RE: New to board
larrydude,
Which AirSense are you using?  Are you able to download OSCAR and post a screenshot of a night or two?
We can help. Smile

I'll look into it.  I'm afraid I wasn't given much information.

Larry, post a copy of your nightly charts from OSCAR.
You will need an SD card in your machine, The upper door on the left side , any brand 4-32GB not bigger. OSCAR will read the SD card and generate the report. Then we can begin to help and educate you.

Also get a copy of your sleep study, a full copy including all the charts and tables provided. Det a copy of your Prescription. These you need to permanently keep to demonstrate your history to whomever, especially DOT.

RE: New to board
Your story makes the steam come out of my ears. In addition to posting an Oscar chart, could you post a copy of your sleep report (assuming its yours)? Black out the personal information first.

I'm betting you can get a lot more comfortable with PAP therapy, with advice from knowledgeable people here. I've seen it happen many times. If you're under the watchful eye of your DOT, this will be especially important.

Yep agreed, DOT can be so much fun when dealing with them. Says a former truck driver.

Hi Larrydude, these people can and will provide all of the help that you need to get set up and post some Oscar charts. Read the suggested information and the Wiki information as you can find time and you will soon be headed in the right direction.
Welcome to the forum and just ditch the idea of lurking, just dig in with the steps that are being recommended.

RE: New to board
OK. I have misplaced my test results and am having issues with OSCAR software, so bear with me... I am using Airsense 10. I guess my biggest problem is finding enough time during the day to keep being compliant, since quality and quantity of sleep is almost nil with the machine.

RE: New to board
Larry, until you can give us some basic information like settings and results on your machine, there is nothing we can do. What issues are you having with Oscar?
