DOT physical

DOT physical
I am a newbie here and hi to all. I have a Philips Respironics REMstar Pro system one and I have to have a printout to give to the doctor for my DOT physical. Is there any way that I can do this at my house on my computer? Thank you in advance for any help

RE: DOT physical
There are two possible solutions. First, you can download the free OSCAR (Open Source CPAP Analysis Reporter) software. This software offers a very detailed view of your therapy and usage. Most physicians and DOT will accept the report. The Statistics will report the number of days with greater than 4 hours the machine has been used for the past year, 6-months, 30 days, week and day, as well as data on your AHI, pressures and much more. When printing a report for your physical be sure you are looking at the Statistics section, and then print the report.

A second solution is more complicated, and that is to download the Philips EncoreBasic 2.4.8 program. As a member you can access the Private Files area where this and other programs are available. http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Forum-P...-and-Links EncoreBasic and EncorePro are official Philips Respironics software, and will produce a Philips compliance report. EncoreBasis has the same report output as EncorePro, which is used for managing larger patient groups and is a much larger program with a SQL database. Go for Basic.

While you are in to see the doctor, ask about a prescription renewal for a new Auto CPAP. Your machine is getting pretty old and an new Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset or Philips Dreamstation CPAP Auto would be an appropriate replacement.
