I'm still trying to squeeze every bit of efficiency as I can out of my machine, so I still take a look although much less frequently than when I started. I tend to look every 3-5 days just to make sure I'm on track.

I suspect once I'm comfortable with the settings I'll push that back to what others have said in this thread.

After about 6 months, I went to downloading monthly or so unless I was having problems with leaks.

Thanks for the replies all. While not a newbie to CPAP I am new to Sleepy Head and being more interactive with my treatment. I download every few day now. My AHI has been great around <2 and lately <1. My biggest problem has been leaks but I think with the new pillow and a chin strap they are much more controlled, still there but better. I look at the data to also try and squeeze out the most efficient settings.

I had to vote every few days because I am trying to just relax and not be so anal about it.
CPAP is a journey like “The Wizard of Oz”. It’s a long slow journey. You will face many problems and pick up many friends along the way. Just because you reach the poppies, it doesn’t mean you are in Kansas.

My data is downloaded daily but only because I have it fully automated.  I review the data every now and then, no set pattern.

I guess I missed something in my FlasPap training. I thought the only way to download the data to my computer was to open flashPap, scan the card, and download the files. How do you automate that?

I look at my data daily but that's because I'm a dataholic. I may need to attend meetings. Oh-jeez My wife tells me I've found as new hobby.

I'm just over 2 months into my xPAP journey, so who knows how it'll be once I really get the groove on?  But for now, I check every few days, or at least once a week. 

Mainly I just check when I had a weird night, or I tried something new, and I want to see if that affected anything.

The problem is... I don't really know what I'm looking at!  LOL  I need a primer on how to read Sleepyhead data, and understand what affects what, why, and how.

Sometimes I peek at the AHI on my machine's screen, just if I'm curious.  But I have to get my glasses on to see it, and then scroll through the pages... so I only look if I really am curious.
