Hi lighthouse. I can see why you'd wonder if the treatment is doing anything at all, from your description of your physical symptoms.

I would encourage you to look at your data in SleepyHead and to post a screenshot on this board for people to look at and offer suggestions.

You don't need to worry about write-protecting the SD card. I believe that was for one particular model of machine (S9?), but it's not the model you have.

If you want to know, you turn on the write protect on the card by sliding the tiny plastic tab to the "down" position. It's a really tiny tab. My vision is so bad that I can barely see the thing.

When you load data into SleepyHead, you'll see an "events" graph on the "Daily" tab. That shows a little tick mark each time you have an apnea event. If you hold your cursor over the tick mark, it will show you how long the event lasted.

You'll be able to see a graph of your treatment pressure, too, so you'll know how much of the night it's near or at its maximum setting.

Just slide that little tab on the left side of the card to the lock position (direction away from the contact end.) Slide it back toward the contacts before putting it back in the PAP machine. If you forget to unlock it, the machine's screen will tell you it's locked.

Thank you for the reply, green wings. Smile

I appreciate the info on working with Sleepyhead. Glad to know I don't need to figure out how to write protect.

Can't wait to get Sleepyhead going later this evening and take a look at my data.

Thanks again for the help.
Have a nice day Smile

Thank you for the helpful information, justMongo.... I really appreciate it! Will get Sleepyhead up and running this evening.
