CPAP Compliance Report for Commercial Drivers

CPAP Compliance Report for Commercial Drivers - What we can do for you 

 Any professional or commercial driver who is using CPAP is required by the DOT (department of transportation) to provide a compliance report of usage.  Drivers have mentioned DOT is needing compliance of using the device for at least 4 hours a night @ 70-75% of the time in order to be passed. 

We can generate a DOT compliance report for you by downloading the data off your CPAP machine via the sd memory card/chip located inside the unit if it has one.  After downloading the data, we generate a report for you which can then be submitted on your part to your employer.  We provide this CPAP compliance report for all drivers who require it to pass their DOT physical.  This service is available in our office location Garden Grove, CA.  If you are not local, you have the option of emailing us the data off your SD memory card by following the instructions in the video listed below.  

We do not have the ability to remote directly into your CPAP machine via WiFi.

There are three methods of how you can provide us your CPAP compliance data.

Bring in your machine to our office here in Garden Grove, CA if you are local.  

If you are not local, you can simply send us the SD memory card located either on the back or side of your machine to us.  If there is no card in the slot, you would need to need to insert any known working SD memory card (4 Gig minimum capacity) into the machine in order for the data to be transferred over to the card.  To make sure the files have transferred over, Philips Respironics machines data will show "P-Series" file folder (pictured below) on the card.  ResMed cpap machine data files are listed in the video below.  Our shipping address is here. Include a copy of your ID and note how many months of data is needed on the report.  We will contact your for payment once ready.  

Below are instructions on the third way you can send us your ResMed CPAP compliance data to us via email.  Keep in mind,  a PC computer (not Apple) is required for this method and works for only if you have a ResMed, Philips or Respirinics device with a SD memory card.  For those who have a Philips Respironics machine, your files displayed on the memory card will be appear different than the ones shown in the video below.  Please see the image under the video.  The emailing process is no different compared to ResMed cards.  

Please watch the complete step-by-step video below on how to send us your data (applies to ResMed, Philips or Respirinics device only).

The fee is $25.00 per report and we will email a credit card payment link once your report is ready. You can normally get your report same business day. 

How to send your ResMed CPAP Compliance Data

IMPORTANT: Below is the P-series file we need for Philips Respironics machines only.  
Do not open the file.  Simply right click on the file just like how the above video shows doing with the ResMed files.

I am a commercial truck driver located in Southern California. Every year my company requires me to get a CPAP compliance report downloaded and printed out for my DOT physical exam. I used to go to a place nearby where I live, but they no longer offer the service. How do I go about in having you do t for me? Thank you.

I have an older model ResMed S9 CPAP machine and need my sim card read for DOT compliance... Do you read those cards?

Hello, Please give us a call at 714-897-2727 during normal business hours so a time can be set up for you to come by. It would be best for you to bring in your machine just in case the memory card / chip in it is bad. We will then download and generate a compliance report for your DOT physical. The process takes about 15 minutes for a nominal fee.

I lost the memory card on my machine. Was there a way you can access the data for a compliance report without it? Or can I just purchase any standard SD card from the electronics store?

Some of the newer CPAP machines do not need a memory card to retrieve data as they can transmit information remotely via wifi. All of them will usually have some type of SD card or chip that will store compliance data. Any SD card should work. We typically recommend getting one with about 15 GIG storage.

Is there a way to make a fake compliance report ? Cus had a CPAP but didn’t use it like was suppose to and I’ve went and did a physical but it’s being held till I get a report stating that I had used to for the amount of time and percentage

We do not advise on or provide false documentation. It is always in your best interest to use CPAP even if it was temporarily for a week straight in order to properly document usage to pass the DOT physical. They can give you an extension for a few weeks so you can use the CPAP. We may be able to print out a report for you.

I came in your office the other day and had you download and printout a cpap compliance report for my DOT physical on Dreamstation CPAP machine. I requested the report be for 30 days worth of data. My doctor now says they like to get 1 years worth compliance. Can you do that for me?

Advans CPAP Staff

What machine did you have? You want to try a new SD card as your old one may be corrupt. We can get the data then.

I can get my print out down the road. What I need help with is that I use my cpap every day and was at 88% compliance and suddenly it has dropped to 63%. I didn't use it for 2 days because I was moving but the report shows I missed 9 days. How did that happen. I've now been using my machine every night like I am supposed to but the compliance percentage is still at 63%. My medical card now runs out in 2 days and the stupid machine is gonna cause me to lose my job. I've contacted the manufacturer and the company it was purchased from and they couldn't tell me crap....HELP PLEASE!!!
Advans CPAP Staff

There is no reason for the numbers to drop that low for only two days of not using the machine. It is possible, the recent report has a much less time frame than compared to the time frame of the report that resulted in 88% numbers. For example, the lower number report could be for only 2 weeks of use, vs a report that is 6 months of usages. If that was the case, the number will be very off.

You can either mails us the memory card located on the side of your CPAP with a copy of your ID and we can generate a report for you. You can also view the entire video above and do it electronically.

I have an older model CPAP machine but need a report for my Texas CDL DOT medical card. The model I have is REMstar Plus ( REMPlus w/C-Flex core pkg). Model# 1009871 . How do I locate the memory card from this device?
Date: 10/19/2020 6:27:55 PM
Did you ever get your download? I’m located in Tulsa Ok and I still have the connections and software to do these. It seems respironics makes machines to take a licking and keep on ticking. I have a handful of patients that still use it. Until I’ve supplied all of them with new machines, I will keep the ability to download as an option.

Your model is a unit we do can no longer produce reports for due to the age unfortunately.

I was not able to use my machine for a few days cause of a open nerve in my mouth and my 3 month read out is 65.6 is 2 weeks enough to get it back over 70%
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 7/16/2020 2:53:19 PM
Until you are able to close your mouth or use a full face mask, the data will not be correct from air leaks.

I’m wondering... I got a new job and they do not monitor my cpap machine .. so the only one asking for reports is the dot dr. When I get my physical and he only asked for the last 3 months. So I only have to wear it the last 3 months of the year to get my med card ?????
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 7/20/2020 6:13:36 PM
Correct. Ideally, you should be wearing your CPAP every night so you do not fall asleep at the wheel.

Advans CPAP Staff

You can provide the Dr the serial number from your new machine and see if he can generate a report for you. If not, we may be able to help.

I have an air sense 10. I work night shift so I come home and sleep around 7 am. I would until noon and the machine says I have slept 5 hrs, meeting the required minimum 4 hrs. If I sleep past 12, let’s say until 1 pm, the time shows that I only slept for one hour thus looking like I I had only used my clap for an hour and 5 or 6. Why is that?

I provided a compliance report and passed my dot physical. Now my employer wants a copy of my compliance report. Can they legally ask for this?
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 5/19/2021 5:42:10 PM
We do not provide legal advice. With that noted, we don't see why they would need a copy since you did pass your DOT Physical. If it is their policy, you do not have much choice unless you are willing to seek legal council to dispute it.
