nearly 3 years on.used every night now.ahi less than 3 and on occasions less than 1. stick with it,dont accept the preset pressures as the optimal settings. i use setting of min 8/max 14 this suits me, good luck and good bye
i will make adjustments and see how this affects the results for the next week.thankyou
thanks for your reply.when i get someone to show me how to add screen shot,will do.i purchadse an air sense 10 while waiting for philips replacement and in the time i used it, the central apnoea was .5 now back to using dreamstation. have the flex a setting at 3. ahi 2 and less most of the time 1 ish and on occasions .
i see screenshots of trends .that need a person to have some instruction to understand what is displayed. i have entered numerical display from oscar for my stats for 1 yr. btw the previous stats from oscar nearly identical. here goes.AHI 1.9 /obstructive index .72/ hypopnoea index .80/ unclassified apnoea index 0.0/clear airway index .39/flow limitation index 1.01/ rera index 2.3. in this display i see immediately any spikes in the treatment. how would these results compare to a person without any apnoea issues? thankyou to anyone who takes time to respond.
has anyone using ds2 used an sd card with oscar,any issues ? thanks
just another note.while the air is passing over a chemical cocktail (foam) there is the possibility of this happening again. lab testing of foams to be used in these devices does not replace real life use. years of use may have different outcomes to short term lab tests. maybe engineers need to find a solution so this air/foam contact can be eliminated. have a look on you tube,there is a video showing the replacement foam,looks like polystyrene packing foam.i do not know to how add a link to the video.
a question,why does the air supply in these machines pass by the noise reducing foam allowing for air contamination? surely the air supply should be contained so that contamination cannot happen. it is only a pump,air in air out.
i will just leave the philips sd card alone,use the cheapy. the provider can access info without sd card.
when i remove the philips sd card to upload into oscar,the settings that i have made are displayed. if the philips sd card is then reinserted into the machine the settings reset to what was set originally, min 5 max 20, functions that can be set to auto return to auto.i have to change everything back to what i want. now when i want to upload to oscar i use a generic sd card,leave philips sd card in a draw,settings don't change. all the machine information is up to date using the generic sd card when displayed using oscar.
