FlashAir vs. Philips Respironics card
#1
Hi, I would like to go to a flashair card so I can transmit to Sleep Master then to Sleepyhead (all downloaded and ready), but when I had my first appointment with the Sleep Center, they had me bring in the Philips Res card (just card, not machine) to download the data.  The Nurse Practitioner changed my settings, though, from her desk (took a day to show up on the machine).  

If I use the Flashair, will they be able to read that card?  Or if I put the Philips Res card back in the night before my next appointment, would the last month's data be loaded onto it?

Not sure that I will be going back to the Sleep Center (next appt. in 2 months), as my co-pay is high and my first and only appointment at the Sleep Center didn't hold a candle to this forum (would rather donate $ here  Smile ), but it may be a consideration re the use of flashair (have not bought one yet).

Thank you in advance for your thoughts on this.

You can take your Flashair but I think I'd copy its contents to a regular(less expensive) card to take.

I did this when I had to get a compliance report to prove compliance for my DOT medical certification. I have a standard sd card that stays in the card reader on my computer that I import the data to from my Flashair card. I import my data into SleepyHead from the card in my computer and took it to get a compliance report to take to my DOT exam. It also gives me an extra backup of my data.
