Oscar: Weird spikes in flow rate and other feedback readings

Oscar: Weird spikes in flow rate and other feedback readings
I am posting these screen shots as I do not know if this is a software or machine fault, I suspect machine. 
If you notice the Min Resp Rate is almost exactly the same for both nights at -6537 

The wave forms are intact during the spikes in Flow Rate. And mask pressure spikes

Have you tried Purging that day and then reimporting it?

That does look like a data error of some sort. The question is: is the error in the machine, the SD card, or OSCAR's import from the SD card.

Do you have ResScan? It would be interesting to see what ResScan shows for that time. If it is the same as OSCAR, that eliminates OSCAR as the source of the problem.

Yes I have opened in ResScan, unfortunately it only allows me to view the most recent file in detailed mode. I may have to delete one or two days from my sd card and import. I will give this a few days with the new SD card and get back to you with my findings. 
Thanks

After over a week with new SD card those little spikes have not returned, it must have been a corrupted card
