Missing Info in summary table

Missing Info in summary table
I finished my trial on the Phillips machine and bought a Resmed one.  As you can see from the pics, I got less information from the Resmed machine.  Does it pass less data?  Have I somehow unticked a setting?  Do I need to change something on my machine? etc

What you have is what I have also. One of the missing things is flow limits, it is a graph but not listed. There are 2 places to show what is recorded. The left bottom of the graphs usually show Event Flags checked. Click there and make sure everything has a check mark, do the same thing on the left. You got them all checked you got it all.

The Resmed machines do not record either Vibratory Snore events, nor does it record Flow Limitation as a countable event, rather it is graphed as a variable value.
A major difference between the two brands is that the Resmed machines record the pressure and flow data at 25 times per second, whereas the PR machines record only 5 times a second (if I recall correctly).

RE: Missing Info in summary table
Besides the points noted (PRS and ResMed report different data), OSCAR only shows a line after an event of that type has occurred. For example, your ResMed report does not show RERA because a RERA has not yet been seen while you were using that machine. After the machine first reports a RERA, you will see it thereafter. That also applies to Periodic Breathing, which the ResMed machine reports as Cheynes Stokes Respiration, and Clear Airway which ResMed calls Central Apnea.
The current version of OSCAR is 1.2.0.  We recommend upgrading from any earlier version.

RE: Missing Info in summary table
Take a look at your detail graphs, and note the flow limit graph and how pressure directly responds to flow limits. Also, Flow Limitation is summarized in in the summary data rather than as an event. This is actually much more useful information. As far as VS and VS2 on the Philps, I never had much use for those event metrics, and the summary data and graphs are more useful.
