5th night numbers on my ASV.
#1
Using Sleepyhead on my machine; some data missing from page 3, but most stats show up. I was not sleeping on my back. I might try it just to see what goes on. Stomach sleeping is difficult, and I miss it a lot. My side (left hip) hurts, and I can't sleep on the right side, due to a head injury. I get vertigo if I lie down that way.

Does Sleepyhead not report on Centrals on my Aircurve 10, or is Clear Airway considered a central? My doctor says I have onset-centrals which cause Hypopnea on falling asleep.

Clear Airway 0.00
Unclassified Apnea 0.00
Obstructive 0.00
Hypopnea 0.26

Now, hopefully the DME will fit my mask so I don't get nose sores.

If you look further into your data, you should see percent patient initiated breaths. You can have many CA events where the machine takes a breath for you and heads off the event. In ASV therapy, that becomes the indicator that an event was prevented.

Some of the features of Sleepyhead don't work for me, as I have an Aircurve 10 ASV. When I was in the lab, on night 1, I had one sleep onset desat of 72%, (sleep onset central.)

The doctor told me I didn't stop breathing, but it was shallow; hypopnea.
