OSCAR Testing Release planned in August 2019
#1
OSCAR Testing Release planned in August 2019
DreamStation BiPAP autoSV (900X)
DreamStation BiPAP S/T and AVAPS ventilators (1030X and 1130X) are now supported. The settings aren't yet displayed correctly, but therapy events and graphs should now display properly
Improve oximeter import for CM550D+

If these devices are yours, and you would like to join our Beta team and test, Please PM me (Bonjour) and request to be a Beta Tester.


Looking at about 2 weeks  This will let you protect your current data by placing all data in a "testing" folder separate from the production release version.
You will be able to run both versions and tell us what is broken and what is fixed.

A lot has been beyond what you can see, OSCAR is more maintainable.  Advanced PR devices are now working. Graphics engines now load correctly (you shouldn't need a script to correct graphic engine choice).

NOTE:  THIS VERSION HAS NOT BEEN FORMALLY TESTED!!!!!  if this makes you uncomfortable don't use it.


I recommend this version to our testers but not for public release (so I would not put it on the public OSCAR download page). We should also make it available to people with special problems such as the recent problem with screen capture on the Mac. We should recommend that people use either a copy of their OSCAR_Data directory or use a new directory entirely as this version may update some tables and caches that are not backwards compatible. And it is a test version and all of the caveats about "it may damage your data" apply. On first use, OSCAR may need to update some caches. This can take a long time if you have many years of data. If OSCAR seems to hang, check Windows Task Manager (or equivalent on other platforms) and see if OSCAR is still using CPU and doing I/O activity. If it is, just wait it out until it gets done. (An issue on our list is to add progress bars for these situations.) For any new commits, we should be aggressive about updating the build number with each commit so that we, as well as users, can easily distinguish builds. The commit id is visible at any time by selecting Help/System Information.

Forty-nine separate fixes and new features - that is a very solid record of achievement by the Oscar team. They are working quietly in the background to bring us a greatly improved tool to help manage our apnea. Sincere gratitude to them all!

Amen to that! I don’t know where I’d be without this software. Probably off CPAP....

I am still using SH--have been slow to download OSCAR.  I think I will now wait for the updated version--is this reasonable for a computer dummy?

RE: OSCAR Testing Release planned in August 2019
I'm using OSCAR but I see a difficiency in Oximeter support and file import capability.

The software seems to be mising one really prevailant Oximeter with open API. This being the Berrymed BM2000B wrist pulse oximeter (picture attached).

I use this oximeter and have been using it with the Android software to record oximetry during sleep and export via sharing CSV files. I have also used this with Sleep As Android to record sleep phases and sleep activity via Bluetooth and it works very well.

This oximeter is very capable and should immediately be considered for support in OSCAR.
