Archived SleepyHead Discussions [Q&A Thread from Sep-2011 thru May 2014]
Hi all! I am a new member to the apnea community. I have been using my CPAP machine for only a couple weeks... No noticeable improvement, but I know that will take time.

I have a ResMed S9 Autoset with H5i humidifier and ClimateLine.

I am using SleepyHead to see all of my data and love it. But I wanted to know if I need to make backups? Every morning or night before I go to bed, I put the SD card into the computer, import the data to SleepyHead, look over it and go on with my business. I am assuming that once my data is imported into SleepyHead, it will all stay there? Or do I need to make backups of the actual SD card?

Thanks!
SleepyHead stores the data on your hard drive, but it may be in a form that's not usable by other programs. You can just copy the contents of the SD card to a folder on your hard drive if you're paranoid.

Thanks so much! I have been using SleepyHead and love it (it also works on my Mac), but recently got access to the ResMed software. You wouldn't happen to know if the ResMed software keeps all the records as well?

As for backing up the SD card, can I just copy and paste its contents every day? It keeps 365 days worth of records if I am correct?


On a different note, for reasons beyond my attention span, my doctors are getting me the ResMed S9 Pulse Oximeter that connects right to the S9 and records the data to the SD card.

I know SleepyHead is capable of reading the S9 Pulse Ox data, so will it just as easily as sleep data?

Thanks everyone!

The SleepyHead project wiki claims that you can use the S9 oximeter, but I haven't tried it myself. That oximeter kit is over US $1000 (I had a DME look into it).

I'm not a ResMed user, but I recall people mentioning that the detailed data is not kept on the card very long. You have to download it frequently or it gets lost. I don't know what that frequency is, but it might be once a week.

Reporting a SleepyHead bug. When I put my PRS1 BiPAP Pro Model 650P in CPAP mode, SleepyHead doesn't report the pressure. I know the pressure data is there because I can see it using EncoreBasic.

I'm running SH v0.9.2-1 on a Dell laptop running WinXP.

By the way, does anyone know what the difference would be between running this machine in CPAP mode at a pressure of 11.0 cm versus running it in BiPAP mode with the EPAP and IPAP pressures both set to 11.0 cm?

Hi Sleepster, why not upgrade to v0.9.3? It has some fixes for PRS1 series 60.

Not saying it'll fix this issue, but you never know...

Resmed S9 series keep only the compliance data for 365 days. Summary efficacy data is kept for 30 days and the high resolution flow data is only kept for 7 days, so unfortunately we have to be diligent about downloading it once a week if we want all the flow data.
