The graphs seem a little more vivid and precise than the downloaded Resmed Rescan report.
Are these different software programs? Is there any way to get the Airview Therapy Report?
Hi bob456, welcome to the forum!
I haven't heard how the version of AirView which is used by medical professionals can be obtained, but it (like ResScan also) is intended for use by medical professionals and is not available for sale to CPAP users. These programs can be used to change the therapy settings, and if users were able to do THAT they might hurt themselves, and no company can afford to expose itself to possible liability for users harming themselves.
ResMed AirView is used for remote monitoring and control, over the cellular modem. The modem sends only the settings and statistical summaries of the data, not the actual detailed data which is stored by the machine only on the SD memory card.
ResScan and SleepyHead are more comprehensive than AirView. These read data from the SD card and display the settings and statistical summaries, but also display the detailed data (plots of pressure and Leak and Flow and much more, for every second all night).
The Detailed Data is needed to see when during the night the various events occur, the sequence of events, to clearly see what's really going on and to troubleshoot problems.
In my view, any doctor worth keeping should be using ResScan to view the Detailed Data from ResMed machines. Doctors using AirView to keep informed of patient progress remotely is also good, but often will be insufficient.
