How to Reset a ResMed CPAP

ResMed's sleep therapy systems are built for ease of use in order to encourage patient compliance. Data cards with two-way information download and patient monitoring enable easy transfer of information from patient to clinician. If an error message appears on the LCD screen, resetting the machine will return the machine to the default settings. You can use two methods to reset the machine, both of which are quick and easy to perform.
