Confusion about Drs and DMEs using “MyAir”….when questioned about how they get data, my guys say that “AirView” is what they use, not “MyAir”
You're right, of course... I'd forgotten the name of the clinician version. Dearly love to have a bootleg of *that*, or the clinician/sleep tech handbook that Nick(Jason?) showed pages from so temptingly.
As I understand it MyAir is a Bluetooth driven app, while “AirView” is driven by access to the cellular modem in the users device.
I wish! This cellphone modem stuff is barbaric... wifi is the new standard, why not just use it? Super-duper encryption available for your snore-plots.
The MyAir phone app connects to the ResMed server via WWW wifi (or cell) to get info... there is no direct connection between the phone and the unit. The unit must phone in to ResMed... remember the dulcet tones of 56K dial-up? That's what's going on I think... tempted to tap into the TX/RX lines and see. Hack!
I do find bluetooth stuff in the menu of the later firmwares... that's probably for that giant clunky pulse/ox that one of those comedians on YT showed... he was not a fan, and it was way expen$ive. Really ready for an open-source machine that can BT into any pulse/ox... perhaps the carcasses of the old AS10's are it.
My doctor used AirView to give me a two-page report from my C2C SD card. That data never showed up in MyAir... it's been silent ever since the 3G modems were turned off here in USA. If I can get MyAir working on my older machine then my doc will have AirView data, which he asked for. Otherwise, as I said, I have no use for it... I do like hacking, and the modem experiment is ongoing, as are other experiments that get you kicked off ApneaBoard.
