WOW, Sleepyhead telling me AHI ZERO
Very excited, my numbers are consistently great. Over the weekend my AHI numbers were ZERO, The leaks were only 2.0, I think I have found my magic number, as this has been consistent for at least a week now. Amazing going from a setting of 17 that the tech told me I needed, then going down to 8 with my doctors permission, new nasal pillow and I think I am good. My AHI at 17 was 10.62.

Feeling very blessed, hope it continues.

RE: WOW, Sleepyhead telling me AHI ZERO
Congratulations!!! That is really fun, isn't it?

(I found my 2nd 0.0 on Sunday night, but it was a 'short sleep session', only 6 hours, so not sure that it counts. Smile -- my first 0.0 was even shorter when I stayed in a motel and the bed was very uncomfortable.)

Sweet Dreams,

RE: WOW, Sleepyhead telling me AHI ZERO
If you get an AHI of 0.0 for two nights in a row, unplug the machine from the wall, wait a minute, and plug it back in.

Resmed machines sometimes, not often, have this bug where they get stuck at 0.

And remember, the goal is not to get 0.0. The goal is to get anything less than 5. Sure, the lower it is the better, but since no two nights are the same, it's impossible to reach for a specific numerical goal and expect to hit it every night.

LOL, my sleeping time has been averaging about 8 hours, so I am a thrilled with the results.

RE: WOW, Sleepyhead telling me AHI ZERO
If the S9 Elite is capable of showing you the night's AHI with its on-screen display, I would check that and compare to the SleepyHead data. I have seen where SleepyHead's AHI numbers are significantly less than what the machine's on-screen display reports for the same night.

RE: WOW, Sleepyhead telling me AHI ZERO
Last nights reading was 0.53, so it was not zero 2 nights in a row. My AHI has been running as follows: The leak rates have been very low as well. I am using a nasal pillow and I pin the sides into my hair and it does not move when I move. I sleep on my side

How do you access the menu to see the card in the machine?

1.90
0.70
0.23
0.24
0.93
0.41
0.00
0.53

RE: WOW, Sleepyhead telling me AHI ZERO
Is the bug with the DATA or with the machine's SUMMARIES of the data?

In other words, if you stick it into Rescan do you get the correct numbers or does it stay stuck on 0.0 also?

Does SleepyHead see the events?

Paula02 speaks truth. I got hit with this myself. I had a zero night, and then the next night it was zero again, and again the next night. I know I'm damn good, but not that good. So I unplugged the machine to force it to reboot. No more zero nights after that. Thinking-about

I downloaded the actual RESMED software and this is the summary, so I think both match quite well??????? Anyone??? I will reset the machine just in case however.
