Edit - just saw this is in the wrong forum - Admin, can it be moved or should I delete/repost?
Does anyone have experience with required PAP reports for FAA?
The wording on the requirement states "A copy of the cumulative annual PAP device report which shows actual time used (rather than a report typically generated for insurance providers which only shows if use is greater or less than 4 hours). Target goal should show use for at least 75% of sleep periods and an average minimum of 6 hours use per sleep period."
What report would be most responsive from SleepyHead software?
I haven't been fit to fly since before I started CPAP. So, I'm not certain.
First, I think ResScan should be used as Sleepyhead has disclaimers that may render it unaccptable to the FAA med examiner.
ResScan can create a 1 year report with total hours, average hours used, median hours used.
Will your aeromedical examiner even accept a report that's self generated? They may require a report signed by an MD.
INFORMATION ON APNEA BOARD FORUMS OR ON APNEABOARD.COM SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS MEDICAL ADVICE. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF A PHYSICIAN BEFORE SEEKING TREATMENT FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SLEEP APNEA. INFORMATION POSTED ON THE APNEA BOARD WEB SITE AND FORUMS ARE PERSONAL OPINION ONLY AND NOT NECESSARILY A STATEMENT OF FACT.
The medical clinic where I am a nurse does FAA physicals.
we have a card reader for SD cards and 2 web sites that we can use
do download the data. We print a one month compliance report for
We electronically upload the physical to the FAA, however unlike the DOT where the doctor determines fitness to drive, we must mail
hard copies of the compliance reports to the regional office for them
to review and determine if this is a problem.
The bad thing is this can take from 3-6 weeks. check with your flight surgeon and see if they can download your report in the office
