Problem with ResScan
I have been using a APAP for a few years now and it is working great for me. I recently downloaded a copy of ResScan so I could view my data. The problem arose when I realized I could view my data anytime I want. I now have a compulsive disorder where I have to download it every morning to see if anything has changed. It is an awesome program but I hate it.

RE: Problem with ResScan
That's a common obsession when first discovering the software and all of its glorious features but that normally loses its allure in time. Then you will be able to get along by merely looking at the S9 reading for AHI and your own assessment of how you feel.

How you feel is a highly weighted factor in this therapy and so long as the AHI is reasonably low, it's best to not fret over daily variations.

I once heard about a kid who got a new tach installed on his dash and paid so much attention to it that he ran into a parked car. Big Grin

As I see it, this is a three-stage disease.

(1) It starts with a fear of missing a clinically significant event that should be communicated to your physician.
(2) It proceeds to the fear of corrupting continuous data input to miss a trend.
(3) And, then it becomes habitualized and you start to treat yourself as a research project. (Nothing wrong with that as long as you do not go OCD -- believing you must perform the ritual to prevent adverse consequences.)

Until one day your machine crashes, you lose everything, and you realize you really didn't need all that historical data and even if you presented it to your doctor, they would not look at it because you are not a research study.

It is all a matter of how you feel, function, and perform. As long as the AHI is under 5 and you feel fine, all is good.

When I was supporting a medical research study, my mentor noted my fascination with data and explained to me that you do not treat the machine, you treat the patient. He then demonstrated PEA -- Pulseless Electrical Activity that could produce a great-looking EKG waveform, but the heart was not effectively pumping blood.

That being said, periodic vigilance is a good idea. I noticed a run of Cheyne-Stokes Respiration, spoke to my doctor. A BNP blood test revealed I was retaining fluid and I was given a diuretic. Now feeling better and the vigilance paid off.

Good luck.
