how do I delete data from Sleepyhead? My SDCard that came with machine .....
#1
Question 
I just imported my SD card data into sleepyhead for the first time ( came with my ResMed). I then discovered that the SD CARD must have been given to me with someone else's data still on it.( hospital technician set me up) My sleepyhead profile shows data that is not mine. I just started using the Cpap machine May 13 and its showing data going back into April. How can I remove that from my sleepyhead profile? Any ideas?

you first need to clean out the memory of your machine or it will continue to rewrite the old compliance data to the SD card. On PRS1 machines you do this in the clinician menu, pretty sure Resmed is the same. You will also need to format the card. In Sleepyhead you can selectively remove data.

Open Sleepyhead and go to the Daily data tab. On the calendar at upper left, days with data are highlighted in blue, and days without data are black. Go back to where the data is that you want to delete, and select that day in the calendar, then go to the menu and select Data/Advanced/Purge Current Day. You can delete all data that is not yours, and your data will be preserved, however if you don't clean up the machine memory and data card, it will all be reimported.

If you have more than a few days to purge, go to Data->Advanced->Purge All CPAP Data->Your machine.

I am more suspicious that the MACHINE is used, not the card. The machine should reformat a used card, as in it is from a different machine, when it is first inserted. I think.

Paula, you're right. I missed that the O.P. thought they were using a new machine, and just assumed they knew it was used.

Sleepy, your machine was indeed used by a previous individual. Want a new one? Tell your provider they not only gave you a used machine, but that they are in violation of HIPPA by also providing you with the previous patient's data. That data can be removed as I said by deleting it in the clinical menu and resetting the therapy hours. Someone screwed up.

sleepyandsore,
Someone did screw up by leaving that SD card in the machine, but I have to ask...is this a machine they gave you on a trial basis, or is this a machine you will me using long term?
If it is the latter, you should be upset! Not only did they leave someone else's info in the machine, but makes you wonder if it was cleaned before giving to you??? If you can get into the clinical menu, check the blower hours and user hours, then I would call them and ask for a brand new machine with a data card that doesn't belong to someone else. Sad

wow! thanks for the info. I don't know how to get into the clinical menu. I think the technician /nurse said I was going to get to keep this machine after 3 months if I complied 70% - so I assumed it was new. Perhaps the machine was new but the card was not?

I am SO TIRED. I just took a two hour nap with the cpap and I don't feel rested at all. I changed the ramp from 45 minutes to 10 minutes before I did. I still get the feeling I can't breath while I am sleeping. What could be going on? I feel more exhausted with the machine then without.

The instructions for entering the Clinician menu are here: http://www.apneaboard.com/resmed-airsens...setup-info

You want to change the minimum pressure to 6.0. Also change the minimum ramp pressure to 6.0. You can also use the Erase Data menu to delete the former patient's data. This should have been done before you got the machine. If you want to get a new machine, call your provider and complain tomorrow morning and insist on a new machine. You were give one from a patient that failed compliance, If you take a look at their data, you will probably see poor compliance. In any event, you should not have to accept a used machine for a new price.
