Archived SleepyHead Discussions [Q&A Thread from Jun-2014 thru Aug 2015]
I'm a noobie at SleepyHead software, but even I can tell that, YES, you can absolutely tell if their PAP machine usage was =>4hrs per night, for at least 70% of those 30 nights since their PAP machine was set up. SleepyHead gives detailed graphs of the sleep usage; even I can see exactly how much the machine has been used. I click on the DAILY button for daily graphs, and then click backwards for each day. Or, I click on Overview for bar graphs to show a longer time period.

Now, if you are asking for one data point that says "was it =>4hrs per night, for at least 70% of those 30 nights since their PAP machine was set up", as opposed to the reader actually looking at the graphs and figuring that out ..... ie if you are asking for a ONE CLICK answer to get the money, without caring about the actual health of the sleeper ..... I dunno about that. Other answers?

You have no idea how wonderful your support has been, even though, I have no idea where I really should insert my questions in this list of threads, but, right now, you have really really helpedme. I'm going to loooove SleepyHead. Of course, my usage, far exceeds the overnight usage. Since I have a Neuromuscular disorder that effects my breathing, I use my VPAP, A LOT, more than at night. Most of the time. It is on me most of the time. Its not uncommon to see it being used for up to 18 hours per day. I love SleepyHead software. Whoever the inventer was, I would really like to know what is his email, because I want him or her to know how much of a blessing that they were. I mean, to be able to see something similar to a mechanical ventilator flow and pressure waveform, FOR EVERY SINGLE BREATH, that I have taken during my course on the machine, is utterly amazing. It truly amazes me that SleepyHead exists like it does. I mean, I truly would love to talk to the patient who actually made this possible to use at NO COST WHATSOEVER. Now, if I can just get the ResMed Pulse Oximetry module and cables, I'd be really really doing well. That's actually in the pipeline right now as I'm attempting to do this. LOL. I have no idea if there is a way to get those on ebay, because I do not know much about the ResMed S9 oximetry setup. But I am going to find out for sure.

Sleepyhead shows compliance on the Statistics screen, along with usage hours and AHI. This is the main information that a doctor is really concerned about.

May I make a suggestion? You don't need to post the Sleepyhead manual in order to ask your question.

Oh, WOW. Thank you very very very very much for your assistance. That is wonderful that I can get the Usage hours even in the Statistics screen as well.

Scroll down to the last post made. Under that you see a blank space titled "Quick Reply". Just type your questions in that blank space. As sgearhart pointed out, there's no need to click on "REPLY WITH QUOTE". You do that only if there's something in a post that you want to respond to specifically.

I can't seem to get any data other than usage compliance.

I get a large frowning face and a message about my machine being set to 'compliance only'.

Can that be changed/corrected?[/font]

Since your not using Sleepyhead, I'm assuming you want the AS-10's Clinician manual.

Besides the link, at the top of the page, here is the link to the CPAP Setup Manuals:
The online quick manual:

Thanks sgearhart for the information. I have researched in the manual but it does not address the 'compliance only' issue. It states that the 'detailed data' is available by both SD card and by wireless connection to ResSev software. It mentions therapy mode once but I haven't seen a setting to change the data stored/mode. Should the 'detailed data' be viewable in the sleepyhead software as well as ResServ?
