The vibratory snore on oscar. I guess a better question would be, should I change my pressure tonight or leave it alone?

If you are referring to the VS2 events, you can get those just by dragging the hose ribs across the edge of your nightstand. I would recommend that you turn off that parameter. No one that I know really understands its significance.

Yes, typically VS2 flags in OSCAR is suggested to be turned off. It can be from hose vibrations, and other sources. Just another Respironics murky secret ingredients CPAP recipe.

RE: Help with oscar
Good morning all,
Last night was another rough night. was up most of the night and when i did doze off it wasnt for very long.
im still looking for where i turn VS flags off. anyway these graphs are from last night. they look alittle different. maybe because i upped my presure to 10.5.
i dont know. it looks like there is more centrals going on. something is keeping me from deep sleep.

RE: Help with oscar
At the bottom left of your charts you will see a pull-down menu with PB at the top. If you look on there, you will see the VS2 flags, and you can un-check that.

CA events are consistently inconsistent, and here we see a lot of events with periodic breathing and hypopnea. I don't see any change in pressure, and I can't see what is different than the previous night. I think for now continue and we will see where this settles out.

Sounds good. Should I wait on buying a different machine until we know for sure what I need. Or do we already know that the previously mentioned machine is the best choice. The resmed aircurve V10 auto bilevel.

RE: Help with oscar
A ResMed of some flavor will improve therapy and very likely comfort too. If you're only doing fixed pressure, then maybe something like the AutoSet would suffice. It'll be a bit less expensive, but the ResMed VAuto would be overall more capable. Myself, I'd lean towards the VAuto. Let's get input from some others, but that's my take.
