SleepyHead showing Humidifier Disconnected
#1
I just loaded about 4 months worth of data into SleepyHead so I could try and see why I have been awaking early (~3:45-5:00) once again with apnea-like headaches although not as severe as the ones prior to diagnosis.  I noticed my AHI has gone up from consistently below 1 to between 2 and 3.  I realize this is not a huge jump, but something has brought on the return of my apnea headaches.  In looking at SleepyHead, in the bottom left corner under 'Machine Settings' it says 'Humidifier Disconnected'.  Looking backwards, it has been showing this since January 7th this year.  However, I have been using the humidifier nightly with my PR 560 auto machine and it appears looking at it that it is still quite connected.

Any ideas?

I have found the humidifier setting reported by Sleepyhead to be unreliable. I get the same thing on my 60 Series BiPAP. You know it's connected and working, just ignore the setting record. Are you using manual settings instead of System One? That can cause it.

Same here.

SleepyHead usually reports it as disconnected.  Occasionally, it says connected.

I rarely change my humidifier settings, so I just ignore it.   Eat-popcorn

OK thanks guys.  I have never noticed that it said disconnected in the past.  And I use the heated tube on auto.

Would depend on a specific flag being set that indicates the presence of a humidifier or not and whether Mark was able to isolate that in hexinator.


Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I don't have the humidifier installed on my AS 10 . SleepyHead v1.0.0 says humidifier on, level 4.
