I've just downloaded Resmed ResScan software, My question is how often does one need to download data? Is this something one should look at weekly, monthly? I also have software that's called myAir were they send you minimal information daily via e-mail but it's nowhere near as technical as the clinical charts.
Just starting my therapy only 8 days into it, so I'm still learning how to get use to it all , hoses, mask, soreness under the nose, humidifer, mask leaks ,ect, ect, .
I don't want to become overly obsessed but just curious how other's monitor there progress.

The high sample rate data for flow and pressure are only on the SD card for 7 days. If you want to collect all data then each week you must download. Compliance data is on the machine itself for up to 365 days. Frankly, now that I have settled into a sweet spot in therapy, I don't download that often. The RLK data files pile up quickly; and before you know it, you have like a gigabyte of data in a folder on your computer. I have plenty of disk space; but my weekly backups take time; and I try to keep data that lives on the computer to a minimum.
I'm thinking you have a cellular modem on your A10. They are getting your compliance data that way. They can also change settings on your machine.
INFORMATION ON APNEA BOARD FORUMS OR ON APNEABOARD.COM SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS MEDICAL ADVICE. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF A PHYSICIAN BEFORE SEEKING TREATMENT FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SLEEP APNEA. INFORMATION POSTED ON THE APNEA BOARD WEB SITE AND FORUMS ARE PERSONAL OPINION ONLY AND NOT NECESSARILY A STATEMENT OF FACT.
You cannot be overly obsessive but for now you have bigger fish to fry
I would not worry about myAir, the machine display heaps of useful data on the screen providing "Essentials" set to "plus"
Actually, nothing technical about charts, most of the stuff are self-explanatory
I don't dig deep, just check the basic stuff, such as pressure, leak, events, flow limitation, and snoring
The proof of the pudding is in the eating, just the same with PAP therapy ... the proof is "how you feel"
Data can give you an insight of whats going on but cannot fix bad sleep, there is more to good night sleep than just good numbers
