Back to Basic OSCAR Organisation
This page explains in detail the OSCAR Overview page.

The Overview page gives a view of the main treatment parameters over a period of time. This is useful for spotting trends (eg AHI is getting progressively worse) which are not always apparent in the [Daily page]. It can be set to show a time span from one week to one year to "everything".

Select the Overview page from the menu View | Overview, The Overview tab, the Overview icon in the right sidebar, or by pressing <F6>.

The Overview page shows the charts as a histogram (bar graph) where every bar represents one day of data. Select which chart you want included by using the 'Chart selector pop-up menu.
Select which dates you want to include by clicking on the Date range selector. The date ranges span from one week to one year. In addition, you can select "Everything" or else specify a range by selecting "Custom".

Chart interpretation

AHI chart

This chart shows the AHI each day, with different colours depicting different types of events (ie hypopnea, obstructive apnea, central apnea, unclassified apnea).

If you place your mouse cursor over the bar for a given day, a small "balloon" will pop up giving the date and the numerical breakdown of the event types.

Usage chart

The Usage chart shows how many hours per day your machine was used. The bars are colour-coded as follows: Red: Hours less than required for compliance. This is normally 4 hours per night but can be adjusted in File | Preferences | CPAP. Blue: Hours in excess of compliance, with full data. Grey: Hours more than compliance, but only summary data. This might be seen if you left the SD card out of the machine. On older machines such as the Resmed S9 series, a grey day can occur if the card hasn't been downloaded for over a week and the detailed data is over-written.

Session times chart

Gives a graphical representation of the time when the machine was turned on then off. If you sleep all night long the bar will be solid. If you have one or more breaks the bar will likewise have breaks in it.
