OSCAR vs Rescan

OSCAR vs Rescan
Hi,

I have OSCAR and Rescan can be found apparently. Is there a reason to have both? Does OSCAR miss any function found on Rescan? If not, I don't see a reason to double the time required for record keeping.

Thanks...

RE: OSCAR vs Rescan
If anything, OSCAR has more features than ResScan, looks much nicer and is much easier to use. IMHO OSCAR is the way to go.

Using a 13" MacBook Air (2017), MacOS Catalina (10.15.4), OSCAR v1.1.0
In a VM: Win10 1909 (18363.778)

RE: OSCAR vs Rescan
That's totally up to you.  Some folk just like to use both for comparison.

ResScan doesn't give as much detail as OSCAR, but some Sleep doctors wont even look at anything but ResScan or Encore should you have a Respironics machine.  Also, some are required to submit a report from ResScan for DOT requirements.

But there is no reason to use both.  ResScan can be found in the Private Files and Links Forum.
