RE: David Clark - Therapy Thread
Regarding CA, there's not enough to justify your attention. At about 7/8 of a CA per hour average, with you stating you didn't believe you were asleep during these, this means note the info and move on to things that are worthy of your attention.

I feel good. Honestly, I can't tell much difference if the numbers are one or two or six or nine. It was just about the numbers and I know we're not supposed to chase those. I guess I will just leave well enough alone.

You have done a good job with disciplined increases of EPAP pressure to resolve obstructive issues. During events your machine increased EPAP in the 9s, and if you're comfortable where you are at now, you can try my minimum pressure (13/9) and see if anything changes. To be honest with OAI at 0.85 and H events at 0.32, this looks really good. Increased pressure may have diminished returns, so focus on comfort.

I just uploaded my OSCAR datafile to my Google Drive. It appears that it went fine and the dated folders are there but I don't seem to be able to open them and see the OSCAR data. 
I am not sure why I can't. If one of you wants to take a look and see if you can see that data I would appreciate it and if you can't maybe you have an idea of what I did wrong.

The files are there but you need Oscar to import and see the data.  These are the raw machine files created by the machine.  Oscar transforms the machine files into the user readable graphs.

OSCAR is not able to open a cloud URL to access data. It only reads files that can be accessed from a locally mounted disk drive. That's Linux-speak for a drive that starts with a drive letter for Windows.

I've seen another thread on here where one of the users uploaded their data to Google Drive and the people they shared the link with could look at it the same as if it was their own. I'm trying to do that but I obviously don't know how it was done.

RE: Bipap Titration advice needed.
After uploading it to your Google Drive, you have to enable sharing and then select the option for anyone accessing the file.
