I'll take a look at sleepyhead, thanks for the recommendation.

Definitely watch the CSA with SleepyHead. CSA can get worse with CPAP for some people.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

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

Csa's do increase for some in the beginning of apnea. One study on pudmed says for many, they will go back down by 8 weeks on avg.
