"Judith, in a case like this, when you need to assess if it's actually damage or just a re-set you need, I would recommend you make a call to Philips Respironics. Tel 0800 1300 840 which is reception and  then ask to speak to the Technical…"

My APAP machine has been my best friend until two nights ago. It suddenly started to blast me with constant pressure and kept me an hubby awake all night long. I have to add I have a rotten cold and sore throat too.Last night when putting my mask on I noticed the screen showed lots more information than usual. We had a very rough landing and it did bounce as did we all. Then in the airport a member of security knocked hubby over and the machine hit the ground hard.......Then last night I tried…See More

Hi, Judith-Ann, welcome to the forum.  You asked how you could find out about your AHIs. I am not certain as I don't have that machine (mine is one of the S8 series), but I think the S9 Escape machine you are using may only give you the basic hours of use. Often the clinics seem to issue machines which give just this basic information.

Judy Y replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"Thanks for your answer Kath. The app I have is Philips Dreamapper . It tells me minimum/maximam/ 90% pressure, My AHI and mask fit, Hours usage. I cant see anything about obstructive or centrals. Is my app out of date, or my machine?"

Kath Hope replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"I don't think those symptoms are specific to central sleep apnoea.  Your app should tell you if those apnoeas are obstructive or  centrals.  It sometimes says 'CA.'  Sometimes when people first wake it takes a…"

HiI was diagnosed with severe sleep apnoea Jan 2017 after hiring a device from Hope2sleep. Think I had this problem for around 10 years. I eventually got my cpap machine in August 2017. I have had a few ups and downs, and had my machine adjusted a…See More
