How many people use Notes?
#1
Question 
How many people use Notes?
How many people use Notes more than a little?
 
Do you track changes like using Sleep Supplements like Melatonin or any other changes to your regular routine?
Thinking-about

I use Notes to track changes to device settings, using or not using a collar, medicine changes, if I used sleep aid like Melatonin and more.

Yes, I use Notes almost every day. It helps me track and coordinate of nasal congestion, humidity levels, hose temperature changes, liquid Benedryl, bathroom breaks, mouth taping, and much more. Very helpful when looking back on past CPAP usage and changes made for good or not so good.

RE: How many people use Notes?
Good idea, I did not think about tracking nights with congestion.  

I wish there was a facility to record notes for the Doctor. Most of my stats are bad and probably could be ignored after I wake up middle of the night. Seems like input on congestion, prescriptions, OTC would be good input for their evaluation of the data. But we only wish they get past the summary.

I regularly spreadsheet all the variables I can think including the ones you mentioned, but am about to give up.
Too much work, too little yield.

I track if I had heart burn, if I remember waking up, if I took melatonin, if allergies were bad, if family woke me up, if I had rainout, if I had to go to the bathroom, if I had alcohol, and all sorts of other things.

I sometimes record my sleep on a webcam and I’ll use the notes to summarize any interesting details from the video since I don’t keep those long term.
