Sotware needed for Mac
I have a Phillips REMstar auto flex CPAP and I use a MAC. The "sleep reader" program that is required is only a Widows application. Is there a software app. the I can download for MAC and read my machine card? Thank you.

There is a sleepyhead version for the mac. You'll want to install the latest unstable build. Don't let that scare you, it's very stable and works very well.

Hi ebyron11, welcome to Apnea Board!

You can check out this thread concerning SleepyHead and go to the link in that thread to download the MAC version:

http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...e-software

Keep in mind that if you have a Series 60 PR System One (newer unit), you may have to install the Sleepyhead Mac patch for those series of machines, which is explained in that post.

Also, I removed your personal email address from you post, as if you leave it there, you're likely to get spammed.

Yep, works great except it's rare any mac hardware will have an sd card reader now a days. Had to buy a usb sd card reader for when I use it on my mac systems.

RE: Sotware needed for Mac
I'm running SleepyHead on my Mac (Mavericks) and it works pretty well. Make sure you lock the SD card before you access it or else the Mac will put its .ds stamp on it. That stamp will mess up most of the CPAP machines.
