SleepyHead software... does it support DreamStation now?
Good morning. I am new to sleep apnea and got my DreamStation on Friday. I'm reading about all of the info you can get from software. I have DreamMapper, but I'm understanding that it provides very little information compared to SleepyHead. Does SleepyHead now support DreamStation? If so, how do I go about getting it?

Thanks,

Helen

There was a "work in progress" beta test version available that worked with DreamStation, but the author removed it from public availability.

Hopefully, he will restore it or release a new version soon.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

SH 1.0-beta is still not available from the SH Snapshots folder on the download site.

While you are waiting for SH 1.0-beta to be re-released, you could use Encore Pro to look at the detailed data from your DreamStation. There's a link to request a download link for EncorePro posted to the private area of the forum. If you can't find when you are logged on, let me know and I'll give you a link to the posting.

Add me to the list for SleepyHead and DreamStation. After taking a look at Encore Pro, I'll wait for SH.

It is DEFINITELY worth getting SleepyHead when it is available (I currently have the beta version) and if you are reasonably computer intelligent, then go for it if Mark releases the beta again before the final version.

If you can build it from source, it's out on github Smile

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night
