Archived SleepyHead Discussions [Q&A Thread from Sep-2011 thru May 2014]
I have a System One RemStar Auto with A-Flex (560P). Last night was first night of use. The data on the "Info" screen on the RemStar appears to be correct.
However, I cannot read any of the machine data into SleepyHead. I am pointing to the drive letter of the SD on the PC. SleepyHead does read the correct machine model information.
SleepyHead reads the oxymetry data from the CMS50F just fine.
I am running a Windows 7, 64 bit system and, in fact, have tried the program on both a laptop and desktop with the same results.

Any suggestions?

Regardless, many thanks for all this effort.

You probably need to apply the patch before it will read data from your machine. The patch is a replacement .exe file that you just use to replace the existing .exe file.
Where do I find this patch?
Thanks.
Charlie

My best option would then be to opt for an S9. Help me pray Dreaming

First time I've posted in this thread, though I have been using Sleepyhead since nearly the beginning of treatment in Nov '12. Thanks so much for this software! It is much easier to read and comprehend than ResScan for me. I find the graphical interface more user friendly.

However, I've noticed that when looking at reports which have days in which I haven't used the machine, instead of computing ALL the days in a given period, Sleepyhead subtracts the non-used days from the total, then assesses compliance based only on the remaining days, giving erroneous results.

So, if, for instance, I used the machine 11 out of 14 days, which is really a compliance over 70%, and set it to report on that 14 day period, Sleepyhead decides that there are only 11 total days, with three missing days, and gives a compliance rate around 53%, which still seems off, since to get a compliance rate around 50% out of 11 days, one would have to miss 5 days, not three.

Or am I a complete mathematical idiot?

I'm using V0.9.1 - it won't update, and all I find on the site is that version, although I understand there is a newer version.

not to interfere with SH crowds but just thought to mention Resscan as you got listed in profile
Resscan will tell you most recent usage
for example when open Resscan, mine say: 12/12/2012 - 8/1/2013 ... 100%
median daily usage ... 7. hours

also the summary graphs shows total usage and there is 4 hours compliance threshold (red line)
which might be helpful for the DME if you,re tracking your compliance for insurance purposes

Thanks, zonk! It's true - ResScan is showing the usage correctly. I'm just nitpicky and obsessive about my usage stats, LOL. I hate it when they're inaccurate -especially when they make me look bad, LOL.

I suppose I shouldn't be, as presumably I am done with compliance. They told me to send back my modem. I've reached compliance for Medicare purposes - 30 days within the first 90 days of over 70%, etc. However, I got an automated call from the DME asking me about my usage stats after 60 days of treatment, which has me completely confused. I responded, but have no plans to send in my SD card unless a real person requests it, which would still upset me. As Paula says, if you get a motorized wheelchair and use it less than 70% of the time, does that make it medically unnecessary?

Medically necessary should only mean that your condition warrants the treatment, period. /rant.

Yes, but in the case of CPAP therapy many users are not compliant because the service provider is lame. I don't want my tax dollars being wasted on corrupt doctors and DME's who spend a fortune diagnosing patients and supplying them with CPAP machines, but don't provide the counseling, mask fitting, and follow-up care that is often necessary for successful treatment.

That is true of the majority of DMEs, unfortunately. If they did their whole complete job, Apnea Board would not be a necessity. But, the profit to DMEs is in the selling of equipment, not in servicing the customer after the sale. Thinking-about
