Introduction

  • This article and associated pages discuss the interpretation of data created by CPAP machines (of all types) and viewed using suitable software. Although the principles are software-independent, for convenience we will base the discussion on OSCAR. However much of what is discussed in these pages will also apply to ResScan, Encore, Prisma TS and other apnea software.

Events – Apnea, Hypopnea etc

Event flag chart and events table

Flow rate graph

Beyond AHI: Apneas and hypopneas in the flow rate graph

Beyond AHI

Snoring

Flow limitations

Machine reaction to events

Pressure

Leaks

Other parameters
