RE: Hypopnea events and SleepyHead
Hi me50: per the instructions I received, I was told NOT to install the extra drivers shipped with ResScan. FWIW, ResScan did import data once (a few weeks ago) when I first took a look at the software package -- I found SleepyHead easier to use so I've just been using that software instead.

I don't know what issue ResScan is having. It sees the card, but when going through its "download" process it gives a generic message (Error during download) with no details.

Putting all these symptoms together (broken SleepyHead graphs, missing flow data, unable to import into ResScan) I suspect something is wrong with the SD card or the S9 unit itself.

I'll try to eliminate all these variables and figure out what the problem is. Thanks!

RE: Hypopnea events and SleepyHead
No problem me50 -- this forum has been invaluable and I don't suspect every question to be answered immediately.

Curious results for the session last night though. The S9 on-screen display is saying my AHI for last night was 2.5, whereas SleepyHead is reporting that it was 0.13 (huge divergence). SleepyHead reports a single event over the 7-8 hours, whereas the on-screen S9 display is presuming I had upwards of 20 events...

I've not been able to get a new SD-Card yet, been too busy with work --- will report back on any updates.

RE: Hypopnea events and SleepyHead
Just to follow up, I purchased a new Sony SD Card (8 GB version was the smallest I could find), and the S9 is writing good data to the card. I'm finally seeing the "Flow Rate" graph as it should be shown (min/max -120/120 instead of -3950/3950).

Reformatting the old SD card may have been good enough to solve my problem, but I needed to mail that card to the DME for compliance. When they return it, I'll reformat it before using it again.
