Sleepyhead? [Why is it so useful?]

Sleepyhead allows, when necessary, looking at the data in extreme detail, even down to a breath by breath level for the entire night.  It is with this level of data you can see exactly how your apnea is acting.  With MyAir you can see an average that the doctors use to say you are fine.  

We cab tell not only the fact that you are having leaks, but frequently what kind of leak you are having which allows better advice being given to you

I hope I live long enough to fill 2gb....  Big Grin

This is data from October 2016 to-date (the June 2017 date is when I formatted the FlashAir card)

While you are probably interested in feeling better, a lot of sleep doctors are only interested in your compliance, and that your AHI is below 5. Perhaps you will be one of the lucky ones and have a doctor that is actually looking out for your wellfare. Many of us have not been so fortunate.

If you would like to actually feel well, it is likely that you will need to optimize your treatment. That is where SleepyHead comes in. It allows a detailed look at your breathing throughout the night (not just the averages that the doctor is looking at), and the knowledgeable people here can identify what is happening and give recommendations to fine-tune your treatment.
