How do i create a detailed report from my data card.

by John N.
(Aberdeen MD)

I am on travel for 2 weeks and haveing dificult time with my current CPAP mask. My therapist wants to see a detailed data report to determine problem. I'd rather not mail chip. Is there a way I download software to read chip and create detailed report so I can fax results to therapist?

• The best help you can get is in person, in front of a Respiratory Therapist. Bring your CPAP mask, machine, power chord, CPAP tubing and the SD card. Show them the problem in person.

• If they recommend a mask, try their sample CPAP mask using your machine blowing at the doctor prescribed pressure. Not the ramp pressure. This is the only “educated guess” way to figure out how you will react to a CPAP mask at the prescribed therapeutic setting.

• If you are not comfortable mailing it, have them down load the card and interpret it when you see them in their office. It will take them about 5 to 10 minutes.

• As of now there is no home edition software that I am aware of. Which is wrong in my opinion.

• If you go to the CPAP forums, somehow or another people are able to download their cards at home. Ask for help there. Find out how. I have never done it myself. If you feel comfortable please let me know also.

I hope this helps a little bit.
