  SleepyHead and non-readable card.
User Avatar Forum: Main Apnea Board Forum
Posted by: SleepDane - 1 hour ago - Replies (1)

I took the card from my ResMed S9 and with it locked I read the data on the card with the help of
SleepyHead software.
Even though the card was locked = No write, when putting the card back, the S9 can't read it ?????

Anyone know why???
Best regards from Denmark

my trial machine was ICON primo or whatever and now I bought the 
Airsense for her. 
My AHI is under 1. Like 0.2-0.5 and on the icon it sometimes hit 2. 
Not a big diff. But I do prefer this sexy beast machine. 
Just a public service announcement haha

I need to download sleepyhead still... 
and I realized I need way closer to 7hr sleep a nite

  One Year Anniversary and Perplexed
User Avatar Forum: Main Apnea Board Forum
Posted by: Spy Car - Yesterday, 04:36 PM - Replies (6)

I'm a few days past my one year anniversary using an APAP machine (ResMed AutoSence 10). I have not missed a day.

I've taken advice from the forum and used by own instincts to adjust pressures (and track with Sleepyhead), but where my numbers were OK, they have worsened lately (perhaps in part due to better sleep?).

From the beginning, I've had a mix of Central apneas and Obstructive (typically around 40% Centrals), but the past couple days have been over 50% Centrals with AHIs of 8.2 and 5.8. Typically I've been at half that AHI-wise. I've had recent nights as high as 12.5 and 14.5, but numbers are all over the place.

Current pressure is 7.2-10.8 with EPR of 3. In the past when I've cut the EPR I've slept more poorly, had worse numbers, and felt worse. Same overall when raising pressures, although generally over most of the year I've done better than currently.

I'm scheduled to borrow a bilevel AirCurve from my sleep clinic for 5 nights starting nine days from now as a trial.

I'm confused about the efficacy of bilevels. Can they help with Centrals? The Centrals seem to make me feel brain-fogged.

I'm perplexed. As recent numbers are bad, do I leave settings alone in case bilevel helps and "failing" helps justify new machine?

Not sure what to do.

  Is SDHC suitable for REMSTAR System One DS56?
User Avatar Forum: Main Apnea Board Forum

Dear all,
The machine (REMstar DS560) I brought was equipped with Lexar SD card. Is it possible to buy a 16G SDHC card for it? 
If yes, which brand's SDHC is comptiable for REMstar?

  Masks and jaw surgery
User Avatar Forum: Main Apnea Board Forum
Posted by: HalfAsleep - Yesterday, 09:38 AM - Replies (3)

I've had jaw surgery, both in the joints and at the mandible. I will be getting CPAP.

I'm trying to narrow down mask choices to minimize pressure on my face, especially my jaws. I don't want the jaws crammed shut, either. I want the face and jaws as relaxed as possible.

In looking at masks, I'm concerned that they will put pressure right where the joint is. Does headgear keep pressure off your face? Do horizontal chin straps travel right along the jaw line?

The couple of options that look like they might be a good starting point to try first are the Amara view and the P10. From pictures, they look like they'd avoid being right over the joint, and give me a chance to experiment with just nose breathing versus mouth breathing.

  Painful Nose Bridge With FFM
User Avatar Forum: Main Apnea Board Forum
Posted by: Hojo - Yesterday, 06:05 AM - Replies (3)

I have had the Resmed Mirrage Quattro Full Face Mask (going on a week now) and with the 'cushion' going around the mask feels padded, right above the nose bridge area it isn't as 'cushy' and I wake up with a very painful area on the bridge of my nose.  I have used a bandaid and mole skin (not at the same time) in attempt to provide some cushion to no avail.  Are all FFM less padded at the bride of the nose?

  Philips-Respironics Series 60 REMstar SE REF 220P - Is this a cpap with auto
User Avatar Forum: Main Apnea Board Forum
Posted by: mybookroom - Yesterday, 12:55 AM - Replies (4)

Hi, my dreamstation is not working right and I have dragged out  my old old old machine.  I forget how to use it.  It's a Philips-Respironics Series 60 REMstar SE with a reference number on the bottom of 220P.  Is this a straight CPAP or does it have a range like my dreamstation.  (I'm afriad I know the answer - this is a dumb cpap with no ability to really adjust right?  sigh - I need to figure out how to buy a new machine quick then).  Anyway if you can help me figure out what machine I have and what it does I would really appreciate it.  And if anyone knows who fixes dreamstations I need mine fixed. I do not have insurance coverage anymore.

  What happens in a titration sleep study?
User Avatar Forum: Main Apnea Board Forum
Posted by: HalfAsleep - 08-20-2017, 10:49 PM - Replies (8)

I've already had the sleep study from hell. Is the titration study more hellish? Will I need 3 days of sleep recovery? Will I be at risk of gagging, choking, or GERDing from the experimentation while they get it figured out? Who does the figuring out? Do they put wires all over you again? How much sleep am I likely to get if they keep fiddling with the machines?

  Where's the leak???
User Avatar Forum: Main Apnea Board Forum
Posted by: Jeffo1 - 08-20-2017, 10:45 PM - Replies (3)


I seem to be having some strange Leak readings and I'm not experiencing any significant mask leaks since I've adjusted the mask very tight.  Do you think that there is a problem with my Bi Pap machine?

Also, why isn't Sleepy Head using my full night's data?  When does a day end and a new day begin?  It still wouldn't explain why there's only one hour of data reported.  Any thoughts??
