How to read the RES MED S BiPap Date
#1
I am in my 5th day with the BIPAP machine.....and I have no clue how to read the info data which must be info about my sleeping, leakage, breathing data. Is there a place to go where this is explained?

I am averaging 7 plus hours a night masked up.........one thing I have noticed, besides looking at the ceiling a lot, is I do not make the 3 to 4 trips to the bathroom nightly.

Hi Ed,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
It would probably help you to get the data-management software found here on the board. There are two different ones. One is called "Sleepyhead," )which is an open-source software,) and the other is called "ResScan," which is "Resmed" software, and I think,they are free.
I don't know much about any of this since I'm unable to use it, at this time, but hang tight and someone who knows more about this than I do will be able to help you with your questions soon.
Best of luck to you.

Thanks. I have a phone attached to the back of the machine that relays this info to the provider daily. This is suppose to happen for the first 30 days....then I meet with my doc and I assume he will give me an analysis. The respiratory therapist at the providers site (the one who receives the info) said he couldn't give out the info (only doc) but that I should feel encouraged.

To be honest, I need encouragement as the nights are long and not too sure my sleep was not better before.

I will stay the course and see in 30 days what is what.....in the mean time I hope I can get someone to help me interpret the info data that the machines displays.

can you give a screen print of the data that the machine displays? Have you been able to download the software and import your data in the software?

Trying to help but I need a little more info!!

Do you have windows 8 on your computer/laptop? I can't see what you posted.

You can download ResScan (for Resmed machines) or Sleepyhead and import your data there.

Then, if you want to share it with us, you can show the stats by using the FN and insert print screen key and paste it in paint, save it to your desktop and then download it in a post. This is how I do it with Windows 8. It's easier with Windows 7, or at least faster

Let me know if this makes sense or if you have more questions, etc.

Five days in and you're getting 7 hours -- you're doing great.

OSA causes blood pressure to rise to try to keep oxygen flowing to cells. Elevated BP pushes fluid through the kidney nephrons. So, that is a possible explanation for less frequent need to void urine.

I have read several posts where they say they woke up often to make trips to the bathroom. In the past, I did wake up every 2 hours but it was never due to the need to go to the bathroom. I have a dr. appt. on Tuesday to see about another sleep study and I will discuss this with the dr.

I have the software loaded and can read the info .....they have a glossary that helped clear up abbreviated terms, indexes and the like.

Not too sure I understand the wake, sleep, time.....as this just doesn't add up
