    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    What does CPAP software do?
    CPAP software allows for the downloading of information from certain CPAP machines. Information on breathing, pressure levels delivered, apneas, etc. is available to help determine the effectiveness of CPAP therapy. Software is not required to operate a CPAP machine. CPAP software provides more data than the information obtained through the on-screen display or SmartCode. Also, the software allows you and your doctor to view any night of recorded data by revealing results on an hour by hour basis.

    Some CPAP manufacturers maintain a proprietary software package that is only compatible with their machines.

    Here is a list of each manufacturer and the name of its related full data software available:
    What data capable machines are available?

    AutoPAP ("Autotitrating CPAP" or "APAP") machines which record full data:

    BiLevel ("BiPAP") machines which record full data:

    What types of Software are available?
    There are two types of software available: compliance software and advanced software.

    Compliance software provides data such as patient hours, total machine operating hours, pressure setting, and pressure relief information. Advance software includes compliance data, as well as more detailed data such as AHI (Apnea/Hypopnea Index), leakage, average pressure, and a graphical representation of data.

    Compliance software is available with some standard CPAP machines. Advanced software is available with most top of the line CPAP machines, APAP machines, and BiLevel machines.
    How do I interpret my data?
    Software data can be interpreted by your physician or clinician. There are also many websites and search engines available to help you research the sleep apnea related terms which will provide more knowledge in managing your own CPAP therapy. Visit, our free sleep apnea forum, which is a great resource for CPAP users who want to understand their condition and take control of their health.
