I think SleepyHead lists which models are compatible.
Pretty much all the CMS overnight recording models except maybe the blue tooth and I can't swear to that.
I don't do the pulse ox thing so I haven't kept up with which models work or not.
I did use the CMS 50 D Plus a couple of times and it worked fine but it seems most people aren't happy with that basic model and want fancier so I really haven't followed those other models.
Ah, I didn't realize there was a listing I will go looking for that. Thank you.

My S9 Autoset failed to write data to the card,
so I have set the gears in motion to get my AS10 Autoset for Her.


It's already working in the code, I just need more data to get it working swell :)

Edit: "working", as in, importing and showing the graphs and pressure settings, but the new fancy stuff (like CSR and RERA) as well as the other settings (Like EPR, humidifier, etc..) need adding in..


Thank you for this! I was just about to ask if SleepyHead was available for my Autoset For Her!

That was three months ago. You will have better luck today.

I once was lost in apnea; but now I'm found--breathing easily all night long.

hi. Thank you for all the SH information. I am going to be downloading the software but I would like to know if the data on my machine will be erased when I download it onto the program. In Ontario we are followed annually by a company in order to be reimbursed by OHIP. Thanks for your help.

Hi yarnknit,

Your not getting your answers here :) , you'll get much better responses in the main forum under the 'Topics' section. There are 100+ machines, we don't know what yours is. May not be data capable. Sleepyhead does not erase data to my knowledge. Registering and filling out your profile will enable us to answer to 'your' equipment questions. OHIP means nothing to most of the USA members here. Don't give up, you'll get answers once you get the hang of where and how to post.

my machine is Philips Respironics REMstar Pro C-Flex+ System One. I have a MAC and IPAD. Is Sleepyhead compatible with a MAC or is there a Respironics program? Thanks.

?? So load the current SH version and provide feedback to the author so he can improve it.

Thanks Pugsy. I feel better now that I understand the equipment and everything better. In today's health care system, they don't have time to explain anything. Probably why there's such a high non compliance rate on sleep disorders.

Pugsy,

It has been a long time since I logged into cpaptalk.com. A friend of mine is in his 2nd week of misery and I am recommending he drop in here and gain from everyone's experiences. I am glad to see you are still active! Your posts and replies were most helpful to me as I started out, as were many others. Other than the occasional mask leak, I am living with my machine very well. Thank you for your diligence!

Don Dodson (aka Oboevet)

I am looking into possibly getting a O2 sensor and looking to see what is compatible. One that I found I thought was interesting which would allow me to use my phone to collect the data. I still don't know if it has an export mode yet, but I'm curious if anyone has looked at it as a possible supported device

Here are two nice ones, Krelvin. One has bluetooth. I use the 50i. It works reliably and the data/graphs import nicely into SH on the same SH graphs time scale.

Nice reply to a post I made 16 months ago.

Just want to thank Pugsy for the tutorials, glossary, everything. Essential information that apparently is available nowhere else at all, certainly not from my doctor. Super grateful!
