This is all very so overwhelming and I don't know how I will cope with it all. It's not just a matter of sticking a mask on your face every night, if only.

are you getting a new machine Gabby? If your machine is new, never been used by another person, you will get a new, clean filter with your machine so you won't need to order filters right now.

Don't worry Gabby - we all cope. Just think of it as a fascinating new hobby which has the side effect of doing you a power of good.

As far as being a data viewer goes, SleepyHead was my preference back when I used an S9. ResScan was good for setting up multiple named reminders.

I'm talking about setting up regular reminders to appear on the device LCD screen. eg. 1 for a monthly filter change, another for a quarterly headgear change and so on.

I use both programs to look at the info. Seems like sleepy head has better range set up so you can read the info easier, at least on mine the ResScan has larger ranges. That may be adjustable and they both do the job. On the machine I bought used I just deleted the info on the card and all is good. It is great to be able to see what happened last night with the programs as my original machine you wouldn't find out till it averaged it in to a large group of info making it useless. Good luck and keep reading, lots of info here.

Cheers Paul, I know I will eventually get there. It's just the getting there. It is all a bit daunting. I really and truly do not know what I would do if I didn't have you good people to support and guide. The people that are close to me, they are not really interested, they say they are but I can tell. They haven't got a clue what I am going through. They say, oh yes I am feeling like that, it's the hot weather, blah, blah, blah. I have made up my mind not to mention anything any more, even when they ask me specifically, I will just brush it aside.
So thanks to you all.
Sleep Tight...

I do have to hire one for two months before I receive my new one Me50, so I will be sure to change the filter and make sure the SD card is wiped clean or buy a new one.
Thanks for your help.
