Can OSCAR download data wirelessly
#1
Can OSCAR download data wirelessly
I have a ResMed AirSense 10 Auto Set. OSCAR is installed on my PC. Data has been put into OSCAR via the SD card from the CPAP machine. So far, so good.

Here are the questions. 
  • Can OSCAR can download the data wirelessly?
  • If not capable now, will OSCAR be modified to allow wireless downloads?
I seek to eliminate the need for the tedious daily transfers with the SD card. I know that the machine has a wireless transmission capability, because it sends the data to the myAir program on PC. 


Thanks for your expertise. Thanks

Craig

RE: Can OSCAR download data wirelessly
The myAir data is transferred over a cellular telephone link and there does not appear to be any way for Oscar to initiate or receive that transmission. I am hoping that the Airsense 11 is Bluetooth enabled and it is possible to grab the data. There is always hope -- since more and more devices interact with Smartphones.

BTW: It appears that only summary data is transferred, so you would still need the SD card to grab the detailed data.

RE: Can OSCAR download data wirelessly
Your CPAP uses a cellular phone network to transmit data back to Resmed. There is no other recipient possible. Resmed uses the data in research and distributes detailed data to subscribers of AirView (suppliers and doctors), and a very limited data is sent to patient's AirView account. A future version of Resmed machines may incorporate Bluetooth, but there is not anything like that now or announced. At this time, there is no wireless data by either Philips or Resmed that could be used by Oscar, so no plans exist to create that capability. The Resmed MyAir data and Philips Dreammapper data streams contain far less information and are supported by apps from the respective manufacturers.

The SD card contains very dense data that Oscar can report and chart, but you have to use a SD card. I look at mine about once per month. If it's worth seeing, you will just have to deal with the tedious daily transfer, or do it less frequently as you see fit.
