3 months in.... still so much to learn
Yeah, I meant the daily events chart for previous days since I had already imported that day's data before making the settings adjustments to see the user flags. The next day it just worked (even for previous days' daily events), and I've been seeing the UF events ever since. Maybe I just needed to restart my computer... apparently restarting the app wasn't enough to trigger it.

Welcome Shawn42.

SleepyHead doesn't show Flow Limitation data for me either. I have it turned on in the preferences but it doesn't show up in the daily sidebar, the Event Flags chart and there is no Flow Limitation chart. I don't think our machines provide that data.

I just found the screenshot you posted, so I guess yours does provide that data. I have never had it displayed. Maybe I need to check my machine to see if there is something there.

I use FlashPAP to load data from a FlashAir III wifi sd card in my machine to my computer and display it with SleepyHead .

Thanks =) I eventually found a reference here that states:

Quote:NOTE about Flow Limitation data: The Philips Respironics machines score FL in a very different way than the ResMeds do, and this means there is no FL graph for a Philips Respironics machine.

which explains why we don't see a graph. And:

Quote:2) The Flow Limitation data is recorded on a Philips Respironics machine only if the machine is running in Auto mode. If you are using a Philips Respironics machine in fixed pressure mode, the Flow Limitation index will be 0.0; but you can't assume that means you are not having any flow limitations.

which explains why we can still see a Flow Limitation value in the details on the left (or at least I do, since I'm in auto mode).
