Why Sleep Apnea Patients Rely on a CPAP Machine Hacker


I want to try. My cpap (apap) machine is a phillips dreamstation. It comes with a smartphone app that is kinda dumb and only shows you a little bit of information, I know it has a cellular modem that dials home every 24 hours to report to the insurance companies on my compliance, so they can stop paying for the machine (until it was paid off, which took like a year), and now if I’m noncompliant they’ll stop paying for new filters. And they have never covered all of the expenses anyway.

I also have a lot of problems with compliance. I am a lot grumpier on days I didn’t use it, and yet I still don’t use it, I think because I have given up on everything and don’t do things to keep myself alive.
