EEG Recording and OSCAR
#1
EEG Recording and OSCAR
Hi,

Is there a practical way to record your EEG while you are at home? I've seen one product (Dreemer) which apparently can be imported to OSCAR but to my understanding, it doesn't send the raw data. How accurate is it? My main concern is to be able to differentiate centrals that aren't really centrals (which happen when you are semi/fully awake or moving). Does OSCAR compare the sleep state data (awake/rem/nrem) with the data from the CPAP device? It would be useful if it could mark false centrals.

Thanks...

I have a Dreem 2. Here's what the sleep stage data looks like when imported into OSCAR. So yes, you can correlate to sleep stage; SWJ (the "false" centrals), spikes in events during REM, etc.

As for how accurate, it's hard to know for sure, but my general impression is it's reasonably accurate. It correctly reports when I'm awake, for example, even when I only vaguely remember (those that last only, say, a minute).
Caveats: I'm just a patient, with no medical training. And my first experience with xPAP was fairly recent. So I'm somewhere along the path of a steep learning curve.
