saving data for later import into SleepyHead
#1
I've been using SleepyHead to track data from my rental machine (and it is fantastic Smile thanks JediMark) I got my AirSense 10 AutoSet today and I don't want to loose the detailed data between now and when the next version of SH is released.

If I create a folder on my laptop and copy the data from the SD card will I be able to easily import it from there into SH when the next version is released? How frequently should I copy the SD card data over, daily, weekly? Is this the easiest/best option or is there a better way?

TIA

Crist

G'day Crist

Yes, what you propose will work fine. You can configure SleepyHead to import data from any nominated folder or direct from the SD card. You should download at least weekly if you want to keep the high resolution flow data. For some reason the Resmed machines over-write this data after seven days.

Congrats on getting an S10!

You can also download ResScan so you don't loose any detailed data

You still need to save the data weekly. I believe ResScan saves the data in a different format which isn't the same as the data on the card and can't be read by SleepyHead.

Hi Crist,
I use both ResScan and Sleepyhead, and I prefer Sleepyhead for the easy manipulation and view of the graphs.

I use just such a procedure as you suggested to preserve images of the SD card, and I have successfully downloaded the data to both programs. A few months ago, my Win7 notebook had to go in for hardware service. While it was gone, I used a backup Win7 computer. When my original machine was returned, I had several weeks of data to download to bring both ResScan and SH current. SH was simple - just point to the directories in turn, and do the import. ResScan was a little more trouble - it forced me to copy the SD card images back to a scratch SD card, and import from there, but it worked.

As a Windows user, I can't suggest details of how to structure your data, but in my experience, setting up a structure where the relevant date was in the directory name, and copying the entire SD card to a directory for each day has worked well.

As to the download schedule, currently, I am looking at the data daily. I may back off of that after while, but for now, I look every day. Some have suggested that there is not much value in the detailed data after a short while. I feel that if I decide to review the data for some new issue well after the fact, I want that data to be available. For example, there are some threads discussing Flow Limitations and RERA events, where looking back at old data may be of some value. My S9 Autoset is known to overwrite the detailed data on the SD card after 1 week, so the minimum I will ever download is weekly. If I back off of the daily schedule, I'll probably just go to twice weekly. That way, if I miss a download, data won't be lost.

I'm not sure we know yet if the Airsense 10 Autoset overwrites on the same schedule as the S9 Autoset, but if we don't, I'm sure we will know very soon. Then you can judge what download schedule you wish to use.

Good luck, and all the best on your CPAP journey.

Type of data .............................................. ....................... Sessions stored
Summary data (compliance data)...................................................... 365
Detailed data/High resolution flow and pressure data capacity ..........Limited by usage and SD card storage

The above info from A10 clinical manual, the info is not as clear and concise as the S9 manual info
What "Limited by usage and SD card storage" suppose to mean?

I'd take that to mean it will keep going until the card is full. A worthwhile change if that is indeed what it means!
