Hi ladytimes and Welcome to Apnea Board!

This will help you get started in your understanding.

Download the SleepyHead software, and start tracking your progress. There is a lot to learn, but you don't need to worry about it all at once.

You may also want to order the Clinicians manual for your machine.
