Getting new CPAP machine and want to retain data from old CPAPs in OSCAR and ResScan
#1
Getting new CPAP machine and want to retain data from old CPAPs in OSCAR and ResScan
I just about to get a new ResMed Airsense 10 Autoset CPAP to replace my existing one (same model with problems).
  • When I import the new data from the SD card of the new CPAP into both ResScan and OSCAR will I maintain my existing data?
  • Can I run reports on all my data (new and old CPAPs)?
  • Can I run reports on just the data linked to a specific CPAP?
Thanks

Peter

I changed from a Dreamstation to a ResMed. I did not lose any of the old data on OSCAR AND I have almost 6 years. I ca look and print all data. I have no experience with the other program.

  • When I import the new data from the SD card of the new CPAP into both ResScan and OSCAR will I maintain my existing data?  I know OSCAR will.  I would guess that ResScan will but don't know for sure.
  • Can I run reports on all my data (new and old CPAPs)?  Yes with OSCAR.  Don't know about ResScan.
  • Can I run reports on just the data linked to a specific CPAP?  In OSCAR, not directly, no.  You could create two new profiles and import data from one machine into one profile and from the other machine into the other profile.  They would then be completely independent.
The current version of OSCAR is 1.2.0.  We recommend upgrading from any earlier version.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have any thought of using the old machine as a backup, you must use a new SD card for the new machine. Each machine will write an identification file on the card, and it always uses the same name, so only one machine can use each SD card.

Thanks very much for the updates and I am looking forward to getting my new machine and adding a new profile.  If I don't use ResScan any more I am fine as OSCAR is much easier to use and more helpful.

Thanks everyone.

GuyScharf I did create a new OSCAR profile but realized that if I import into my existing profile I can still select custom dates in the "Overview" tab to select reports to compare results for each CPAP. In ResScan you can import data from multiple CPAPs and see all the data.
