Introduction

This article is part of the CPAP_Data_Interpretation series.

The discussion has been based on using the OSCAR software. See OSCAR Help.

Flow Limitations

OSCAR Flow Limitation

DeVilbiss machines do NOT record FL data; Fisher & Paykel Icons do record FL data Resmed graphs flow limitations on a scale of 0 to 1 Philips flags flow limitations as events.

OSCAR Flow Limitation Example (Resmed)

In OSCAR, flow limitation is usually seen as a flattened inspiratory peak in the Flow Rate chart instead of the normal rounded wave-form. The following images show a moderate to severe flow limitation, and the same patient using EPR to achieve a normal inspiratory flow.
