Question PLEASE HELP ASAP with DOT Physical
Please help ASAP! My husband is a truck driver in the great state of Illinois. One of his requirements in obtaining his new DOT physical this year is to either have a sleep study or bring in a 30 day usage report. He has been successfully using cpap for almost 30 years now. His current machine is a Remstar Auto-A-flex 550p. I have been trying to figure out what I need to order so that he can print out a 30 day usage report but I'm totally confused!!!! Can someone please tell me what I need??? Thank you!

RE: PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!
you need a card reader for the SD card in the machine, and the Respironics software you can get from the downloads area of this site. If you have a recent laptop, Card reader is likely built in.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Hi Schneidersas,
Is there an SD card in the back of the machine? If not, you need to buy one.

If you have an SD card, then you can download the SleepyHead Software and import the data from the card into the software.

This software also works with your husband's machine:

Sleepyhead is better for figuring out if the therapy is optimal, but the Respironics software is what you should use to give to DOT. They would consider it to be more official.

RE: PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!
Hi Schneidersas,

If the machine doesn't have an SD memory card in it and needs a new one, buy a card which is the physically larger standard (original) size, not the newer (and much more common) mini or micro size SD card.

For example, WalMart in my area sells for around US$12 a two-pack of standard size SD cards holding 2 GB (two Giga Byte) each.

May be good to avoid SD cards holding more than 2GB because some of the older machines only work with SD cards having 2GB or less capacity.

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

Look at the machine, it probably came with one. Look for a slot to the left of where the power cord goes in. Likely it has a card; and you have 30 days data already.

One like this would work:

You can find those anywhere. Grocery stores, drug stores, any department store with an electronics department, even some convenience stores.

Depends on how quickly you need it.
