It means "the retired person man." the article der makes the gender masculine.

I picked up a CMS50F oximeter. I only wear it occasionally.
Price is reasonable; and it gives reassurance that one is not badly desating.

This is exactly the model i'm thinking about buying.

I pretty much agree Ghandi, however two things remain true for you:
First, you need to get that pressure up to eliminate the possibility of those long drawn out OA's you get. But it's great to hear you had a good night last night. So whatever you did, do it again.

Secondly, once the OA's and CA's are taken care of further elimination of the Hypops is useful for better sleep.

Surfie, I think if you will squeeze the range between your min pressure and your max pressure you'll get over that goofy leak situation. Then maybe you'll be able to loosen your mask a little bit and return to that suave, sophisticated looking guy you once were. ............Nah, probably not gonna happen.

I slept with the backpack again Smile. However it's starting to make my back hurt. I,ll probably have to fin a way to get the head of the bed propped up too. But i'm not sure i can sustain the backpack anymore.

About the pressure, i'm in process of building a strong case to convince my pneumologist to increase the pressure. Also i have to present to him some of the periodic breathing events.

Ok, here's the technical details of how to construct that strong case.....

When the doc comes into the room, say "Hi Doc, I think I would like to increase my pressure just a little to see if it will help reduce my events, ok? Thanks Doc, what a guy........"

Sometimes we way over think a problem. The Doc wants your events gone, or as gone as possible. If you think a small pressure increase will help, he will likely be very happy to oblige.

You know, there is nothing like the wisdom of a retired_guy. I'll grow a pair.

I took an apointment with the doc. Big Grin
