Apnea Board News - 2016
We recently sent out our yearly newsletter to all registered members. But for those who haven't yet registered, I'll re-post it here for reference:

APNEA BOARD NEWS - 2016


Hello!

On behalf of the entire Apnea Board staff, greetings!

We're proud that as of this past spring, we have been online and serving Sleep Apnea patients for over 12 years!

Apnea Board is the world's most helpful and friendly CPAP and Sleep Apnea forum. We support the "patient-empowerment movement" (the belief that you are best served when you take an active role in your own CPAP therapy).

Just a few items of interest:

OUR MEMBERSHIP RANKS CONTINUE TO GROW: Apnea Board currently has close to 50,000 registered members who have made over 170,000 posts on our forums. Last month, we had visitors from 149 countries. The majority of visitors come from the U.S., Germany, Canada, Australia, China, Great Britain and France.

SEVERAL ADDITIONS TO OUR CLINICIAN'S SETUP MANUAL LIST: We've added a lot more CPAP Clinician Setup Manuals to our web site to help you control advanced settings on your CPAP machine. We currently offer setup manuals for 162 common machines, plus directions on how to enter the setup menu and change CPAP pressure settings for several others. Some manuals are available for direct download; others available through email. During the past 12 months, we've distributed a total of 49,421 manuals.

We also have Clinician Setup Manuals for the popular ResMed AirSense 10, AirCurve 10 machines and the Philips-Respironics DreamStation models. There are two setup instruction pages for these machines as well:

SLEEPYHEAD CPAP REPORTING SOFTWARE (now with an updated website): JediMark created a new website to distribute the newly-released 1.0.0-beta-2 versions of SleepyHead. In addition, he is using Apnea Board's Sleepfiles.com file-storage website to mirror his installation files. His new SleepyHead website is at:
http://sleepyhead.jedimark.net/

QUESTIONS ABOUT CPAP SOFTWARE? Our Software Support Forum is a great place to ask questions concerning CPAP-related software such as SleepyHead, EncoreBasic, EncorePro, Somnetics for Transcend, HDM's Data Viewer for the Z1, Apex Easy Compliance, and supplimental wireless data software such as Sleep Master and FlashPAP. The Software Support forum is at:
http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Forum-Software-Support-Forum

PRIVATE FILES & LINKS FORUM (updated with new files): This is our "secret" members-only forum containing links and instructions on how to obtain free CPAP software and other important files. We've had some updates over the past year, so you may wish to check it out.

NEW SERVER & FORUM SOFTWARE
(coming soon): Sometime around end of this year, we will be updating Apnea Board's forum software and switching to an updated server. These improvements should make the forum faster and easier to use.

Thank you for joining Apnea Board! If you have any comments, suggestions, questions, or can send us a CPAP setup manual we don't currently have, we'd encourage you to email us at: apneaboard@gmail.com

We don't send out emails much - once or twice per year at most. If you'd like to unsubscribe to these infrequent emails, simply follow the directions at the bottom of this email.

Best Regards and may you sleep well!

APNEA BOARD INFORMATION:

Apnea Board was created in 2004 as an open, educational discussion forum devoted exclusively to Sleep Apnea patients. We started Apnea Board because there seemed to be a lack of sleep apnea forums that were not influenced adversely in some way by commercial interests. At that time, the main sleep apnea forums were run by companies that sold sleep apnea related products, and their forum operations were affected by disruptive commercialism. We wanted a place for Sleep Apnea patients to meet that would not be affected by someone trying to "sell us something", so we made a promise to our members that Apnea Board operations will never be influenced by commercial interests. Apnea Board exists so Sleep Apnea patients can help one another.
