SuperSleeper, you rock! Awesome software.

I was just diagnosed a little over a week ago. I had suffered for decades not knowing there was anything I could do.

I was furious when I had learned it recorded all this data and that they didn't allow me access to it. As an engineer I'm inclined to pay close attention to the data so that I can modify it for optimal performance.

I really like the software you made to read the data. It's easy to use and very functional. Thanks so much for providing this for us!

He does rock, but he's not the author. Mark Watkins (JediMark) is the author. SleepyHead is open source, and you can learn more about it at the SourceForge website.

You can also use ResScan, which is the comercial software for ResMed machines. It's free, too.

If you ever want to print reports to show them to your doctor you'll probably want ResScan as SleepyHead is beta software.

Sleepyhead says I slept for 25hrs last night. I wondered why it and ResScan had such a big difference in AHI. They're usually off by a bit each night but not this much.

Sleepyhead said I had an AHI of .8 while ResScan says it was 2.6. SH also says I had 3 sessions. I think I turned it on for a second, then remembered I'd not filled the humidifier, and turned it back off. I'd not even put the mask on yet.

I think it sees the 3 sessions as being exactly the same length of time. Times the 8:37 by 3 and you get that amount of hours. Any way to fix this? It's gonna really muck up the averages.

Noted. Thanks Mark!


I'm very sorry to ask a question that has been there already, but the thread is too long now to go through...
Is there a way to use the program with my machine: S8 with datacard. If I could only find the raw data...
Sleep-well
Breathe freely!
Furthermore I see a bug occurring on my Windows 8 machine: on starting version 0.9.2-1 a window tells me there is a new version. When I say yes to download, it shows a green progress bar and after that a red bar telling there was a problem. In the log it says that the file was downloaded to C:/Program Files (x86)/SleepyHead/Download/SleepyHead-0.9.2-1-beta-win32-update.zip
I could not find it there, but found it in C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\SleepyHead\Download\SleepyHead-0.9.2-1-beta-win32-update.zip
When I try to run the program SleepyHead.exe which is inside, an error comes up telling that mingwm10.dll is missing
What now?

What you do is start the program as "run as administrator". Then it will update. It's the only time you have to do it.

A Klerk,

SleepyHead does not support the ResMed S8 series, just the S9 series.

From their website:
Supports Philips Respironics System One Machines
Supports ResMed S9 CPAP machines
Supports DeVilbiss Intellipap machines

Your only option to view your data is to use ResScan instead.

You will either have to purchase the proprietary SmartCard reader on eBay or find a DME that sells it (much more expensive), or, I used to take my SmartCard to my DME with a flash drive and he would copy the data from my SmartCard to my flash drive, then I brought it home and downloaded it into ResScan.

If you're using Windows 8 I think you'll have to use ResScan 4.1_SP1, I don't believe version 3.16 is supported on Windows 8, I think it only goes up to Windows 7.

If you do buy a SmartCard reader, the least expensive option comes from an eBay seller in Israel for about half the price a DME would charge and takes a couple of weeks to arrive.

The S8's SmartCard also operates differently from the S9's SD Card, on the S8 you insert the SmartCard into the slot and it writes the last 4 days of data to it for download to ResScan, on the S9, you always leave the SD Card inserted so the high-resolution data can be recorded while you sleep.

Good luck!

Ren
