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.
