Oscar Dummy - Help me get started using Oscar

Oscar Dummy - Help me get started using Oscar
I want to start utilizing Oscar to see why I still feel like a walking zombie during the day. I was diagnosed a few months ago with moderate sleep apnea (AHI of 24) and have been using a Resmed 10 to treat it for approx. 5 weeks, but am still super sleepy during the day. I have kept lowering my max pressure until my AHI started to rise. Now at max pressure of 7.3 and last night had an AHI of .8 (not 8, but .8). OK, I am quite stupid when it comes to technology. I bought my machine used, with an SD card already in it. If I shove it all the way in, will it record thru the night? Do I need to first erase the card first? Will it overwrite what is already on the card? When I download Oscar onto my computer, does it have a way to search for files to upload into the program?. A thorough review of how to use the program would be greatly appreciated. Tired of being tired (half the day I stare into space, as I am so tired I feel like I have been anesthetized).

Chris, you need to erase the existing user-data from the machine and from the SD card. To do that you need to access the clinical settings menu in the Airsense 10. We could give you the steps to do this, but instead, go to the CPAP Setup Manuals link at the top of this page and follow the instructions to request a clinical setup manual for your machine. You will need to be able to read the SD card in a computer, so if you already have a SD card slot, just put the existing card in and delete any files and folders. When you put it back in your machine, cleaned of any prior user data, it will properly format and record data. Is your machine an Autoset? You might want to add that to your profile.

If your computer doesn't have a built-in SD card reader, you can buy one to plug into a USB port. They're cheap. Before you download Oscar, take a look at the data installation and migration guide. I didn't, and I wished I had.
