Archived SleepyHead Discussions [Q&A Thread from Sep-2011 thru May 2014]
I'm obviously a "Newbie" on ApneaBoard.Com and this is my 1st POST on this THREAD.

I have downloaded SleepyHead beta v0.9.3 and thus far have learned a lot about my equipment and the multiple past Rx tries by the "Sleep Lab" staff at my HMO medical service provider.

I am running SleepyHead somewhat differently on my Windows system which has Windows 7 Pro. When I initially installed SleepyHead, I started having a lot of "BlueScreen" crashes. I also run Windows XP mode on a virtual HDD on my machine, something I needed in order to run an older copy of AutoDesk's program "AutoSketch" v7.0.

Since I couldn't put up with the many system crashes, I tried installing SleepyHead on my WinXP mode OS on the virtual HDD and uninstalled it under the underlying Win 7 pro OS. This solved my BlueScreen crash problem!

I have yet to figure out how to submit official trouble reports to Mark!?

Sam Ross... aka MrSafety !

Hello Mr. Safety,

The project page for SleepyHead on SourceForge has a bug tracking interface that is specific to the development project. The link to the project page can be found here. This is where Mark has asked people to report any bugs.

Hope this helps.

You will need to create an account on Source Forge in order to leave feedback such as bug reports, requests for enhancements, etc. The good news is it doesn't cost anything.

Hello all,

I am new and just downloaded SleepyHead. I read the Wikipage on SleepyHead with some short documentation. However, I am still don't understand some of the graphs listed in sleepyhead. Does anyone know where I can find out more information about each of the graph under "Daily" "Overview". For example, there is a graph called "Snore". What is this?

thanks...
SleepyHead glossary http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/sl...e=Glossary
Snore: A loud upper airway breathing sound during sleep, without episodes of apnea.
Snore detection in Respironics System One..Vibratory snore is detected when a specific frequency is detected during the inspiratory portion of the patient's breath. Vibratory snore is disabled at pressures greater than 16 cm H2O

Snore Index: A measure based on the amplitude of the vibrations generated by a patient’s snoring

Thanks Zonk. The snore graph in SleepyHead has a range of 0.0 to 2.0. I am still trying to understand a the snore graph. It started out at 0.0 and went up and down between 0.0 and 2.0. What does a snore data point = 0.9 means?

Hi newuser777
I don,t use sleepyhead, ResScan shows snore on a scale ranging from quiet to loud

I've never heard any meaningful definition of the "snore" scale other than "higher is more."

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

I think whether or not you experience a snore at all or how many times a night is useful. The graphs show you when you snore and how many times. Correlate that with the scale and that might be useful.

I want to move my SH files on my laptop to my desktop. At the same time, while cleaning house, I want to remove a single attempt to add in oximetry data. I've never been able to get it to work but the data is still there. It's one night but it takes up a huge amount of space on the front page.

So, 1: how do I remove that oximetry data?

and 2: how do I easily transfer that data from one puter to the other? just copy over the /Documents/SleepyHeadData folder? But then how do I get SH to see the user? Will it automagically do it?
