SleepyHead Reporting Question
   

Hi Everyone,

I started CPAP therapy two months ago, after a sleep study - because of having atrial fibrillation. This board has been extremely helpful to me learning to adapt. Thank you to all. It seems I have adapted fairy well and have been able to successfully use my ResMed S9 so that I am now down to less than 3 AHI/hour (sleep study showed 21).

Extra thanks to Mark for making SleepyHead software available to us all. It has been extremely helpful. I have one question about the reporting under the overview section. The usage data appears to report inaccurately for data older than 30 days. It is showing that I am using between 12 and 17 hours most days. For the most recent 30 days it shows accurate. Can anyone tell me if there is some setting I can change to correct this. All other data appears to report accurately. Thanks.

Hi PKelly251,
I had not associated the incorrect data with the 30 day limit, but yes you are correct. I also see the same thing. Data older than 30 days do appear to show incorrect results.

This is the first I've heard of this issue.

I would recommend you verify this by using ResScan, which ia also a free software package designed specifically for your brand (ResMed) of machine.

I have a different brand machine and do not have this problem. Plus, a lot of other folks here have ResMed machines and I don't recall any reports from them about this issue.

SleepyHead does report inaccurate hours of use currently in some cases.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Hi Pkelly, Welcome

I've had similar numbers too, during the same time period over the last 90 days, ResScan shows my daily average usage to be 8:07 hours per day while SleepyHead shows my average daily usage to be 14:18 hours per day, about 90% greater than it actually was.

I had started noticing the discrepancy more than a month ago but since SleepyHead IS BETA software, I assumed it will be fixed sometime in a future release, this is a good reason to continue using both applications because ResScan does match my hours used on my S9.

There's also a time discrepancy (sometimes) when viewing a daily session, the hours used under Details doesn't always match the session hours in the bottom right-hand corner where it shows the combined session hours for that day.

When I scroll-down under Details to Session Information it sometimes shows more than 1 SessionID and the timeframe will be off by a minute and it shows 2 sessions for the same basic timeframe (less a minute difference), I understand there's actually another SessionID generated by the S9 if I slept past Noon so the day rolls-over to the next but, why are there 2 separate sessions showing-up in SleepyHead with slightly different time-stamps? ResScan doesn't show the 2 sessions but for some unknown reason SleepyHead does.

Like I said, it's BETA software and hopefully this is just a bug that needs to be squished.

I have encountered that also. It gets the start time correct, but reports the end time by exactly one hour short. Strangely, it does it only sometimes and I can't figure out a pattern. I'm sure Mark is aware of it. Anyway, it is beta software and I didn't pay anything for it, so I'm still thrilled to have it.

Actually, it has been reported here before, I hadn't seen it until now. http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...uble-hours

RE: SleepyHead Reporting Question
Has the bug been reported on the SourceForge page? I think Mark asked that trouble reports be entered there. He may not be monitoring this site for bugs that are discovered.
