Air flow limitation
#11
RE: Air flow limitation
it shows in the illustration above and in my resscan profiles for my resmed airsense 10 autoset and my resmed aircurve 10 asv. I didn't see either one in options/detailed graphs but maybe it has to be turned on somehow.

OP's interest is in flow limitations though which they can already see.

RE: Air flow limitation
So an OA is marked if flow is limited by 80% or more? So potentially you could still have air flowing and not totally obstructed during this time, bu the machine marks it as an OA anyway?

RE: Air flow limitation
You might get 20% but don't forget that means your not getting a full exchange of O2 for CO2 and that ain't good.

True. Which also means not full oxygen exchange either. Which is bad as well. But unfortunately my current sleep doctor doesn't think transient oxygen dips to 80-85% are a big deal since my AHI has only peaked around AHI 8 so far. So I'm taking matters in my own hand and increasing pressure a little tonight. And also scheduled a procedure with ENT to help me breathe better.
