Introduction
Introduction
The ResScan™ patient management system consists of the ResScan software, ResScan Data Card,
ResLink™, and ResScan Serial and USB Adapters. This data collection system is devised to capture data
from the therapy device, in order to monitor and optimize patient therapy. The system provides remote
access to patient data, and two-way communication between the clinician and the patient’s therapy
device (compatible devices only).
Data is collected on a data card (SmartMedia™ Card, ResScan Data Card, Secure Digital (SD) Card) or a
ResMed USB stick that is inserted into a data collection device (the ResLink or therapy device). Clinicians
can then download the data from the data card, ResMed USB stick, or directly from the therapy device,
onto their computer to be viewed in ResScan.
The ResScan CD contains the ResScan software, card reader drivers, and a wide range of documentation
in PDF format. All other components of the ResScan patient management system can be obtained from
your ResMed distributor.
The scope of this manual relates to the ResScan software only.
This manual contains special terms and icons to draw your attention to specific and important
information.

Download data onto the ResMed USB stick
from only one device at a time. Ensure that all
data is removed from the USB stick before
downloading data from a device. This is the
preferred option.
ResScan can only download data from one
device at a time. If the USB stick contains
data from more than one device, ResScan
downloads data from the first device on the
USB stick (sorted by serial number).
Alternatively, after downloading data from the
first device, open the USB stick in Windows
Explorer and delete the data that has been
downloaded. Repeat the process for each
device.
