RE: Requesting Help with OSCAR Analysis
Welcome to the forum

First and foremost is you are tucking your chin at night.  See how the Obstructive events are clustered together? That is the tell tale sigh of this.  The common fix is a soft cervical collar.  see the link in my signature for details of this.  No amount of pressure will overcome this.  

Once this is resolved we can review what is left.

Where are you seeing that the obstructive events are clustered together? What is the name of the graph you're looking at to see this? Thank you!

In the graph below, clusters of obstructive events occur in six major clusters.  I'm sorry but the image resolution is to small for me to read the time stamps, but you can see the pressure rises for each of those clusters. I think 23:15, 00:15, 00:35, 03:20 and 03:40. Your machine reached a maximum pressure of 15.0 which didn't phase the events. As you can see, compared to Resmed the Philips Auto CPAP took too long to reach higher pressure, but since you have many periods of no events, your pressure does not seem to be a problem as much as positional apnea. That said, I think a minimum pressure of 10 is in your future.

Thank you for responding. I am not the OG of this thread, so those are not my graphs and data.

I can post mine here (still trying to figure out how to read them) and if you have any insights, I am all ears! (Also if I shouldn't post my data on someone else's thread, feel free to delete).

RE: Requesting Help with OSCAR Analysis
It is much better for you to start your own thread so it doesn't get confused with the OP.  

edit also look at the organize in my signature.


Clik "View / Reset Charts / Standard" to get a much better set of charts to post.

Can a Mod split this post Please.

Quick question: you suggested going to "view-- reset charts-- standard" and I'm not sure where that is. If you don't mind pointing me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.
