RE: Help analysing OSCAR data
Not bad, but I'd like to see you with a lower AHI.

Post an OSCAR Daily Chart (see the organize link in my signature) This will help us to help you more than anything else and let us see what is going on.
A redacted copy of your sleep studies will also help. A full copy, not just the summaries.

RE: Help analysing OSCAR data
I see 2 changes, Your obstructive events are somewhat clustered, any more and I'd say to use a cervical collar (see my signature) any less and I'd say let's watch it. Clustering indicated chin tucking.
Most of your events are hypopneas, if possible (it isn't) I would have you increase pressure support, so instead increase your min pressure try by 1. Then repost

If you are looking for a machine with more pressure support I would suggest getting a Resmed Aircurve VAuto

RE: Help analysing OSCAR data
ResMed with it's EPR does this up to 3 cmw. EPR is the equivalent of Flex on your machine, but the implementation is different and as such acts as up to 3cmw of Pressure Support.
ResMed AutoSet is the equivalent of your Dreamstation and has this feature.
Any BiLevel / BiPap can go much higher Pressure Support.  I like the ResMed VAuto.

RE: Help analysing OSCAR data
What's the difference between pressure support and increasing the minimum pressure?

RE: Help analysing OSCAR data
Pressure Support is the difference between exhale and inhale pressure. IPAP = EPAP + PS

Min pressure is simply the lowest pressure you machine will use. It is not a difference in pressure.

I have flex already set to 3, are you saying ideally a higher number would be better?
