What Software are people using
#1
I see reference to people using software to monitor their progress but I don't have a CD for that. I can go onto the ResMed site to login where I can get the stats.

I read something like .6 events per hour sometimes more.. what does that mean? I know it's not removing the mask as that is a separate value...

The two that would apply to you are ResScan and Sleepyhead both of which are available for download in the software support area. You will need an SD card reader to read the SD card in your machine on your computer once you download the software.

Thanks, I can read SD cards. Would the software show any different results to what I see on the resmed 'myair' site? thanks

It will show the same AHI. It also shows the breakdown of events by type and duration. Other data such as flow rate and pressure are presented graphically versus time.

Yes, no comparison whatsoever. Once you start using the software, my Air seem like child play Smile
e.g. sample from SleepyHead

My Air is very basic and more of a cheer squad. Sleepyhead and ResScan will show much more detailed data and graphs which will allow you to track and adjust your own therapy. Many many members here can assist you in interpreting the data and help you make adjustments as needed. Good luck.

I have installed the ResMed software and inserted the SD card but I have to say I honestly don't understand or know how to read the graphs.

Do I have to take the SD card out ever ytime, or will it wirelessly download to the computer now, not sure how this all works.

Yes, you have to take the SD card out to transfer your data to your computer if you have the original card that comes with the computer. However you can replace it with an SD card that has a built in WIFI transceiver and this, along with some software will mean that you don't have to do that. The supported card is made by Toshiba and is called a "flashair" card. There are some instructions on how to do this at the following thread:
