As a night tech, I find Comp. Profusion to be user friendly. We don't use the Nexus part at my lab.

Still voting for Nihon Kohden. I have only seen the Compumedics once, which people on this thread have rated highly. It looked good, very clean signal, I was just watching at a friend's lab and didn't really get into it. Used Sandman, liked it, Grass, didn't like it, Viyasis, didn't like it at all. I don't know how NK prices out against the other major systems.

I'm still legally a newbie tech, but I like SensorMedics (most of the time!). Their tech support could use a bit of tweaking, especially at 2am during the first year at the lab when I was freaking out and they used terms I had never heard of!

Three years later, I still refer to the manual before I call them, but considering it's the only system I have any experience in, this vote is very biased.

I have heard good and bad on all of the systems, but I would love to try Alice 5 someday. The lab where I had my sleep study used it, so I got to sneak a peek....made me even more curious!

At the FOCUS conference several system vendors were represented but it was usually so crowded I didn't see much....but Boston is looking pretty good this year!

Yes definitely thinking about heading north to Boston, loved the brochure I read, great topic lineup!

But

Boston and "up north" people talk with such funny accents ....I won't be able to understand them... ya' all think I need to bring a translator or can I hire you two at a reasonable rate? :wink:

Last time I was up north was in '79, hubby was doing long haul trucking and I tagged along. We had stops in both Pittsburgh and Baltimore the same week as the last World Series game crowned Pittsburgh the winners.

(Think Respironics will have an after event party like they did in Nashville? I was having a great time....all the fruity type drinks I wanted plus an endless supply of stuffed mushrooms and shrimp!!)

And yes...hubby will be coming too! We never travel alone....he knows my inability to read a roadmap. I can give directions as long as I don't have to learn names of roads or streets....such as:

"Oh sure, I know where that is....go past the bank, turn left at the Dairy Queen, another left at the gas station...."

He will be coming as long as I can keep him out of the hospitals.....we were walking in tall cotton when he made an A+ on his recent heart cath in November (ejection fraction keeps coming up a little at a time too!), then he was admitted for CHF/pneumonia the week of Thanksgiving.

This past weekend, he was out to prove he could do "normal man type activities" again. So he and his brother went deer hunting in their hillbilly condo (a hunting cabin complete with laminate flooring and a queen size bed). His brother became ill during the night and went home. Did hubby come home too so he would not be alone in the woods? NOPE....he was going to HUNT by gosh!

He climbed his tree stand, lost his footing, fell 5 feet onto the back of his head. We spent the weekend at the Trauma Unit in a hospital in Huntington. Luckily he only has two small "stabilized" fractures and has to wear a cervical collar a couple of weeks....proves my theory though...he is HARD HEADED after all!!! 8)

My sister-in-law tells the docs he will never die because she has tried to kill him and can't...lol!
