I'm Craig...recently diagnosed with OSA and receiving my AirSense 11 in the next few days.  I'm looking forward to learning and sharing.

I tried to share my study results but the PDF wouldn't post.

cramseur  Welcome

You will find some very knowledgeable and helpful users here that can guide you on your journey.

Your machine may not come with and SD card, so you may want to pick one up beforehand.  Any card 32GB or less should work fine.  Keep it in your xPAP while you sleep, then you can import the data from the card into OSCAR and see the results.

While you are waiting for your machine, there is a wealth of information here in the forums and also in the Wiki pages.

As for posting the copy of your sleep study, have a look at the link in my signature for attaching images or files.  Don't forget to redact any personal info (DOB, SS#, etc.).

Happy paping.....

To be ready download Oscar from the top of the site (free).  Get a sd card 2gb to 32 gb and it must be in the machine while you sleep. (Cheapest sd card cannot be larger than 32gb. 

I have a link in my signature on charts that give the charts and order they need to be. Also that link gives info on Oscar.
