RE: OSCAR
It is up to the compliance agency to accept or not.

Some FAA Doctors do accept it for pilots, Ask.

RE: OSCAR [report for DOT & Doctor?]
The DOT examiners the company I work for use want the reports prepared by a third party. They only need a detailed summary showing compliance and treatment details for the last 90 days. They don’t want any type of  graphs or charts. Mine is only one page. As stated above, it would be best to find out well in advance just what your examiner will require.

I call my DME  a week in advance of my exam to make arrangements for them to print the compliance report. My ResMed A10 has a built-in modem so they are able to use ResMed’s AirView online to print the report and I just go in to pick it up on the time and date we agreed upon. The service is free for their clients. They charge $20.00 for non-clients.

Your DreamStation may or may not have a modem installed. If it does, your DME may be able to print you a report without your data card, after your machine has been registered with Respironics. If you have to have the report printed from the data card it only takes about ten minutes for them to do so. If you decide to have a third party print the reports it would be best to call well in advance to find out what they need in order to print them.
