Search this very forum for "FlashAir," and you'll get your wish.

You will need a wireless SD card. I use the 16GB Toshiba FlashAir and a program called FlashPap that can find a link for the download here:https://sleep.tnet.com/equipment

I bought my card on Ebay for $25 including shipping. They are available from Amazon but the price is usually higher.

There is a lot of good information in the forums but I found it hard to follow. If you have problems ask for help.

Lots of people here use it so we can help with just about any issue you might face.

Most common problems include configuring the card for your network and signal strength (wifi router too far from the FlashAir). The flashair has a stupid small antenna and it is inside your CPAP machine. You will get the best results if your CPAP machine and wifi router are less than 40 feet apart. Yes it might go further but you will have frequent drops. I had a big issue with keeping a connection and having to constantly cycle my card out/in of the machine to get reconnected. My wifi router was only 40 feet away at the time but was next to my TV. It's possible the TV or media equipment was interfering with it. It's now about 20 feet from the CPAP and I no longer have issues.

As AlanE pointed out, and I should have mentioned, the antenna is small and distance and interference can be a problem. My modem is about 30 feet from my FlashAir but also on a different floor, so the signal needs to travel not only that distance but also through a ceiling and a wall. It works fine most of the time but I will experience a timeout about once every 10 to 12 attempts. Sometimes all I need to do is wait a few minutes but I'm obviously at the edge for reliable transmission.

Resmed is able to get my data wirelessly as is Guys Hospital in London. So does that mean I have a wireless SD card?

If so, would I be able to obtain this wireless data to sleepyhead?

Not only a Apnea Infant but also not a Tech Infant. Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks..........

No you do not. Your Airsense 10 has a cellular modem that ResMed and the hospital use to read and even make changes to settings.

There is an APP for a smartphone called MyAir; but it's utility is much less than Sleepyhead.

You can still go with the above postings to use a wifi SD card. Or, just stay with the "sneaker net" approach (remove SD card and insert in computer, then back).

And, FYI, these wifi SD cards were originally developed for photography applications where the camera's SD card would off-load images to perhaps a laptop.
