RE: OSCAR - Understanding the Data (Help)
Hi planetf1,
You have several therapy threads started... going forward, please keep your therapy questions to one thread.
This helps those who are responding to see previous history as to what has been suggested and tried without looking through other threads.

You seem to have a high Rera reading which may be disrupting your sleep. The only thing you can do with a Respironics machine is raise the minimum pressure a bit to see if that helps.

Since your 95% pressure hovers around 13, the only thing I can suggest is to raise your minimum pressure a little at a time and monitor a couple days.

What is your Flex set at? I would set it to 1 or 2.
