Do I get it right that your data is made available by the clinic to someone who is supposedly monitoring it...? Interesting. Did you ask the clinic to give your data too? if not, how do you get it (because you said you study it, so you probably have it)?
Are the doctors open to explaining stuff in the reports when you ask? If not how did you learn what it all means?
Haha, sorry for so many questions :P your reply intrigued me, but obviously you don't need answer it all.. :D
Thanks! That is very helpful and comprehensive. So Sleepyhead is the way to go if you want more info. I'm familiar with it, read some other posts about it too. Sadly not all machines are supported if I got it right and there is the "hassle" of installing it, etc.
Why do you think the clinics try to keep the data from the user, shouldn't they be the ones that give it to people?
I'm working my PhD research project on Sleep Apnea. I'm trying to asses how patients are treated and how much information do they get. I wonder if you could help me answer the below questions about data on the machine. From what I've noticed on the forum there is a lot of confusion around how to get the information you need...? Can it be downloaded, from where and how etc.
How do you get the data of your machine?
Why do you need it? Curiosity? Insurance? Do you give it to your doctor? Or use it yourself (it seems bloody complex!)?
And finally is the data you are getting enough?
Thanks heaps for help!
