Re: New User Confusion - Update

I am now approaching 60 days into my APAP journey. AHI is averaging below 5, with a high percentage of Centrals-- up to 80% every night. OSA seems totally controlled. Still trying to find the right mask. I am seeing large leaks on the Oscar charts for a new nasal mask that I am using. I am not feeli...

Re: Dream Station 2 and Oscar Update

Any update from the Oscar team on their progress with Dream Station 2 integration? Thanks From what I've read on another board, it isn't looking good. Apparently Phillips Respironics has chosen to encrypt the data so it can only be read by specific, targeted devices. So, now it isn't only a matter ...

Re: New User Confusion

Thanks Babydinosnoreless and Pugsy, I am starting to understand the concept. I am sure that when I have access to Oscar for DreamStation 2 (hopefully soon), this will make even more sense. Could this also be the case with what my Dream Station 2 is flagging as "Clear Airway Apneas?" Although my lab ...

Re: New User Confusion

I have a question for all, as my confusion continues due to newness at this game. I have just tested the ResMed AirSense 10 Auto Set for a few nights, and am currently working with the Respironics DreamStation 2 (with a data card, but no Oscar integration). In the meantime, why am I seeing fluctuati...

Re: ResMed Needs to Weigh In

Well, their senior execs obviously decided that they needed to "weigh-in." See their website which now has a heading of "Philips Recall."

Maybe they read my post. :lol:

ResMed did weigh in. Go to their website. They have a statement.
Saw it, thanks. I mentioned it as well in my 2nd post.

Re: Sticky: Phillips Respironics recent recall notice discussion thread

ResMed has made a statement: https://www.resmed.com/en-us/other-manufacturer-recall-2021/ "On Monday, June 14, 2021, a separate manufacturer issued a U.S. recall and rest-of-world field safety notice for certain CPAP and ventilator devices. ResMed devices are not subject to this recall and are safe ...

Re: ResMed Needs to Weigh In

This is a supplement to my previous post. Looks as if they have already weighed in. See this: https://www.resmed.com/en-us/other-manufacturer-recall-2021/ ResMed stated, "Yes, all ResMed devices are safe to use and are not subject to the other manufacturer’s June 2021 recall. Patient safety is ResMe...

ResMed Needs to Weigh In

Not only should ResMed make an affirmative statement about the safety of their foam in their various machines, but here's another issue. Are the Resmed AirTouch F20 Masks (using memory foam) safe? If they do not step up, there will be conjecture and false rumors. The issue is too big now, given the ...

Re: Sticky: Phillips Respironics recent recall notice discussion thread

Since there is now conjecture (albeit without any basis in fact) about the foam used in ResMed devices, I wonder why the ResMed people don't issue an affirmative statement about the safety of their foam. Now, foam in CPAP's/APAP's in general can be viewed as having a potential risk, and people will ...

Re: New User Confusion

Pugsy and anyone who cares to respond -- Here3 is the data from my lab sleep study this week. It shows the following: 304 minutes of total sleep time with total recording time of 458 minutes. Sleep latency was 31 minutes. Sleep efficiency was 66% REM latency was 315 minutes; N1 was 5.7% of total sle...
