I've received a number of requests for some type of Excel spreadsheet for manually recording and displaying CPAP data. In other words, where a patient can manually enter nightly CPAP data (such as AHI, perhaps other data also), and the spreadsheet automatically calculates your weekly, monthly & overall averages and also graphs this on a chart (Bar graph options and/or line graphs, etc), so that patient can spot changes and trends in their therapy results.
The request seems to come from folks who don't like to use a complicated software package like ResScan or SleepyHead.
In light of Apnea Board's collaborative and helpful community spirit, I'm asking those of you with a little Excel spreadsheet knowledge to help out if you can. I'm hoping that we can come up with a finalized spreadsheet, and then upload the final version to the Apnea Board website for people to freely use as they see fit.
If you can help, or have any thoughts or ideas on this, please reply to this post and use the attachment feature (at the bottom, when you reply) to attach any spreadsheet file that you've done or you've found elsewhere.
Then, others can build upon what you've done, and we all can make improvements to it as time goes on.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
