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

How do you change the time clock in this CPAP machine: IntelliPAP AutoAdjust Travel CPAP Machine with SmartFlex?

I had no idea that people had to change the clocks to their PAPs twice a year. I appreciate your help.

Just googled it and come up with this info, hope that is you're asking about
[The module you put on the back of the machine will maintain the time/date, then when you put the SD card into your computer/card reader and upload to the software, the correct time will be there. To 'reset' your machine, you just need to unplug and then replug the unit into the power source. You will also find that the module will adjust automatically to Daylight Savings Time or Standard, if you participate in that. It is based on the time zone you chose in setting up you patient info in the software]

Zonk, I don't quite have Devilbiss SmartLink module yet for my IntelliPAP AutoAdjust travel CPAP machine. Yes, my IntelliPAP AutoAdjust travel CPAP machine is only 10 days out of the box (brand new). But, I was told by the people over at Supplier #1 that since I had a Mac that I shouldn't get the software and Devilbiss SmartLink module with SD card. So, since I depend solely on Smartcode right now until I can figure out how to obtain Sleepyhead . . . I will attempt to change my PAP clock using the patient settings. .

RE: DST ends @0200 Sunday AM in most of the USA
I have a La Crosse digital clock I keep set to GMT and it syncs to Ft Collins whenever it gets to midnight. Computer monitors are within about a foot of the clock. It will sync if the monitors are turned off. It will not sync if the monitors are turned on. BTW, monitor frequency is 60 hz. If it doesn't pick up the signal at midnight (6:00 PM local), then it picks it up overnight once I turn off the monitors.

But, we are back to normal time and away from what I consider a frivolous exercise of daylight savings time.

Why don't they make a clock that gets a time signal from one GPS bird?

I think there are GPS clocks that do this, but unfortunately, they're not the cheap consumer grade stuff. The GPS time clock does NOT take leap seconds into account. However, there is data in the GPS signal that provides the offset between GPS time and CUT standard time.

I bought a prepaid Moto E Android phone the other day for $29. It works fine without being activated with a cell network and has a GPS. I guess you could use it as a GPS clock, but Androids supposedly synch the clock to GPS, but don't do the leap second adjustment. http://www.zdnet.com/article/the-time-di...-is-wrong/

The article is a few years old. Maybe Google finally fixed it by now. I need to play with mine and experiment on this. Mine is currently about 4 seconds out of synch, which makes not sense in a "GPS" sense. It did do the DST shift.

The GPS essentials app DOES show the correct UTC time synched to the leap seconds.

I guess you could buy a cheap android and use it as a GPS based clock, but the time handling still seems a little wonky. GPS Essentials seems to show the correct time, even if Android time is off, but it's just a tiny little time display. It seems someone could make a good "correct" GPS time display app that uses the whole display.

There's a new phase modulation scheme that's been added to WWVB. Supposedly, it is much easier to pick up. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be many (any?) cheap clocks that pick it up.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

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

You don't need to change it. In fact, if you've never changed it it's been wrong all summer and you never knew!

The only reason to change it is to make the time you see on software like SleepyHead match the actual time of day. Not a necessity and I think there's a way to make SleepyHead adjust for it, anyway.

No version of Android keeps track of seconds, so your android device can be off by almost a minute either way.

Just the way they built the OS, for some strange reason.

What is this changing of clocks you speak of? Here in AZ we are real men (and women) and change entire time zones. DielaughingDielaughing
