Howdy scooterbts, welcome to Apnea Board!
First, I would recommend that you view the video on this Wiki page about Sleep Disordered Breathing, so you have a good introduction concerning Sleep Apnea:
Your AirSense 10 has an SD memory card that stores your machine's data. You can take that card out and use a SD card reader to read access the data on your personal computer (a USB-connected SD card reader usually costs less than $20 from most electronics stores).
You must first download and install one of the free computer software packages for reading and analysing your data. ResMed's proprietary software is ResScan (click here for instructions on how to obtain ResScan), or you can use the open-source SleepyHead software package (click here to download SleepyHead). Many people prefer SleepyHead for ease of use.
If you choose to use ResScan, a good video on that is here.
Note that the video covers ResScan version 3.12, and although the current version is 5.5, it still has a lot of useful and pertinent info in it.
If you use SleepyHead, although the article was written about a previous version of SleepyHead and it needs to be updated, RobySue's Beginner's Guide to SleepyHead is very good.
There's also a good ResScan Interpretation Guide (PDF document) that you may find useful.
If you need help with any of the technicalities of either software package, feel free to post your questions in the Software Support Forum.
If you need help interpreting your data, post your questions here in the Main Forum.
Hope this helps!
