• Phone-in - This screen displays the total therapy hours for the device, the total blower hours, and the total
number of days used when the sessions were greater than 4 hours since the device was last reset by the home care
provider. This screen also displays a compliance check number used by your home care provider to validate that
the data provided by you is the data taken from this screen. This setting only appears if your provider has enabled
this feature.
• Compliance VIC (Visual Inspection Check) - This screen displays the start day and the total number of days
used when the sessions were greater than 4 hours. This screen also displays a check code number used by your
home care provider to validate that the data provided by you is the data taken from this screen. This setting only
appears if your provider has enabled this feature.
• Therapy hours - The device is capable of recognizing the difference between the time the patient is actually
receiving therapy and the time when the blower is simply running. This screen displays the average amount of time
the patient is actually receiving therapy on the device over a 7 day and 30 day time frame (provided the device has
at least 7 or 30 days of data respectively). If the device has only 5 days of data to use for the calculation, the 5 day
average value will be seen under the 7 day display.
• Days > 4 - This screen displays the cumulative number of device therapy sessions that exceeded 4 hours over a 7
day and 30 day time frame.
• Large leak - During any given night, the device recognizes the percentage of time the patient was experiencing
what it deemed to be a large leak. Large leak is defined as the level of leak that is so large, it is no longer possible
to determine respiratory events with statistical accuracy. This screen displays the average of these individual nightly
values of percentage of time in large leak over a 7 day and 30 day time frame (provided the device has at least 7 or 30
days of data respectively). If the device has only 5 days of data to use for the calculation, the 5 day average value will
be seen under the 7 day display. If you see a large increase in the percent of time in large leak indicated here, contact
your home care provider for assistance. This screen only displays if your home care provider has enabled it.
• AHI - The device accumulates individual Apnea/Hypopnea indices (AHI) for each session the patient used the
device. This screen displays the average of these individual nightly AHI values over a 7 day and 30 day time frame
(provided the device has at least 7 or 30 days of data respectively). If the device has only 5 days of data to use for
the calculation, the 5 day average value will be seen under the 7 day display. This screen only displays if your home
care provider has enabled it.
• Periodic Breathing - During any given night, the device recognizes the percentage of time the patient was
experiencing period breathing. This screen displays the average of these individual nightly values of periodic
breathing over a 7 day and 30 day time frame (provided the device has at least 7 or 30 days of data respectively). If
the device has only 5 days of data to use for the calculation, the 5 day average value will be seen under the 7 day
display. If you see a large increase in the percent of time in periodic breathing indicated here, contact your home
care provider for assistance. This screen only displays if your home care provider has enabled it.
• 90% Pressure - During any given night, the device recognizes the 90% Pressure achieved by the Auto Algorithm. 90%
Pressure is defined as the pressure at which the device spent 90% of the session time at or below. For example, if the
device recognized airflow for 10 hours, and 9 hours were spent at or below 11 cm H
11 cm H
O, then the 90% Pressure would be 11 cm H
2
values of 90% Pressure over a 7 day and 30 day time frame (provided the device has at least 7 or 30 days of data
respectively). If the device has only 5 days of data to use for the calculation, the 5 day average value will be seen under
the 7 day display. Each average will display 2 numbers. The first number shown is the IPAP average, while the second
number shown is the EPAP average. This screen only displays if you are in Auto Bi-level therapy.
