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.  Although, if you have a ResMed Airmini travel CPAP and is not locked by the original supplier, we can help.  Contact us for details if you have one of those units.

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 $50.00 per report (7/01/22) and we will email a credit card payment link once your report is ready. You can normally get your report same business day.  We do offer expedited service as well if you are needing a report within a 1 hour time frame.  Contact us directly for details.

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?
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 6/4/2019 2:41:00 PM
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

Hey I having same issue any luck around this ?
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 6/28/2019
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
Date: 9/11/2019 5:39:00 AM

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
Date: 11/18/2019 10:44:00 AM
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.

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.
Advans CPAP Staff

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

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
Date: 10/1/2020 6:22:27 PM
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?
Advans CPAP Staff

Data collection issues would be best answered by contacting ResMed directly.

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.

Hello, I have a Philips Dreamstation CPAP. I would need to get the 3 most current months of data from my machine for a job. When I pulled out the SD card out, the last file folder was from March 2021. I opened the folder and it showed me data recorded until the beginning of April 2021. I inserted a new SD card into the machine to capture any data, but I didn’t pull it out in fear of wiping out any data that it captured. My question is if I pull the card out, will the machine loose any memory that was transferred to the SD card? How do I save the data stored on the SD card? What will happen if I reinsert the card into the CPAP machine again? Will all the existing data be wiped out too? Unfortunately I just learned recently that I could document my data using the DreamMapper app. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 2/10/2022 4:06:53 PM
All data is stored in the CPAP and normally cannot be lost. It is only overwritten by new data. The card is just used to transfer data onto the computer for generating reports.

I tried using the resmed SM card in the philips respironics machine but don't know if that sufficed in getting the data moved over to the SM Card, Please advise if there is something i can do rather than move machines
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 7/13/2022 4:32:30 PM
We cannot combine data from two machines onto one report. You can advise your doctor you have 2 machines and have them do the calculations to see if you are compliant once we generate two reports.
Randall Myers

I need to show one report to show continuous use for a period of 4 months. Is there a way to do so without moving a machine when i stay at another home?
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 7/13/2022 4:31:19 PM
A report will need to be made for each machine. Combining the data from both machines into one card will not work. The easiest way is to have a card for each machine and then send us the files from each card. All data is stored on the each machine and the card is just a method to pull the data off the device. You can clear off all the old data from the cards and put it back into the machines. It will then download all the stored information again on the card. Do this for each machine and send us the files.

I have a question, but first I will give you my sleep apnea history. Back in 2013 I did a home sleep study which said I have sleep apnea. I got a cpap machine but never could get used to it. This year I decided to get my CDL, the dot examiner said to do another sleep study, I did, and it said I have sleep apnea. I told the dot examiner, and he said that I need a sleep compliance report and to get set up with a sleep specialist. I got set up with a sleep specialist and asked if they could do a sleep compliance report for me and I told them I had done a home sleep study. The specialist said I needed to do one of their overnight sleep studies because the home study is not accurate enough and that the DOT willl not except a home sleep study, so I did their sleep study. I got the sleep study report, and it said i have two reasons I have sleep apnea. One is obstructive sleep and the other is central sleep apnea and I will need to undergo another night of sleep study. I already bought another cpap machine a Resvent Ibreeze 20A. I have been using it for a little over two weeks now. What more can this sleep center I went to do for me other than doing the 30-day compliance report. All I need is the compliance report to get pass my medical exam. Please can you give me an answer I am confused and feel like I am being taken to the cleaners.
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 12/30/2022
Ultimately, ask whoever you purchased the current machine from if they can show you how to pull a compliance report from the device or if they can do it for you since they sold it to you. They should be able to if they are competent with the products they sell. We do not work with that brand unfortunately. Normally with an overnight sleep study, if you show enough apnea events during the first half, they would have you try CPAP on the second half of the night to see how well you do on it. After that, they will prescribe a cpap machine. Since they want to bring you back a second time, the apnea could have showed up later on during the first test, but there was not enough time to have you use the CPAP.
