If insurance isn't paying for it, i.e. you do not have to prove compliance, your data will go nowhere. No one will query the machine for the data. If you sign up for MyAir, ResMed will pull some data off your machine for the MyAir score you'll see on their site. If you are using SleeyHead you already have more data than what will be shown on MyAir.

It might be a good idea to keep airplane mode off since your machine will get software updates from ResMed if they release any.

You might want to get SleepyHead software (free, link at top of page). I beleive it's more detailed or at least easier to use than the Resmed software

I recommend you also download the Sleepyhead software. I have the A10 machine and I use both the ResScan and SH software but I am a data junkie. The data goes to your DME and doctor. The idea is that you don't have to mail in or take your SD card to the doctor. Additionally, occasionally, ResMed sends out machine software updates over the modem. If you are in airplane mode you will not get these updates.

Ok. Thank you. On the software. Which would be better? Resmed or Sleephead.

If you are not running Windows, Sleepyhead is the pretty much the only choice. Smile that said, I personally like it better than the little I have seen of Resmed. Most people on the board are more familiar with SH too - but your doc is likely to be more familiar with Rescan.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

I use both. I use ResScan to see what my DME and Dr are seeing. I use SH to get a closer detailed look at the data. Download both, use them, and see what you like.

I am running windows 10. I will try both. My doctor did write a prescription. I ordered my unit myself. I think the data from the unit is going no where.

It is at least going to Resmed. Go to My Air and open an account and you will see some data . This is their cheerleading web site.

MyAir is mostly useful when you are away from home. Had a crappy night? You can check to see if you had mask problems or..well, just a crappy night.

As far as I know, my doc doesn't get any info because I had to go with a supplier they don't deal with (Medicare bid program). The PA actually liked the Sleepyhead data better than the stuff from Resmed. Smile

Up here in the Great White North I've been told we have to pay to use the 'wifi' and have the results automatically sent to either DME or sleep doc etc. - at least that's what the RT at the DME told me.
