What to do Replacing an old Dreamstation with a new and equal one?

What to do Replacing an old Dreamstation with a new and equal one?
Hello friends,

In the next weeks I will receive a new Dreamstation, it will replace the same machine of almost five years of use, I want to continue using Oscar and the data of the previous machine without being deleted. if it can be with the same old SD.

What should I do?
"¡Por España!/ y el que quiera defenderla/ honrado muera/ y el traidor que la abandone/ no encuentre quien le perdone/ ni cobijo en Tierra Santa/ ni una cruz en sus despojos / ni la mano de un buen hijo/ para cerrarle los ojos". 

"For Spain! / And whoever wants to defend it / honored die / and the traitor who abandons it / does not find who forgives / does not find shelters in the Holy Land / or a christian cross in its human waste / or the hand of a good son / to close his eyes.

If you plan to retain your old machine as a backup, I would recommend using a new SD card and keep the old one with the current CPAP. Since you are replacing your current machine with the same brand and type, you can still use the same OSCAR profile. Each CPAP registers its serial number to the SD card, and only one serial number per card is allowed. The Summary screen in OSCAR will show a different serial in the history at the bottom, but your sleep data should continue seamlessly.

Yep, I'd go with separate cards for the machines as suggested.

Thank you for your quick response
That's what I'll do, keep every SD on his machine.

What I don't know what to do is not to damage the old profile and that I want to continue using,

How do I proceed after the first night's reading on the new machine when I enter the data into Oscar?
"¡Por España!/ y el que quiera defenderla/ honrado muera/ y el traidor que la abandone/ no encuentre quien le perdone/ ni cobijo en Tierra Santa/ ni una cruz en sus despojos / ni la mano de un buen hijo/ para cerrarle los ojos".

I see two options here. The first is just to add the new data to your existing data, keeping the same profile. The second, is to create a new profile for the new machine and keep each machine's data separate. Your call.
