Please help me to understand OSCAR data

RE: Please help me to understand OSCAR data
Yes use the mentioned combination of keys on Mac. Maybe this helps clarify the Zoom request. It is not a zoom to make everything look larger, in this case zoom is to look at smaller chunks of time. I think there was a way to zoom with up/down arrow keys to change zoom levels with left/right arrows moving the zoomed in chunk of time. That may work on a Mac as well as Windows. Others: feel free to correct or add in. I've done zero Mac time.

RE: Please help me to understand OSCAR data
Oscar with f12 create a small png file while screenshot with Apple create big file. It might be use different key with your Mac, not sure but From the Net " For example, on the MacBook Pro laptop, the F12 key's primary function is to increase the audio volume. If the key is pressed while the Fn key is held down, the key will register as F12, and trigger any software functions that are configured to use this key."

To understand better, your Mac doesn't display this in your OSCAR menus?

Oh my gosh Crimson, it worked. What I was doing was, saving the screenshot to my desktop then trying to download the charts from there. I didn't think to  try VIEW on the OSCAR PAGE it's self
Thank you so much!
Is this chart large enough to read whatever Sleeprider wants?

This is an incredible post and thread. DotLove I'm so grateful you started it.

I'm new to OSCAR therapy with my new apap machine. You've helped me so much and so have the posters here who provide help.

I'm just a cpap user like you. I don't give medical advice. I hope to learn from you, and share my experiences with you. 
Seek the advice of a physician before seeking treatment for medical conditions including sleep apnea. Sleep-well

RE: Please help me to understand OSCAR data
When we say zoom, the normal chart height is fine, we mean we want to see, for example, a 2-minute PERIOD of data and that should typically include the flow rate chart so it appears similar to the EKG you occasionally get at your doctor,  SleepRider is one of those here that reads the details of each breath and can interpret what is happening literally on a breath by breath basis.  so if you had a view that started at 02:21:20 it should end at 01:23:20.  The top left corner of the flow rate chart will also have a duration.

This one is 4 minutes, but it has notes on it interpreting what is happening that is not evident without viewing on a breath by breath basis.   This is actually someone chin tucking in an area the normal view does not indicate that it is happening. (The clusters of obstructive events are the tell that says chin tucking is likely taking place.)

RE: Please help me to understand OSCAR data
The Flow Limits looked better than they did compared to the last chart I saw. Likely cause for the AHI increase is elevated CA which are called Clear Apnea in OSCAR but are really Central Apnea. Central Apnea are long pauses in our breathing. AHI is a number that means Apnea Hypopnea Index; it's just a measuring stick to tell us how many apnea events took place. Lower than 5 AHI typically means the CPAP therapy is more effective. But we do not change or suggest changing settings just because AHI is higher comparing one day to another. Note that almost every time you use the CPAP and view it in OSCAR, it will look different. Our goal is to get you to the place where CPAP therapy feels comfortable and gives a reasonable AHI number. We like to see trends, stringing multiple days together.

Also of note, the CA amount went up. These CA events do this normally, they are up one night and drop down the next. These CA are never consistent in going up or down. They do however get less over time. And CA are expected as you are new to CPAP.

After this last sleep session, did you feel about the same, or was it worse or better? It is probably better to rely on how you felt after CPAP therapy than the numbers, even though numbers are helpful to us. They tell us how to measure or grade your therapy.

Hope this made sense, and hopefully you are doing OK. If anything about the CPAP or what we post does not make sense, you can post questions. Not all your posts need OSCAR charts either, they can just be questions or comments.

I would not change settings just from this chart. Keep using the CPAP as it is now. Best wishes for great therapy. Have a great weekend.
