APNEA BOARD NEWS - 2019


15-Year Anniversary Edition



Hello!

On behalf of the entire Apnea Board staff, greetings!

We're proud that as of this month, we have been online and serving Sleep Apnea patients for over 15 years!

Apnea Board is the world's most helpful and friendly CPAP and Sleep Apnea forum.  We support the "patient-empowerment movement" (the belief that you are best served when you take an active role in your own CPAP therapy).

Just a few items of interest:


OUR MEMBERSHIP RANKS CONTINUE TO GROW:
 Apnea Board currently has over 75,000 registered members who have made over 292,000 posts on our forums.  Last month, we had visitors from 134 countries.  The majority of visitors come from the U.S., Germany, Canada, Australia, China, Great Britain and France.

HIGHER LEVEL OF ADVICE:  We've noticed that our members have grown in knowledge and experience over the years, resulting in a much higher level of advice on the forum.  Many times members have commented that the assistance they've received on Apnea Board helped even more than advice from their own health care provider.

THE APNEA BOARD WIKI:  Please be sure to check out the Apnea Board Wiki, as we have several updates and many new articles up now on a variety of sleep-related subjects, such as:

ADDITIONS TO OUR CLINICIAN'S SETUP MANUAL LIST:     We've added a lot more CPAP Clinician Setup Manuals to our web site to help you control advanced settings on your CPAP machine.  We currently offer setup manuals for 195 common machines, plus directions on how to enter the setup menu and change CPAP pressure settings for several others.  Some manuals are available for direct download;  others available through email.  During the past 12 months, we've distributed a total of 48,447 manuals.

NEW:  OSCAR software (Open Source CPAP Analysis Reporter):  In light of the SleepyHead project shutting down in February, a group of dedicated developers have formally established a legal fork of the now-closed SleepyHead project.  The new software is called "OSCAR" and it's poised to bring CPAP data reporting to new levels of excellence.  The official OSCAR download page is at:
https://www.SleepFiles.com/OSCAR/

QUESTIONS ABOUT CPAP SOFTWARE?  Our Software Support Forum is a great place to ask questions concerning CPAP-related software such as OSCAR, EncoreBasic, EncorePro, Somnetics for Transcend, HDM's Data Viewer for the Z1, Apex Easy Compliance, and supplemental wireless data software such as Sleep Master and FlashPAP.  The Software Support forum is at:
http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Forum-S...port-Forum

PRIVATE FILES & LINKS FORUM:   This is our "secret" members-only forum containing links and instructions on how to obtain several free CPAP software packages and other important files.  We've had some updates over the past year, so you may wish to check it out.

Thank you for joining Apnea Board!  If you have any comments, suggestions, questions, or can send us a CPAP setup manual we don't currently have, we'd encourage you to email us at:  apneaboard@gmail.com

We don't send out emails much - once or twice per year at most.  If you'd like to unsubscribe to these infrequent emails, simply follow the directions at the bottom of this email.

Best Regards and may you sleep well!

APNEA BOARD INFORMATION:

Apnea Board was created in 2004 as an open, educational discussion forum devoted exclusively to Sleep Apnea patients.  We started Apnea Board because there seemed to be a lack of sleep apnea forums that were not influenced adversely in some way by commercial interests.  At that time, the main sleep apnea forums were run by companies that sold sleep apnea related products, and their forum operations were affected by disruptive commercialism.  We wanted a place for Sleep Apnea patients to meet that would not be affected by someone trying to "sell us something", so we made a promise to our members that Apnea Board operations will never be influenced by commercial interests.  Apnea Board exists so Sleep Apnea patients can help one another.
