My 90 days will be over in the next couple of days. What does that mean to me?
I know insurance will continue to cover my cpap.
Will the DME continue to monitor my cpap using the attached cell phone.?
Will they want the phone back. I'm tempted to disconnect the phone and see if they call me about it.
I would also like to lower the settings to 4 - 5 and see how many events are recorded. Kinda like a home sleep study?
My events are below 1 most of the time. I would feel like the machine is really doing something if the number jumps higher when I lowered the pressure to the point where it detected but didn't eliminate..
I haven't noticed a huge difference after 3months of use.
Also, please remember, if you're not wowed by improvements, they can sneak up on you over time. My OSA created heart issues took about 9-10yrs of CPAP usage to improve, but like a lightswitch, all of a sudden I stopped having the issues. OSA may have had many years to work on your body, so some changes may take many years to improve.
By all means, if you have and understand how to use the software, there is nothing to keep you from testing out small changes, just don't change things too often, and be willing to test for a few weeks at a time. Not just a night here, a night there...
