[Equipment] Astral 150 Ventilator tech question
#1
Question 
Astral 150 Ventilator tech question
Hi All

As my conditions worsens i've been moved to a ResMed Astral Vent 150  for night (face face mask)/day (mouth piece) use plus cont flow O2 5-7LPM

as a software programmer I noticed this thing has an Ethernet jack on the back, any way I can make use of this? i;d love current status and any alarm state if possible
I don't mind hacking/sniffing/tracing packets and throwing the software together the problem I am facing is I do not a link light from the unit or the switch



resmed is VERY tight lipped about this port saying service use only......:p

has any one does anything with this port? to make it link eg speed/duplex/etc and IP settings if any?

If I cant find any real answers for this I am going to break out the USB port on the external modem and capture it, thing is I need real time data for caregivers which I am going to throw up on a wall mounted monitor


Any thoughts sugestions would be useful
and telling me "its for service use only isn't" Smile don't give up that easy!
Its there for a reason and I wanna know why........


Thank you
Jer

I don't know if OSCAR supports Astral Vent 150, download it and check for yourself. If it does not you could contact bonjour or any of the OSCAR team members and together you could add the support to OSCAR, since you're a programmer.

RE: Astral 150 Ventilator tech question
AFAIK Oscar doesn't support the Astral as it's a fairly specialised machine. Crowtor's suggestion is a good one. On the other hand ResScan does support the Astral and is available from our private files and links forum: http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Forum-P...-and-Links

However Jer wants to run a wall-mounted real-time monitor which is not (again AFAIK) supported by the machine. There are two USB ports, one of which will take a USB stick for ResScan data and the other is a mini-usb which allows connection of an external 3G modem to send data to Resmed's cloud applications. The ethernet port is "for service only" according to the clinical guide but that may be the means of connecting real time - if only somebody knows the protocols.
