Re: Anyone Using TAP PAP Nose Pillows & Mouthpiece

Hi AcedDublB, I like the TAP PAP and have been using it for a couple years. I can't speak to high pressure, but the design is good for adjusting the fit just right, so I don't get leaks (unless I open my mouth). For me the TAP PAP works well. My pressure needs have gone down. Yes, it is a good sale ...

Re: Airsense 10 Autopap vs. Dreamstation Autopap

Hi Jenk2k, Your AHI numbers are very good, congrats!, and if you see that RERA events are not bad then a difference in machine algorithms isn't something I'd guess as an issue (I suspect if RERAs or flow restrictions were the culprit, then the "Airsense for Her" algorithm might have enough...

Re: Help! PRS1 error folder on your machine? SOLVED

Hi JDS74,

The list you posted is for one of the pre-PRS1 machines, as it references "smartcards". Still useful for folks who have machines from a decade ago.

Re: SleepyHead needs your PR System One data, please

Hi Palerider, I'm glad to be of help. I still use my 450, so I've sent that data -- most recent is just straight CPAP, but I have an older upload I sent too which has some AutoIQ (temporary Auto mode) on it. I'll also upload my 460 data tonight. Sorry I didn't see your note when it was posted, glad ...

Re: best type of mask for side sleeper

Hi bpathakis, I hope you don't mind my late response. I tried a few masks, and the one which I'm most confident using when side sleeping is the TAP PAP. I like it because it does not have straps, so snuggling my cheeks into the pillow does not disrupt the good seal (and no strap marks in the morning...

Re: Using 2 Machines with Sleepyhead

Hi Macpage, I have two PRS1 machines, and load them both into the same user in SleepyHead. The only time SleepyHead can't handle that is when I use two machines in the same day (for instance if I nap on one machine and then sleep at night with the other). SleepyHead lists the results of only one mac...

Re: Sleepyhead, how can I tell when I fell asleep?

Hi lilasmom, At first I zoomed in and looked at the waveforms. Awake, I tend to have more rounded "sine wave" types of waveforms, asleep looks different. But that takes time. Then I figured out which graphs might show sleep at a glance. For me, exhale time is the biggest clue -- when that ...

Re: Help me prepare for Doctor

Thanks Julie, Den and Pugsy for your responses. Den, I've got a full face mask "just in case" but my attempt at sleeping with it turned out even worse for leaks. I don't know if I could get it to work any better with my facial hair. Julie, I've been curious about the neck collar. But it is...

Help me prepare for Doctor

Hi all, I'd like your help to prepare for a doctor visit. This may be the first time EVER that I get to talk to a sleep doctor. Yeah, one I never met "signed off" on my in-lab sleep report several years ago but this time I think I've got a referral which will get me face to face with one (...

Re: Can AHI be 0?

Hi Wong, Yes, if you don't have any Apneas or Hypopneas during your time on the machine, the reading will be zero. I've had nights like that. If it becomes a pattern several days in a row, you are either doing great (congrats!!) or your machine is "stuck" (I've heard this about S9 machines...

Re: Sleepyhead can't find data on my SD card

Dear Ellen1159, To check and see if it is the SD card you could use a spare SD card and put it in the machine, waiting for the display to clear after it loads data from the machine's internal memory. Then see if SleepyHead will read data off that spare card. Does the machine screen show averages for...

Re: Oh No- Machine not writing to SD card?

Creating a new profile worked as this move picked up the missing date. Thanks again Pugsy. The new profile actually pulled in all the data back to the beginning of using the machine. The problem is it doesn't import all the Pulse/Ox data and graphs. I would have to tediously go back for months, a d...

Re: long-term use of TapPap on teeth

Dear surf_rower, My dentist has not been concerned about the TAP PAP and I have not noticed any issues during my regular checkups. I've been using the TAP PAP for a year and a half at least, I don't think it has been out for two years yet. I'd brought it in during one of my check-ups so that the den...

Re: Sleepyhead: multiple machine results

I'm still confused... Can you get multiple machine results to appear on the same "report" and if so, what is the procedure ? I use two machines. As said by others I import them to the same user profile, which works fine. The Overview reports don't care, and combine the data from all machi...
