AirSense 10 "Brick!" Oscar issue
#1
AirSense 10 "Brick!" Oscar issue
Posting this on here with the hopes this helps someone else. I was prescribed an AirSense 10 it apparently does not record a lot of data. when used with Oscar, which btw seems to be an amazing tool, the AirSense 10 will not provide you with AHI along with other data fields, in fact all it provides is usage hours and the set pressure. I'm an airline pilot and have been hauling this thing with me for the last 5 years!! its heavy and extremely bulky a huge pain to carry this thing around. I've ask my doc to prescribe and have ordered the Dreamstation Go which should arrive tomorrow. I'll update this post once I have some data on it and upload it to OSCAR. If there are any other pilots on here, feel free to chime in, is the DreamSation Go a good set up?

My choice would be to take my 'full sized" ResMed. It comes with a nice travel case. That is what I use whenever I travel.

As crew we have limited space and can only bring 1 roller bag and a flight bag. Unfortunately my full size machine takes up 1/3 of the space inside my roller bag. Does anyone know if the Dreamstation Go will work properly with OSCAR?

It does.
I'd ask if there is an exception for a CPAP machine.

My opinion, I don't know if I could trust a travel PAP to do the job of apnea combat as well as regular sized machines. I realize your limited space concern, but as bonjour mentions, maybe see about a medical equipment exemption.
