Detecting machine stop/start/restarts?
Detecting machine stop/start/restarts?
Hi there,

I find I often wake up in the night and need to "reset" my machine (hit top button on my ResMed and then hit it again) to make the air pressure reset so I can go back to sleep.

I'm wondering if those events are captured in OSCAR, and if so where should I be looking?

If the time between stopping and restart is more than a minute or two, the machine will create a new session, which will show up in the session list at the bottom of the left Statistics and Settings column. This is useful information when making suggestions, and is included if you use the F12 ket to create your screen shot.

If the time is shorter than a minute or two, you will still gaps in the flow rate chart - as at 00:15 and 00:45 in your posted chart.

ah, that makes sense. Yeah, the restart time would be a matter of seconds, so doesn't create new sessions.
