s10 vs dreamstation

s10 vs dreamstation
I have 2 RESmed airsense 10's.  One for the road, and one at home.  I work for the railroad and travel for work.  8 days on, 6 off.  I bought the extra machine so It can stay set up at home and not have to hook up my machine as much.  It's been great.

However.  I am required to keep a medical card with DOT, and that requires compliance reports.  I have now realized this is a nightmare with 2 RESmeds.  Is there anyone that has more than one Dreamstation and can review how well they merge data from the 2 or more machines?

I'm sure the Respironics DreamStation also will not merge data between 2 machines. Besides the foam gate is still a great reason to stay with ResMed.

Why don't you use OSCAR and create compliance reports for both your ResMed machines? Present this compilation as your overall compliance.

If both Resmeds are the same model, all you need to do is use separate dedicated SD cards for each machine. You can then use the same profile in OSCAR for reporting. Resmed encodes each SD card with only one CPAP's serial number. This prevents sharing the SD card among various machines.

RE: s10 vs dreamstation
I have read somewhere that the Dreamstation reports merge with multiple machines.  I was just simply hoping someone might be able to confirm this.  UPRR (LHI) will not accept OSCAR or sleepyhead downloads.  They want the official download from resmed or Phillips.  They basically want it from the doctor, even though I get itmyself from myAir.  They are fighting me on the 2 downloads because the avg use is extremely low on both (each is missing several days).

In that case, get ResScan. I have not tried integrating 2 different machines in the same profile, but the worst thing that can happen is it not allow it. You then would provide two different reports.

Follow this link to get the instruction on obtaining a copy. You will want the version 5.9 and NOT version 6.1. That is, unless you have a thing for passwords at every turn.

You mention that you have two ResMed machines but then you also mention Dreamstation. Those are two different brands of machine. Anyway, I had the same problem as you. I had to take both machines, each loaded with its SD card, to the DME's office to get it all sorted out.
