Help With Oscar Data

Help With Oscar Data
Hi! New to the OSCAR software, just realized that my machine had a memory card in it and has been recording data. Anyway I have been using my machine regularly and have been feeling awful in the morning lately and wondering if anything in my data stands out to anyone more familiar with how to read the data. Any insight would be much appreciated! TY in advance!

RE: Help With Oscar Data
Looks like your pressure needs changing, but that's not in my skill set. I'm sure someone will be along soon.
Would you mind looking at your mask or packaging and writing the exact style in your avatar info? And you are likely using a humidifier, yes? You fill a water tank?
The avatar info is helpful because posters see it at a glance wherever you post. It saves a lot of time, and will give you more precise answers. For instance, some users are likely to have a lot of personal experience with your mask. This will almost certainly be helpful to you if you have mask issues (as most everyone does).

I would start by setting your minimum pressure to 7cm and keep your EPR at 3 and see if you feel any better.  After a few days post some more charts.
I am not an expert...just a long time user.

I agree with the recommendation of minimum of 7 with EPR at 3. Below 7 you won't get the full advantage of Epr since the machine won't go below 4.

Also, it would help us if you posted your Oscar charts a little differently. You have the right items on your chart, but we need to see to the very bottom of the Flow Limits. Smile

Post the whole chart, per instrux, and not just the flow limits. Everything has to line up on the chart.
