Apnea Events Early On!
#1
I've using my Bi-Flex machine for just a little over a month...With practice and patience I've achieve my new larger size mask to seal fairly-well. Now when I review my Sleepyhead data it appears that most of apnea events occur in the first 90 minutes of sleep... then everything remains fairly quiet until just before I wake up.

Has anyone else noticed this kind of pattern in their sleep behavior?

Thanks...

I'm just the opposite. And every time someone posts a screenshot of their data they are yet different again. Thinking-about

Are you actually asleep during those 90 minutes?

I can see how there'd be more events just prior to waking. My machine isn't data capable but using the oximeter, my most 'events' according to it is the last two hours of sleep and the first hour. I suspect that the first hour is because I am in and out of sleep or not sleeping at all.
