RE: SleepyHead Software - Beginner's Guide, Questions, Answers & Discussion
Oh-jeez My doc has the manufacturer's software for my CPAP machine, and copies my data chip. I suggest yours does likewise.

I was told to take my SD card to a pharmacy on the other side of the city, have it read and a printout done. As we all know data from one night only is not indicative or representative of one's condition & since docs as a rule don't go shuffling through pages of printouts, I decided to take my info on a USB flash drive. I was unable to achieve this with SH, so I used InfoSmart's PDF output instead, saved to my flash drive. My doc was able to bring all my data up on his PC & view records from where I began my therapy with my Icon+. My suggestion therefore (if possible) to Jedimark is to build into SH the ability to output all data to a PDF file. Perhaps this is already underway in the latest SH builds. I think it's a good idea.

Good idea Coroboree if he were amenable to that - but he is not, & I'm guessing he is not the only one. Most sleep docs know only Resmed. Not interested in any other make.

If your running a version of Windows, you can download "CutePDF" for free. It will install just like any other printer and will allow you to create a pdf file instead of sending to a conventional printer. When you select the PRINT option in SH(or any other program), just select the CutePDF as the printer. You will be prompted for a location and a file name to save it. On the other hand, if you're running a Linux machine most versions have a pdf printer module built-in to the base O/S. I hope this may be of some help.
Thanks for the tip sgearhart. Done that, but the document lists only stats for one night - no other info. InfoSmart lists the lot, all data, whatever is on the stick.

Are there any recording pulseox meters that work better than others with the Sleephead Software?

I slept almost 11hrs Thurs-to-Fri, SH showed 41 minutes total
SH shows the correct EPAP MIN, but no other settings. PS MIN/PS MAX is listed as 0.0 for both - way wrong

Just lots of craziness. So I downloaded and installed EncoreBasic which read the same SD card, and gave correct/reasonable data - so I guess that's what I'll use, at least I can see data this way.

What?

I'm sure I am not the first person to ask this, but for the life of me I cannot find any prior posts about it!

What is the best pulse oximeter with USB that is compatible with SleepyHead?

Question What am I doing wrong?
When I try to print a report from SleepyHead to .pdf, here's what it looks like.

RE: SleepyHead Software - Beginner's Guide, Questions, Answers & Discussion
Lambsydoats,

Mine version does this too. I've found it better to take a screenshot and print it.

Here's how to perform this:
1. Press Alt+PrtScn. This command captures just the active window and not the whole screen.
2. Open Paint by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Paint.
3. In Paint, press Ctrl-V or on the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Paste
4. If you want to cut out certain areas, Use the Crop function.
5. If you want to resize the image, on the Home tab, in the Image group, click Resize, and enter a new percentage or pixel size.
6. Click the Paint button Picture of the Paint button and then click Save or Print.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

Thanks! I did that and it worked.

Is the report function supposed to work--does it work for anyone else?

How come Norton Antivirus treats this download of Sleepyhead as having a virus and will not allow it to be run?
