A. The SD cards we recommend are those supplied by ResMed with the S9 therapy device, or available as an accessory.
A. ResMed-supplied SD cards should be used in order to meet safety standards (e.g. IEC 60601-1). The electrical safety test authority has determined that S9 therapy devices that use SD cards need to have appropriate clearance from the accessible part of the card to the electronic parts inside the card. ResMed has selected several SD cards that meet the necessary safety requirement and supplies these with the therapy device or as accessories. Not all SD cards on the market meet the clearance requirement or have been tested and validated to work with S9 devices.
A. A 1GB SD card easily stores 365 days of usage data, 30 days of detailed data, and seven days of high-resolution data.
A. No. While these SD cards, used with an adapter, would work with an S9, they have not been shown to meet the IEC 60601-1 medical electrical equipment safety requirements for this therapy device. As a result, ResMed recommends that they shouldn't be used.
A. No. SDHC cards, as well as mini and micro SDHC cards, and SDXC cards, do not work with S9 therapy devices.
A. The SD Speed Class is marked on most SD cards. Class 2 has a guaranteed transfer speed of 2MB per second; Class 4 achieves 4MB; and Class 6 provides 6MB. Note that only ResMed-supplied SD cards should be used.
