Help interpreting results.. haven’t been able to figure out OSCAR yet
Help interpreting results.. haven’t been able to figure out OSCAR yet
Hi everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I have been searching through the forums trying to figure everything out, but I’m overwhelmed.. 

last night for the first time, I slept with the ResMed VPAP S (I believe it’s the S8, there is no turn dial).. the mask I used is the Philips Resperonics Amara View minimal contact full face cushion. 

I felt like I slept pretty well - much better than with the CPAP at the sleep clinic where I had my studies done..

Here are my settings and results from the machine:

Leak: 0.20L/s
VT: 220-960
Resp rate: 13-29
MV: 5.5-12.5
Press: 9.0
AHI: 8.3
AI: 0.0
% SPONT T: 100%
% SPONT C: 76%

IPAP: 9.0cm
EPAP: 6.0cm
Rise time: 500ms
Ti Max: 4.0s
Ti Min: 1.0s
Smartstart: OFF
Leak alert: ON
Trigger: V HIGH
Cycle: Med
Tube length: 2m
Max Ramp 45min
Start EPAP: 4.0
Ramp: OFF

If anyone has the time to walk me through what all of the results mean, and give me any advice on my settings, I would be extremely appreciative! I apologize if I’ve left out a bunch of important information, but this is all I have.

On that note, can I get my report from my sleep studies? How would I go about getting that from my doctor? 

Thank you in advance!!!
