Does time sessions show actual sleep.
Does time sessions show actual sleep.
I have noticed when I look at my time sessons on Oscar it dosnt always have each section labeled with the time. I have very fragmented sleep and everytime I get up for any reason I turn off my cpap. In the morning when I look at the data some sessions will have labels for how long the session was other times they are blank. I have noticed a pattern when Im laying there awake with insomnia it dosnt label that section when I know I was asleep it tends to be labeled. Sometimes though it seems I was asleep but it dosnt label so im confused. And its not a space issue either because ive seen it squeeze one hour and 20 minutes into a session segment before but not a 2 hour one?? Does anybody know if it records good sleep and the shallow stuff where you seem to be awake it dosnt? thanks.

RE: Does time sessions show actual sleep.
CPAP machines do not know whether you are asleep or awake. They just record your breathing.

Are you referring to the session time bar at the bottom left of the Daily page? Whether an elapsed time is shown in each segment depends on whether the time, when converted to a text string for display, will fit in the bar segment for that session.
