SH Oximetry wizard can't read SpO2 file

SH Oximetry wizard can't read SpO2 file
When I attempt to read the file (.SpO2 file) saved by my CMS-50F, I get the error in Sleepyhead Oximetry wizard "No oximetery module could parse the given file"  I can upload directly from the unit, and SpO2Review can read the file OK. Is there a reason SH can not read it?

RE: SH Oximetry wizard can't read SpO2 file
there is a dropdown on the sleepyhead o2 wizard to select the model you have
also sometimes It doesn't all upload the first time and a need to a second time to get the full night

From machine or charts for auto-cpap, set the min at 'med' median pressure, or 2cm below 90/95%. max at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings

Yes, I have done that. I have tried it several night in a row. Fortunately the SpO2 wizard DOES download directly from the device, even though it won't recognize the file.

RE: SH Oximetry wizard can't read SpO2 file
As far as I can tell from the code and git logs, oximetry file import functions haven't been looked at in nearly three years. It is highly likely that Contec has changed the format of "Oximetry Files (*.spo *.spor *.spo2 )". You might get additional information if you can turn on the 'debug' output, but it looked pretty sparse.

I am going to working on other projects for a couple or three months, but oximetry import and csv output for SleepyHead are two areas that I am going to be looking at when I can get back to them. The Contec file formats are not documented anywhere, AFAIK, so don't expect miracles.

RE: SH Oximetry wizard can't read SpO2 file
I just revived my old XP laptop and used SpO2 Assistant v3.0 to create an .SpO2 file, then copied it across to my Linux box which has SleepyHead 1.0.0-beta2 on it. I worked through the import code and it seemed to match, so I attempted an import. In spite of the Qt code telling it to be case-insensitive, it did not find the file. I changed the extension to .spo2, tried again, and it succeeded in importing the file.

I'm not sure how Windows and Mac versions of Qt handle the mixed case file names, so you might try changing the file extension to all lower case. I'm assuming your oximeter has firmware version 3.7 or newer, and that you are using version 3.0 of the software.

Tried changing it to .spo2, but still did not work.

RE: SH Oximetry wizard can't read SpO2 file
I just learned that there seems to be a ownership problem in Windows machines with the .SpO2 files.  When I attempt to import a .SpO2 file from the C:\Program Files (x86)\SpO2 Assistant V2.7.0\Data location, I receive an error stating: "No Oximetery Module could parse the given file .  .  . "   When I move this file to another location, D:\Backup\Medical\SpO2 Data in my case, SleepyHead will import it without a problem.

ThanksYES! Copying the file to another directory works.

I knew someone here would figure it out!

Thanks!
