You can take out the SD card and immediately put the switch to 'lock' put it in your computer to download the info then eject SD card, unlock it and pop it back into the A10. It will not affect anything.
I have done it 3X to put my info into SleepyHead and my sleep doc wants to see the info this week.

The suffocation feeling is mostly in the morning when I wake up.

Last night was my fourth night on CPAP and I feel like a new person :-)

CPAP is working! No depression at all today...
