Well duh...

OK, this is the first time I've pulled this one. After I woke up the first time I took the mask off to go use the facilities. Came back to bed and carefully put my mask back on, lay down again and went to sleep. Only thing was, I forgot to plug the ding dang hose back in!

So my machine thinks I only slept just over four hours last night. The AHI was pretty darned good though, since my events tend to cluster after that first sleep session and didn't get recorded today...

I wonder if I should make a check list...

Well you could make a list, but you probably won't look at it. :grin:

I usually just push the knob on machine to turn off, then unhook my mask from hose. I leave the hose attached to the machine, and my mask is still on my face.
This way when I'm ready to come back to bed, I just attach my mask to the hose and turn the machine back on.

I think we all have are quirky routines! Oh-jeez
Whatever works for us.

I do that too. Would be a pain to try and get everything attached again in the dark. Given that I'm not quite used to it yet.

I would probably scare the life out of my wife if she walked in to the bathroom while I was just wearing the mask.


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

Well, would scare a burglar away if nothing else! I'm referring to myself.

This morning no data on my card for last night. Seems I didn't put it back in the right way. Oh well at least my modem will have sent the data to Resmed, so have a look at the "My Air" site. Oops - no data showing there! Not just for today but for yesterday, and I know it was definitely there yesterday. Paging back a few days shows no data for any day.

Drat.

Ed,

That's why I opted to use a FlashAir SD card along with the SleepMaster software utility. My card stays in, and I can access it anytime I'm on my home network. Another benefit, is that the machine card reader wear and tear is greatly reduced.

1. What is this FLASH AIR sorcery you speak of? Do you replace the sd card that is in the machine? Mine says Philips...
2. This morning I tried to turn off my alarm by repeatedly hitting the button on my BiPap.

Hodor,

The FlashAir card is an SDHC card that replaces the one in your machine. It contains a wireless chip that will communicate with your computer network.

Warning: Not all FlashAir cards work for this. The way the card works makes it squirrelly to use. Someone wrote a nice "sleepmaster" program that makes it a lot easier to access the data wirelessly with a FlashAir card, but it's still geeky and prone to problems.
