I just started cpap a couple days ago and I have the air sense 10. Its black and has the button on top that has the power symbol and stat and stop on either side of the same button. My question is what do I do if I get up to do something and then come back to bed? Do I take the mask off and let the air keep on blowing until I get back into bed or am I suppose to press stop and then start again? I ask because it says stop. It doesnt say pause. I know the thing records how many times you take the mask off in the night, so am I suppose to be stopping the machine or just letting it keep running until I get back from the restroom?

Hi Aimeetx. The machine is able to sense whether you are wearing the mask properly because it senses your breathing. You can do either if you take the mask off during the night. I tend to leave my machine on and just put the mask back on and go back to sleep. If you stop the machine for a few minutes and then restart it, the software will still record your use correctly. Some people turn the machine off and then restart it because, if the machine is set to ramp from a lower pressure, they find it more comfortable to start from that lower pressure. Bottom line is that you can do whatever is most comfortable for you! Hope this helps!
