How often do you check your numbers?
How often do you download and check your numbers and results?

I check mine about once a week, or more often if I feel something was amiss during the night.

You can vote for more than one choice..

Someone once asked me how I adjusted to CPAP so well--I thought for a moment and said I had two choices CPAP or DEATH..The choice was easy..

RE: How often do you check your numbers?
Every morning I check the AHI and every week or ten days do a download of the data, but that's only because I'm newly on an ASV.

RE: How often do you check your numbers?
I download to ResScan once a week, just to keep the high rate data. Usually give a glance to the summary data, and if I see anything outside my norms, have a closer look.

Daily while we are getting everything dialed in. Once we are comfortable with where we are, I will probably check it every few days or so.

RE: How often do you check your numbers?
I download my SD card data into SH software every two weeks. I also download data on an as-needed basis.

Because every two weeks wasn't an option in the poll, I chose "As Needed"/

RE: How often do you check your numbers?
At first I used to download mine almost every day. Now I just look at the AHI averages on the on-screen display (PRS1 machines show the 7-day and 30-day averages). After one machine change and two doctor-ordered-but-requested-by-me pressure adjustments I've got my AHI down to about 2.

I'll download the data to SleepyHead every once a while, maybe once or twice a month or so?

Without software and diligent monitoring I'd never have gotten my AHI down this far. Now I just patiently wait as my sleeping patterns and day-time mood, functionality, and general attitude towards life slowly improve.
