Hi John
I've been kinda hibernating with a bit of a downturn for me ... and I cannot get the email to send despite trying several times ... so trying it this way, so sorry

Kath has directed me to you about oxi meters and windows 7

I have a borrowed oxi m and my netbook running windows 7 and it  does not have a disc drive so I downloaded as per the manual from the website ...

and of course I cannot get it to get data

could you talk me from scratch please?

kindest regards Jacks

Hi John,

It's nice to have you as a friend on this site. I'll email you when I feel better. I have suddenly developed a rotten cold etc and having a mask on when you want / need to sneeze and cough is absolutely wonderful!!? (as you probably know!). This is probably the first day I've taken off work for a year, I feel so terrible. Kath gave me your email address as well. Mine is rorokemp@live.com  Stay well. Rosemary

"Hi Richard.  You may have seen it on their main website but they discontinued it a year or more ago, along with a few others.  Are you struggling with your existing mask?"

Bob Young replied to Mags's discussion Daytime Tiredness on CPAP
"Hi Kath, I think, looking at the graphs that I have a very low flow rate and then an OA event and then the machine sends out one or more pulses. This is almost invariably when I wake. So it could be the OA event waking me (or waking causing the OA),…"
