Why I hate MyAir more than the heat of 1000 suns!

But, but, but, but you did a great job of doing the most important thing, MEETING COMPLIANCE.
(Sarcastic switch off)
I never think of compliance. When one gets tweaked to something approaching optimum compliance will be there. And COMFORT is part of being there.

The happy faces always start me humming "dooooo duht duht doo-doo doo-da-doo-da-doo-da-doo. don't worry. be happy!"

The gold star emails make me hear my dad's voice "pin a rose on your nose!"

Or sometimes I hear a long-ago coworker "Well aren't we a fancy garbage can!"

(I suppose I should follow the don't worry be happy advice, as opposed to the muttered obscenities I usually manage.)

Eh... muttered obscenities (or even better, yelled ones) actively increase pain tolerance so I'm gonna swear like the foul-mouthed person I am. ? Big Grin

I hate MyAir with a passion. I hate that I can routinely get 95% despite an AHI of 30, 40, 50 something. But hey, I met my compliance rules, and that's all that matters, right?


See my comparison of Viatom/Wellue and CMS50F oximeters here.

MyAir is totally focused on "put the mask on and don't take it off for the next 7 hours"

It doesn't matter if you weren't asleep, leaking like crazy, AHI over 5 -- that still gives you happy faces. But have it on for 6:50, or two minor interruptions, and ***bzzzzzzzzttttttt*** therapy failure.

Can I join the chorus and and say I too do NOT like the mobile or web based myAir. Stupid happy faces tell me nothing. Plus I have to wait at least an hour before 'last nights' stats show up on the mobile app or the web based app. I like to look at last nights stats when I wake up, not wait and wait for the sync to happen. And the web based myAir has even less stats then the mobile app but at least you can 'go back' in time with the web app unlike the mobile app.

And I'll never make 100% per their lame scoring ... I need to get up at least 3 times per night to go to the bathroom.

I can't run ResScan. Does it depend on reading the data from the SD card?

Thank goodness for OSCAR.

I'm going to chime in and also say how thankful I am for finding this forum and OSCAR. While I am no where near a "pro" at reading my OSCAR data, those stupid smiley faces from MY Air after a crappy nights sleep make me want to punch them

As others have said, MyAir is a feel good app, designed to help you stay on track. I look at my numbers and depending on what I see decide if I need to transfer data into OSCAR and take a good look. Usually I get "good" numbers and get dinged for mask removal or time less than 7 hours (have a couple of nights a week where I don't get 7 hours of sleep due to early getups. I don't even look at the unit display when I get up. My wife does as she is struggling to make 4 hours some nights as she has chronic pain issues.

Couldn’t agree more! I can’t stand the MyAir app and those stupid virtual gold stars in my email. I like grabbing quick stats off the Sleep Report on the screen and every week I import everything into OSCAR.

What astounds me is the number of people out there who think reaching 100% each day is the end all of their world. I can only SMH since it provides a false sense of success and security. To me that could also be dangerous.

I really disagree about MyAir being a feel-good app. I think that it's a gaslighting app, which is designed to hide any failures of our ResMed machines to treat our sleep problems. The perfect sleep medicine patient is one who doesn't need any attention, shuts up and does what they are told, and is a steady and lucrative income stream for DMEs, sleep clinics, equipment manufacturers, and insurance companies, all of whom do very little for that money.

The worst part is my doctors only look at the data from ResMed...
AHI, usage, and leak

I would bring my laptop loaded with all OSCAR and data to my doctor. I would then tell him to download OSCAR and make arrangements for me to send him the data for review. There is NOTHING worse than a doctor who does not take his position seriously.
