapy.

Okay. I figured it out. There's nothing wrong with the machine.

Apparently the system software is set up to start a day at 12:00PM so if you go to bed at 05:00AM and sleep until 01:00PM the system will start a new day and show you stats for a sleep duration of 1 hour.

Also, it does not adjust for Daylight Savings Time, which I can accept because DST is ridiculous and should be eliminated.

Problem solved. :-)
