Hi, I have a ResMed Series 10 autostart CPAP machine. I have put a SIMM into it to record the sleeping activity. Since I bought and own the machine so my question is how / where can I get the PC software that can read the data and produce reports that I can give to the doctor? Thanks, Greg

If you live in the US, you can look at data online:

https://www.resmed.com/us/en/consumer/airsolutions/personalized-support/myair.html?utm_source=Vanity_URL-myAir&utm_medium=Multi&utm_campaign=myAir

If memory serves, you have to sign up but once signed up, the machine sends the data to ResMed and they put in on this website. If you want to look at data from your card, you will have to get a reader or your PC/Laptop will need to have the ability to read the card. You will need to download some software like 3rd party free software called SLEEPYHEAD. I don't use it as the ResMed info is enough for me. Good luck.

Hi, Thank you for the reply. I should have mentioned that I live in a valley by a river which negates the machine from using the 4G network. As such I have to use the SD card. I used to mail it into Apria Healthcare but since I bought my own machine I have to come up with an alternate way to read and report the data. I just did a quite search for SleepyHead and it looks very promising. Thank you, Greg

Prior to going on Medicare, I was with Apria as they were in my private insurance network. They didn't win the bid for Medicare in my area so I had to find another company that I am pretty satisfied with. Since you bought your own machine, compliance isn't an issue; guess it would be the supplies that require a compliance check. I would call the insurance company and talk with them about how to prove compliance. Good luck with the sleepyhead!
