Here's my story. I used CPAP for several years until my machine broke down. Unfortunately, when I went to get a new machine they said I needed a new prescription. Also unfortunately, my sleep doctor had moved to another state. So, I had a whole new sleep study. The folks who administered the study said I would need to spend $2000 for a new machine and doctor to set it--all for some reason not covered under insurance. So in a rebellious and angry impulse I bought a slightly used Airsense 10 thinking I could treat myself. Triply unfortunately, the Airsense is not an Autopap and I do not seem to be able to access detailed statistics to guide me. For some reason Sleepyhead (mac version) does not show any details about AHI. Also, when I try to use the built-in/online MyAir I cannot use it because serial number, etc were used by former user.
I have used the Cpap for three nights and I seem to feel better. But I would like to be able to be more precise about my (self) treatment. Is there any way to hack the MyAir feature or to get a version of Sleepyhead or another software that will read my SD card from the machine?
Airsense is an entire series of machines. Look at the lower right -- It will say ResMed Airsense -- and under that, in smaller print, will be the specific name of your machine. Let's get that first.
