This site has been created to provide a safe place to upload and store your C/A/Bi PAP data or any other data and if you have a Respironics card you will soon be able to perform charting and stats.
This card format is not proprietary to Respironics.
The SmartCard is normally installed in a slot on the REMStar xPAP device and is removed for downloading. Respironics states that the card can store 6 - 9 months of compliance data and 7-9 days of detailed sleep data. I have seen reports that users have seen 10 -12 days of detailed data. When the card is filled, the oldest data is lost as new data is stored.

Yes too bad that sourceforge project fizzled out!

Has anyone with a card reader been able to copy the data off? And if so can you fashion a guess as to the storage format of the data? (is it encrypted/etc..)
