Oscar Data Help
Hi,

Can someone please help me understand my data?  I have no clue what any of this means and whether I need any adjustments.

Appreciate any insight.

Thanks,

Welcome to Apnea Board.

We'd have a lot more info on the Daily OSCAR tab. This has the graphs and event flags. We'd then have the data needed to offer therapy suggestions.

RE: Oscar Data Help
Results are excellent. You are using an AutoSet in Cpap mode. Some minor leaks over the last month, but nothing major.

Your AHI has been consistently low over the last year, and I see no reason for changes.

What we really need to see is a screenshot of the daily page as outlined in this link.

4 of 4.

Thanks again everyone.  Sometimes I feel that I don't have much guidance with sleep apnea.  Do most people's primary care doctor's oversee this?

Based of the graphs above, it looks like you have found your "sweet spot" on settings. With your AHI being this low the question is, How do you feel? Also, don't expect it to be a constant 0.0 for the AHI.

I have had cpap therapy for 30 years.  The only thing the Dr. has done has been to ask me how I feel and check my compliance usage.  He has NEVER suggested any changes.  All of that was done here in the last year.

RE: Oscar Data Help
You are getting the same ignored treatment most get when a sleep doctor is in charge of your PAP therapy. It seems that this apnea treatment doctor path for a career is very easy. Order a sleep study and later a titration, barely skim over the data and pronounce You need CPAP. I have put a lot of time into your therapy, so we'll start with a very good setting for you. 4-20 should be very good...So says Dr. Dolittle of the medical team Dolittle and Duck.

These doctors may have medical degrees, but they don't seem to have much common sense or personal knowledge of how to run a PAP machine or how to set these up personally per patient. Dolittle and Quack mostly script the same CPAP with the default settings and think it's magically going to optimize itself for everyone. Nope, that's not reality.

Do not set your PAP on defaults as mentioned above, it was an example of what these expert docs give as cookie cutter PAP therapy.

On to your charts, which we do look at here on AB. Not bad by the numbers, but as mentioned, don't expect great almost zero numbers all the time. If you can stay below 5 which is medically treated then this is acceptable, better is about 3 or less, or wherever you feel better consistently. High comfort and consistent repeatable therapy that makes you feel good are the best overall result.

Appreciate all the insight here. Before yesterday, I had zero idea what kind of data I had. Happy to see and hear that my current treatment is effective as shown in the data. Thanks again.
