Have read a number of posts which mention this, but could find out much about it's purpose and value. Googled it and found the digests said it let one set wake up time and other things not sounding like it connected with any Apnea machine. Know I'm missing something. Would appreciate explanations and advice.

Try sleepyhead software, rather than sleepy time.

I don't think it's an app. I may be wrong, but I think its software you install on a computer or laptop and you take the SD card from your cpap machine and download the data to the computer/laptop and the software analyzes the data for you. I searched Google play and the sleepytime app I found is one that plays sounds/music to help you fall asleep. I believe they are 2 different things from 2 different companies.

NiceSilverBison1316 is correct. Sleepyhead software I believe is geared toward apnea patients. Idk what kind of machine you have, but I just got my first one yesterday. Resmed Air10 I believe and they have an app you can install on your phone that receives all the data from the machine each morning and gives you a score of how well you slept/did with your machine each night. Probably not as in depth as sleepyhead but useful nonetheless. It's called MyAir. Sorry for the incorrect info at first. Cheers!

That's the same machine I have and yes, they have a website which you join, which has information and receives daily info from your machine. Works really well, but as you say, is not complete. Go to https://www.resmed.com/ You register there and confirm registration via email and make sure your unit connects to the internet and their site. I think I remember it as connecting to your bluetooth on a normal router or the bluetooth on at least one of your computers/devices. I found it very simple, which is why I don't remember the exact details.

From then on you get a daily graphic report on the last night's sleep and CPAP usuage. The categories of info collected are: Usage hours, Mask seal, Events, Mask on/off, myAir score (compilation of the earlier 'scores'. I believe it is aimed at your Compliance Quotien rather than medical info.

BTW: In reading their info blogs, most, if not all, eventually say that to get this information see your Sleep Doctor. Good for hardware info and vocab, but not on medical.

Just google “SleepyHead app”. Works on Windows or Mac but not on a tablet or phone as far as I know.

Thanks for the information. Have completed the setup and been using the system for several days/nights. I am fairly flummoxed by all the acronyms but will work through them. Maybe when I understand what all the strips are supposed to be tracking I'll understand the benefits of this app. However, at this point I feel it's only use is to take the card to my Dr and hope he understands.

Is/are there any particular strips which are primary tell-tails or markers which would either tell me all is good or that a call to the Dr. is in order?

The one thing your doctor will be most interested in is AHI. Don't know if SleepyHead does that but it probably does. If you AHI is below 5 that is generally a good sign.
