Help analysing OSCAR data

RE: Help analysing OSCAR data
Flex at 3 is as high as you can set. Flex of 3 also gives most patients some issues on treatment, so 2 may be a better choice.

RE: Help analysing OSCAR data
For some reason, Flex does not act/perform like anything close to EPR or Pressure Support therapeutically. By the numbers, it seems logical that it should work up to PS=2/EPR=2. It does not. Perhaps it is because the Flex Response is variable. Both Flex and EPR are considered to be 'comfort' settings. In that regard, they are fairly close with some individuals preferring one over the other.

Pressure Support is the basis for the therapeutic success delivered with BiLevel machines. It is the preferred way to treat hypopneas, flow limitations, RERAs, UARS, and even snoring.
