What is remote monitoring?
Technology has come so far, especially in the CPAP world. Remote monitoring is a revolutionary feature that allows us to monitor your equipment remotely (and also change settings remotely in ResMed AirSense 10 devices). The data is sent through using a Sim Card which is within the device. The data is sent through daily if you are within Australia.
Should you go overseas, the data will be stored on your machine and then fed through once back in Australian phone coverage.
What do we use the data for?
The data we can access is strictly used to ensure you’re receiving effective and reliable CPAP therapy. If you own a ResMed AirSense 10 device which has remote monitoring, we will be able to change your settings remotely.
What devices enable remote monitoring?
The ResMed AirSense 10 and the ResMed AirMini devices can be remotely monitored by us using a program called ‘AirView.’ Setting can be changed remotely on the ResMed AirSense 10 device, but not on the ResMed AirMini.
Should you want to have your data sent to your own computer, there is a program for patient’s called MyAir. You can sign up to ResMed MyAir here.
How does remote monitoring benefit you?
Remote monitoring is beneficial in a number of ways. It gives us day to day data from your machine. This means if there is something that doesn’t feel quite right, you can call us and have your data looked at instantly.
This is also useful if you have an upcoming Doctor’s appointment. Your Doctor will generally like to be kept up to date with how your CPAP therapy is going as it can have an impact on other health conditions and your general wellbeing.
