I hate to break this to you, but the S9 Autoset is famous for getting stuck on zero.

The cure is to disconnect the power cord for a few minutes, then plug it back in. This reboots the software and it should function normally again.

The good news is that you did have one night of zero AHI. It triggered the bug in the software, but at least you have one night you can crow about. Smile

I like the retired_guy's humor. Wouldn't we all like to be cured, but as we know it would be a mess without the machine. Maybe you could use it to blow your hair back for some action photos.

Yes... that's how I knew it was wrong. I could see apneas in the flow data.

justMongo,

There's a clue for the OP, if he magnifies a bit in SleepyHead and uses the right arrow key to scroll through the night he will either see the events in the flow data or nothing.

If in doubt (e.g., he's new at SleepyHead flow), he can look back at previous nights where the events are marked and make sure he knows the scale of magnification he needs and how to recognize an event.

Sweet Dreams,

We all have "events". They are just not necessarily the same. Some events are humorous.

RE: Zero 2 days in a row -- Am I cured?
Last month I had to have a home sleep test done and went over Saturday and sunday , I got my results back wed 3rd april, ( today ), this showed no episodes of apnoaes, which to me is a good thing, however the reason I had this test done was cos I have had 5 admissions into hospital since I had major surgery January last year to remove my large bowel , over the time I was in hospital on each separate dates I would wear my cpap machine, unfortunately I would be woken up by the nurses to do the usual observations, each time they would tell me to take some deep breathes as my oxygen levels had dropped to between 90 and 91%... I discussed this with the cardio respiratory department hence the need for the home test,plus it was mentioned I might have to have a in depth sleep test done in hospital to find out what is causing this , and whether there is another underlying cause to this.Have a new appointment to see my consultant at the end of may ....

Last night I scored one Hypop. So and AHI of 0.12. Not too bad. I'm not sure it was an accurate reading however, as last night I also gave my nifty new Quattro Air FFM another shot at making me a happy camper. Complete with a "Pad-A-Cheek" liner. It actually performed well. My leak scores were very low, except for a couple of occasions when the mask got a little goofy. But in order to get a good seal (something I could never do without the liner) I did have to crank down on the straps pretty heavily. But for openers, it was a fine experience. I'll be trying it again tonight.

By tomorrow night I'll probably be able to go back to my P10 and chinstrap. We'll see.

In the meantime my machine was unplugged for a number of hours today so if it was having a goofy problem it should be resolved now.

Maybe you are 'cured' Mr. Guy... Two nights 0.0, third night 0.12 -- very impressive!

For reasons unknown, last night was perfect...according to Sleepyhead.

Is this real or am I being tricked?
