Flow Rate question
Flow Rate question
I see in other threads that, after looking at the Oscar charts from others, recommend reducing the flow rate.  What is a considered a good flow rate?  Is there a relation between flow rate and AHI?

RE: Flow Rate question

This chart describes the flow rate basics of OSCAR.  Flow rates can, but not necessarily affect AHI.  They are usually the smallest disturbances (happen in an idividual breath), followed by hypopneas (10 seconds or more), then obstructive apneas (10 seconds or more).  RERAS can occur also.  

If you want to download OSCAR and upload a few charts, we can look at your flow rates.
