Sleeprider, I hardly ever have Obstructives, but will have hypopneas, and a few clear airways. When my AhI is higher, it's usually because of those two things.
I used to experience a lot more RERAs than I do now, and would wake up quite a bit, but once I limited the top pressure, that settled down. And now I sleep more sound.
Thanks for your expertise....no, you didn't confuse me.
Congratulations on excellent fine tuning of your therapy. I hope you are also enjoying the great night's sleep that one would expect with data like that.
if you can't decide then you don't have enough data.
Of course it has taken me several months of tweaking pressure ranges. Then I would keep a journal of how I felt. Because you can have low AHI numbers and not feel quite right.
That's why it's so important to check what the makeup of your AHI is. In my case, I used to have a lot more RERAs that I do now, which disrupted my sleep, and they are not counted in the AHI.
Fantastic results... congratulations!
OR: These are great results. Looking at your pressure stats in SH left side readout, I see that your max pressure is 11. That is basically the hunt n peck algorithm of the PRS1 machines (raise and decreases pressure by 1.5cm to see if anything gets better). This implies that there isn't much in your waveform that will make the PRS1 raise pressure in response to a real event of any type(FL, VS, H,O).
Consequently, you may want to try APAP with max = min = 9.5cm (essentially CPAP but with FL reporting in PRS1) and evaluate your results. Or you can bump it to 10 just to be on the conservative side.
Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.
