Question regarding SD card usage for Airsense 11 Autoset

Post by Velderes » Tue Jun 04, 2024 12:24 pm

Hello all!

I just started my APAP journey a little under 2 weeks ago and I have a question about the SD Card usage for my device (Airsense 11 AutoSet)

I am using Myair, but It only gives shallow information, so I am looking to start using OSCAR to get better insight into my therapy.

I noticed that the Airsense 11 machine I received did not have an SD card installed, so I have some questions below before I purchase and insert an SD card:

1. The Airsense 11 is connected via the internet. Where is this data stored and can I access those stored cloud data?
2, If I were to go to see my doctor after using the Airsense 11 device without an SD card, how would he have access to my sleep data? Would he only have access to the minimal sleep data available on MyAir?
3. Can I view my detailed sleep data on OSCAR or any other detailed sleep data viewing software without the usage of an SD card (perhaps on Resmed website)? Or can detailed sleep data only be viewed with an SD card?
4. What happens when I start using an SD card? Can I still access MyAir sleep data online? Will my doctor have access to all my sleep data online?
5. Will using the SD cause an issue with the current form of sleep data transfer/storage? Does putting the SD card into the machine stop it from uploading sleep data to the cloud? Or will the machine store the sleep data on the SD card as well as the cloud?
6. How long does the SD Card store the sleep data before overwriting? Do I need to regularly back up my SD card data? If so, can I just drag and drop a copy onto my computer?

Any help would be greatly appreciated all! :)

1. You can not get access to the cloud data from your machine. Some of it can be seen by members of the medical community, but it is not available to the users.

2. There is limited data stored in the machines memory. This is similar to the information you see using MyAir.

3. You can only view the detailed data by using an SD card.

4. Using an SD card will not affect the cloud data that MyAir uses, or what your doctor can see. In fact, the SD card will give your doctor more detailed data If and when he reviews the data on the card.

5. Your data will still be transferred to the cloud just as it is now. It will store the data on the card as well as in the cloud. The data on the card has much more detail than the cloud data.

6. This depends on the size of the card. The smallest card will store at least two or three years of data. Backing up the data on the card is up to you. OSCAR stores a copy of the data on your computer, but I am not sure of the format. Being slightly OCD, I have backed up all of our data. I purchased two 64 gig SD cards, and copy the data from the machine to them once a month or so.

"Most" sleep doctors only look at compliance data. They don't have to time to look into the details. But you do using OSCAR or SleepHQ.com. SleepHQ is easier to use and you can post the link to your reports here for help. It's easier for the members to use it to help you.

Being reasonably good with technology, I personally use only OSCAR.
