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.

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.
