What data is available to my sleep doctor
#1
What data is available to my sleep doctor
I asked my sleep doctor to write prescription for a bi-level machine. He said you can't just change from cpap to bi-level , instead it has to be calibrated. Wants me to send him sleep data. Resmed said data comes from my DME, so I called and had them send last 3 months data to my Doctor. I also had them send me a copy of the data. The data basically was little more than comes on MyAir report. Is that all the data sleep doctors use to evaluate cpap settings, or do they have access to more information like Oscar?

RE: What data is available to my sleep doctor
They have software that is like oscar that downloads to the Dr. but it costs and most all regular Dr. would not have access to it. They would get compliance info only. Hours used and AHI numbers. If it is a "sleep" Dr. he may have paid for the service.

RE: What data is available to my sleep doctor
Your sleep Dr should have access to AirView, which gets the data directly from your machine.
If they don't have access then they may be using ResScan software and you would need to provide your SD card so they could get the data from it.

If they are not using either, then it may be time to look for a new sleep Dr.

If you have a laptop you could show them the data from OSCAR, or even install the ResScan software and let them see that.
