[Treatment] Need help interpreting OSCAR data
#1
Need help interpreting OSCAR data
Attached is my OSCAR data from last night. I'm new to the CPAP scene so I'm not sure how to read the graphs. Should I be adjusting the pressure range? It's 5-20 right now. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Need help interpreting OSCAR data
Yes, I would adjust the minimum pressure to 7cm and cap the maximum pressure at 15cm.

Also, you currently have EPR set to 1 Ramp only. Turn off the ramp as it's not needed with low pressures. Set EPR at 1 full time.

See how you feel with those settings and repost in a day or two. Sometimes additional adjustments will need to be made.

One more thing, when you take a Screenshot, use the Standard View (Not advanced).
We only need to see the first five graphs. Thanks!
