What's important in OSCAR?
#1
What's important in OSCAR?
I downloaded my data in OSCAR.  Which columns give me the best information as to how I am sleeping?  E.g., I wake up multiple times per night so my deep sleep is probably not much.  I get out of bed, maybe 4 times.  How is this reflected - which column?
Also, when I wash my hose, I take off the autostop and humidity and run the machine for an hour or two to dry the hose.  How would I determine which hours I'm sleeping and which I'm drying the hose?  Thanks for your help!

RE: What's important in OSCAR?
you should see that you take the mask off when the pressure chart and flow rate chart in the daily view just stops and there is a big gap in the data if you had smartstop on. And you will probably see a large leak when you're drying the hose, the LL events in the event flags chart.

I'd recommend the oscar guide from the wiki to help understand the charts https://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.ph...OSCAR_Help

But generally the daily view has all the useful charts at the top. 
- event flag shows if the machine found apneas, leaks,...
- flow rate, shows breathing patterns. that's what the machine mostly uses to find apneas. you can see if you stopped breathing etc..
- pressure, useful if you're in apap mode and the machine adjusts the pressure automatically to see what the machine actually did.
- leak rate, is the mask (and therefore therapy) working properly?
- flow limits, was your airway restricted ? 0.5 being 50% restriction as far as i know.
- snore self explanatory, shouldn't be snoring much if the therapy is working.

and if you want to post data on the forum please follow https://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.ph...ganization which all the important data.
