Anderson5420's OSCAR Data
RE: Anderson5420's OSCAR Data
On the ResMed PAPs, this OSCAR graph of leaks, 0 and upward is leaks above intended/calculated, if I remember correctly. Move up the leak rate where 24 is, that's the ResMed redline. OSCAR has the option to mark that leak graph with the redlined 24 to be clearly indicated. Below the red line equals under 24 and above equals more than 24. I think it's an edit if you right click on leaks graph.

RE: Anderson5420's OSCAR Data
It has been a bit since my last post, mostly because everything had been going along the way it was since the beginning (badly, all centrals per OSCAR).  Thanks to OSCAR data which I had plotted on a spreadsheet for more than two months along with selected screenshots, which I regularly sent to the PA through the patient portal, the PA finally ordered another Titration Study, which was last night, and guess what. Perhaps the Tech was perhaps talking out of school and telling me things that only the PA should after the mysterious doc signs the report, but I learned two things. First, although I have been using nasal pillows, as soon as I fell asleep, my mouth popped wide open, and a lot of the air that should have been going down the airway was going out my mouth. She finally after a couple of masks changes switched me to a Phillips Dreamware full face mask, that problem solved. The biggie, however, is she told me I would be getting a new machine - as soon as she switched the program to ASV, my centrals completely disappeared. The CPAP only pumps air when I breathe in. The ASV shoots a blast of air, and I mean a blast, when it detects I SHOULD be breathing but am not - and that first blast of air was an experience but not difficult to get used to. I fell back asleep and slept great until she woke me up at 6:45 a.m. She sent me home with the Dreamware mask. The only downside was that their coffee machine was broken! I am home now and we have coffee! Follow up with PA is 5-18, and heaven only knows how long it will take Kaiser to approve the new machine and then how long it will take Apria to get it to me, but there is light at the end of the tunnel!
