BPAP Titration Sleep Study
RE: BPAP Titration Sleep Study
Thanks, SleepRider.

I've had to ask the doctor 3x so far why the experiment was null. AHI 18 for no-machine sleep study, AHI 18 for BiPAP sleep study.

Just watch the doc come back with "you must be depressed..."

Ever get the feeling you're at the Mad Hatter's tea party? Seriously - some of this stuff is beyond absurd.

I must say that you are handling it really well. Good for you, Ms. HalfAsleep! (geez, she couldn't even acknowledge you, could she?) I've been following along and have thought, "We need an agree button!" more than once.

Well, it seems insane because it probably is. One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different results. Seems like some Ducks do just that. Same answer should be OK for all.

Be sure to stock up on PITA, because that is the only way your doctor is ever going to understand.

"That HalfAsleep is such a PITA, just give her what she wants"

WIN!

RE: BPAP Titration Sleep Study
I'll bet the doc takes revenge by assigning an only fractionally uppity woman to the psych department.

They've already headed in this direction: the frontline specialist told me several weeks ago that cognitive behavioral therapy was the only way to remedy my sleep issues. No problem with a referral....

This is a standard sexist recommendation by doctors and other staff when they get challenged in most any medical facility.


I'll report back on my wager..... 


Dartmouth has a patient relations department. They take it very seriously. It's also in their patient bill of rights that questions are to be answered. No doubt I'll have to get more than fractionally uppity.....

Well they say shotguns and brick loaded purses get ducks in a row in relative short order. Just don't know who "they" are. Smile

RE: BPAP Titration Sleep Study
We all have our quirks, I would think that is a different issue, it would impact on your interactions with the doctors, but it wouldn't impact on your results of a sleep study, if they titrated you when you were asleep.
Even if you were a complete nutter, you still need a proper sleep study.

For auto-cpap, from machine data or software. You can set the min pressure 1 or 2cm below 95%. Or clinicians commonly use the maximum or 95% pressure for fixed pressure CPAP, this can also be used for min pressure.

Whoah, ajack, the nutty isn’t on me. Docs frequently pull this stunt on women when they ask questions and get persistent. It seems very likely that many women (and men) on this forum are sent over to psych departments if they don’t step in line. And it has nothing to do with sleep...

Yes, they can very readily tell you you’re crazy if you insist you need a pressure adjustment, a mask change, a different machine. This effectively shuts women up.

The same is true in the ER, oncology, infectious diseases, allergy, neurology, PCP, internal medicine, gynecology, urology, PT, pulmonology.....

Get the picture? Endemic.

Especially if women complain of pain.....
