My Dreamstation has bluetooth but no modem hooked up. If I did have a computer at home, how would I link the CPAP to the computer to have Sleepyhead download data?
Sorry for all the questions! I really do appreciate the help!

Can you then load SleepyHead at work?  You would need to take your SD card from your machine to work.

The SleepyHead graphs will really help us.  
And please, any info from your sleep studies about Centrals will also help us.

Thanks

Thank you to everyone on this thread for your help.  I went back through all my paperwork from my sleep study and the original Rx for the machine and I now realize that I am supposed to have a BiPAP instead of the Auto CPAP that I got.  I guess that is what I get for trying to go it alone instead of using the DME as recommended.  I contacted the DME that my original orders were sent from the doctor and they are working with me to get me the correct set up.  I plan on taking the 2 masks that I have in when they get me set up with the new BiPAP machine to see if there are options that are more comfortable.  

While I am at it, I may as well ask if anyone has recommendations on the best BiPAP machine.  I believe they have the Dreamstation BiPAP with the heated humidifier, just like the one I am already iused to using.  However, if there are better machines that I should be looking at, I would love to know.  

I will be back on here once I get the correct equipment and I will also be sure to have the SD card so I can get Sleepyhead.  You are all so knowledgeable and I am so glad to have a place to go to ask questions!
Thanks
