Threshold indices / "normal" values
#1
Threshold indices / "normal" values
Good day to all,

As most newbies, I have been lurking for the past month and I am learning a lot from my readings. Thank you for being so generous with your time, knowledge and desire to help.

For the life of me, I can't find what the normal and threshold indices should be. I am looking at my statistics and wonder if they are within range or not. I understand that each individual is different but it would be nice to have some information like "Such statistic, for such a type of person (woman, man, age, etc.) can vary from XX to YY value".

I have been searching with different key words without success, but I am reasonably sure something like this exists or should exist.

Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

Thanks again !

Welcome to the Forum. 

Post a screenshot of your charts arranged as follows and someone will help you out.

Flow rate
Pressure (not mask pressure)
Leak rate
Flow limitations

Any questions just ask. I know there is a link to a thread that explains how to setup OSCAR so they can help you better I just don't know it. Someone else who is more knowledgable than I will be along shortly

As per Osiris' request.

I am questioning if the Flow Limitation and the RERA are within range, as well as Tidal Volume. In these two particular days, numbers are different and I am trying to find what would influence these results. Maybe I am also overlooking something obvious...

Hope you are all having a fine day, can't wait to read your thoughts.

RE: Threshold indices / "normal" values
The accuracy of those flags (RERA and FL) is questionable, you'd have to look at the flow rate up close to check. Tidal volume seems fine to me.
Nothing I post is medical advice and should not be taken as such, always consult a medical professional for guidance.
