[Treatment] AHI continues high
#1
AHI continues high
I'm new to Cpap treatment [7 weeks] and Apnea Board. My Phillips DreamMachine is set to: Ipap 15 & Epap 6 PS4 on AutoB. Mask fit is usually 100% but my AHI continues to be in the low teens. I've tried some different pressures but to no avail. I also just figured out how to download my SDcard to the Oscar app. Just can't get my AHI down???

Thanks

RE: AHI continues high
Please do download your data to your file in OSCAR, organize your charts per the instruction, and then post some recent examples of your daily readout.  We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

Take a screenshot of Oscar's screen and save it to your computer disk. Oscar has screenshot operations, so you don't need any other screenshot program. But some can take an area your want. For example only 3 x 3 cm area on screen.

When you have saved the screenshot file then upload it to some picture profider. In good cases it gives you straight BB-codes to be copy+pasted to your message editor in this forum. Save your message and that's it!

I need a little more detailed info. I've never done this before. I have a screen shot of Oscar, but I just can't figure out how to insert the pic.

That all sounds like some kind of a foreign language to me.  Loco

Oscar has a built-in screen-shot routine - maximise your Oscar window (press F11) then press F12 for the image to be taken. The image will be saved in the screenshots folder in your Oscar data directory (eg c:\users\...yourname...\documents\Oscar_data\Screenshots.

If you only need to show a small detail from the screen you can use the Snip program (Windows) to isolate and save a small area. However we normally don't recommend this - for best advice we need to see the entire Daily screen including all the left side-bar (but with calendar and pie chart turned off).

No - we haven't recommended that method for some time. Since PhotoBucket changed its business model and thousands of members' attachments were lost, Apnea Board now hosts your images on our own server. It's much quicker and easier than using a 3rd party provider.
