How to import CMS 50+ into Sleepyhead on Mac
I seem to remember seeing somewhere that I could download some software onto my Mac and import data directly from a CMS 50+ oximeter. Now that I want to do it, I can't find that information. Can someone direct me to the information or tell me how to do it -- or tell me it can't be done.

My current thought is to create the data file on a PC, move just the data file to the Mac and hope that Sleepyhead can handle that.

I am hoping that my apnea treatment is working and would like confirmation by using an oximeter. I happen to think that my oxygen levels are very low over night.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Best,
cmk17

RE: How to import CMS 50+ into Sleepyhead on Mac
If you do a search using these terms, "silicon labs cp210x usb to uart bridge driver linux" You will find a site that has the USB to UART drivers for a Mac. Using this driver should get you going.
Good Luck!

One assumes that you have downloaded SleepyHead for the Mac? (See the sticky post at the head of this forum for details)
I'm using it on an iMac under El Capitan (OSX 10.11.2) with no problems. My iMac has a built-in SD card reader and I can read the card and import it directly to Sleepyhead SleepyHead v0.9.8-1 (testing) with no issues.

RE: How to import CMS 50+ into Sleepyhead on Mac
Hey thanks for the feedback!

I use sleepyhead for the Mac and have been using it successfully since August 2015. I also figure out how to get the CMS 50D+ oximeter data into sleepyhead on the Mac. I downloaded the Silicon Labs driver and installed it. However Sleepyhead just keep crashing out instead of reading the data in from the oximeter. (At first I forgot to make sure the oximeter was on-- but then fixed that.) Sleepyhead just kept crashing.

Then I did what ever good computer geek would do -- I downloaded the OpenGL version of sleepyhead and re-installed it. (Why you ask? Why not?) Then I did what I had been doing time and time again and it immediately worked! It asked for the date and time to synchronized the oximeter against the APAP data and voila! More data, more information. Very cool -- except that my O2 reading dropped to 79 once during the night even though it otherwise hovered around 95. Oh well. I will use it a few more nights and see how much variability shows up in the readings.

Again -- thanks to all for the ongoing support.

Best,
cmk17

LOL -- Now retired, I've been supporting Unix/Macs since the days of LISA, so I started out with the OpenGL version -- never had any problems with it -- test version indeed!

Since I'm running 10.11.2 (El Capitan) and my iMac has a built in SD reader, I had no need of any external Drivers.

I'd work on updating the WIKI and the SleepyHead doc but since I've only had my Airsense 10 since (literally) Christmas Eve, and been on these forums since then, I am not yet eligible to be a WIKI editor. Minimally, it needs to be updated to the current generation of the ResMed line -- the five machines of the AirSense 10 line.

Bill:

The driver is to take the data off the CMS 50D+ oximeter directly. There is no SD card. I think you are referring to the CPAP machine's SD card. For that, no driver is needed.

Aha... OK. Yes, I was referring to the SD card.

Doing some quick checking I see that all of the various Oximeters are apparently products with USB interfaces which have proprietary software that runs on Windows only.

RE: How to import CMS 50+ into Sleepyhead on Mac
The software that comes with the oximeters runs only on Windows, but Sleepyhead has software loaders that work with the drivers for each OS. As I understand it, Macs and Windows need the drivers downloaded from Silicon Labs, but the drivers that come with most Linux distributions will do the job (they did for me with a CMS50F).

Comments like this need to be integrated into the main SleepyHead doc.
