Machine Incompatible with Sleepyhead...Now What?
#1
Hi Everyone,

I am new to this forum and I'm really in need of help trying to get my sleep fixed because right now it's horrible.

I downloaded Sleepyhead and it says it's doesn't work with my model machine which is Philips Respironics System 1 (Model220P). It seems this software is important to tracking my progress and problem solving.

I am open to straight up buying a new machine compatible with it because I don't want to keep wasting time. Does anyone have any suggestions what I should do from here? Is there any other good software to try or some good used machines I could get for a reasonable price that is compatible with Sleepyhead?

Thanks!

It may be helpful to post a summary of your sleep test results. Some machine types are specific to types of issues beyond simple obstructive apnea.

Astra, the best deal out there right now is the Dreamstation Auto 500. The prices vary day to day, but the lowest I have seen is on Amazon today at $350 complete with heated hose and humidifier. This machine is fully data capable and a huge step-up in features and quality to your old CPAP SE.

Keep the SE as a backup and get a great primary machine, but act fast because the price does change.

Sorry I have to get my post count to 4 real quick to post a link to a machine I found on craigslist. I was wondering if you would all be so kind to check it for me real quick and make sure it is good.

It's a ResMed Airsense 10 Autoset CPAP. They say it's brand new and asking for $300.

Astral, don't post a link to a Craigslist as since it will probably get edited by a moderator. Just tell us what city it is advertised in. I see Airsense 10 Autosets come up on CL and $300 is a fair price assuming non-smoking household. Ask for the run hours, but unless it's over 5000 I wouldn't worry about it. Great machine.

It's in Akron, OH. They say it's brand new. I'll make sure to test it if I go see it tonight. But just wanted to see if there are any other questions to ask the seller or things to check before buying it.

I asked them how they got it and why they're selling it.

Thank you,

No as long as you have a comfortable transaction with a seller that benefits both of you, life is good.

Good luck! That sounds like a fantastic deal.
