How is data stored on Philips Respironics system One CPAP Machine? Please Help
I have sleep apnea and I was recently fired from my job for supposed non-compliance with my CPAP machine. I had been diagnosed with sleep apnea 4 months ago, place on a CPAP machine and was shown to be compliant with treatment with a report generated from data obtained via a wireless modem . The medical equipment company requested the modem back and I thought I was doing fine until I was brought back in front of my boss and told that there were reports I had been observed to fall asleep again in the work place. They placed me on sick leave and made to see the sleep specialist doctor who requested another compliance reportbasic went back and got the wireless modem and it essentially reported that it had no data for the past 2 months. I was fooling around with the settings for the machine and i the only thing I can think of is that I must have reset the machine or the data on the machine accidentally and this may be the reason for the missing data. I have been using the machine thru through that time period and so I took a look at the SD card from my machine and found data for the days of that period. I am afraid that if I take the data card to the same medical equipment company that I got the CPAP machine from they will blank out the data to cover their mistake. My questions are the following:
1. Since Phillips CPAP machines are so commonplace, could I take the care to another medical equipment company and have them generate a compliance report based on the data in the card?
2. Does anyone know whether the Phillips Respironics CPAP machines have their own internal memory separate from the SD card(Just wondering if the card was out, would data be stored on internal memory and put onto the SD card later if the card was put back in)
Any info you could give me on this matter would be greatly appreciated....
