Hi snuffles, welcome to the forum!
You insert the S8 datacard into the machine right side up, but you insert it into the USB card reader bottom side up (copper traces up).
Also, when importing data into ResScan, on the second and later times you do this, you will be prompted to either overwrite or discard. This refers to overwriting the data ResScan has from earlier downloads, or discarding the new data (for days where ResScan already has some data, no matter how little). I think it is safest to always choose Discard, or you may overwrite earlier days with only summary data, if that is all the card still holds for the previous days. (Not sure if this bug applies to latest version of ResScan.)
A "day" begins and ends at noon. If you WANT to overwrite a previously-downloaded day, simply right click on the session in the navigation window on the left, and delete all data for that session. That way, when you next download the data on the datacard and select Discard as always, it will bring in whatever is on the card for that day, since there is no previous data for the deleted day.
If you ever Exit without first Saving the new download, the new download will be lost and need to be re-downloaded if you actually wanted to save the data.
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.
WOW thanks folks... lots of great info...
I have 2 S8 machines. I'm not that smitten with the S9 so I'll probably stick with the S8.
Will get the manuals and read up.
Thanks a bunch..
Yep. Kittens is mild to some of the responses some of us have had. Mine said "it is information you would not understand. only your doctor can."
