Sleepyhead humidifier status
G'day all,I am looking over last nights results on sleepyhead and in the "machine setting"section it is telling me that the humidifier status is disconnected.Ive looked through the clinical setup and I only see an option to adjust the humidity level,not to connect or disconnect?

I think its a bug in SH. I am using version. And using the same machine as you (PRS1 Auto 60 series). Some nights, it shows humidifier disconnected. Some nights it shows heated tubing disconnected.

And the nights it shows humidifier connected, it shows humidity to x3 whereas I have set it to x1 for a while.

So I believe its a bug. If someone shows it to be an error on my machine, I would like to know as well.
Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.

I not familiar with your CPAP model so this is speculation. SH has to read a parameter value in a file or check for the existence of a file to determine if the humidifier is connected. After looking at images of your machine, I would look at the xPAP/humidifer connection itself. Check for clean contacts and make sure that you have a good tight connection between the 2 units. I base this off the idea that if xPAP unit and the humidifier connection was loose, you'd either get an error message or it would record a large leak in the data. Please post your findings.

Thanks for the tips.i will check the blower and humidifier are connected correctly.It has been reporting large leaks since I set it up a few days ago,and I haven't had any leak issues in the first 30 odd days of therapy using the same mask.
