ResMed Oximeter
I have a ResMed VPAP Auto and recently purchased the ResMed Oximeter and Accessory Kit. I have clipped it to the back of the machine as instructed and wore the probe on my finger all night. The red light was on. But, when I download the data of my SD Card into the ResLink software, no oximetry data comes up. What to do? Any help is appreciated. [/font]

Hi ppatel, welcome to the forum!

I suppose you mean ResScan software.

In ResScan 5.1, on the Detailed Graphs screen, in the upper right is a small icon which, if your mouse hovers over it will say something like "Show/Hide Graph Information Panel". Click on it and at top of the data selection panel select the tab which lists what graphs will be visible on the Detailed Data screen, and put check marks in the boxes next to the oximeter data, so this data will be plotted along with the other detailed data (the plots for pressure, leak, etc.).

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

ppatel - wondering, how are you liking your VPAP Auto?

Is it comfortable to wear and use?

Thank you

I really like it, much more comfortable than the regular CPAP that I used to use (ResMed S9 AutoSet). I strongly beleive that a bilevel machine is far superior to a standard CPAP especially if you are a heavier guy and use higher pressures. I was always resistant to the concept of a bipap, bacause the ones that I have seen (in hospitals where I work) were so large and used horrible masks. I did not realize that you could use the smae masks as CPAP masks. And, the ResMed VPAP is quieter!!
