Back to CPAP and wanting advice
Back to CPAP and wanting advice
Hi guys,  recently started my CPAP back again after having been off for 2-3 years.
I had a horrible time with my 3rd day back yesterday with constantly waking up.
I downloaded the Oscar software to get a bit more info.
Are Clear Airway apneas what they call Central apneas? 
Should I be concerned about this if so?
I had real some people saying you needed different machine to treat those?

I attached a few screenshot from my first 3 days on Oscar.  If anyone had any suggestions.
The pressure set on the machine was from 2-3 years ago. Just got a new sleep study a few weeks ago showing that I had been mild sleep anea at first 5-6AHI but now at Moderate 15AHI.

I wanted to see about getting a new machine some time next week as the machine I have is the recalled ones.  I was thinking the Resmed AirSense 11, but I was just wanting to make sure I was not going to buy a wrong machine.

Thanks for any help.

You can replace the air chamber in your machine for $30 and not have to buy a new machine (I'm using my Phillips machine after the retrofit). I tried a new S10 FH and didn't like it.  You should probably raise your max pressure up to 13-14 to begin.

On your DS1
Enable Flex at 2
Increase Min to 10, Max to 15

You want a ResMed AutoSet, it really does not matter if it is A10 or A11.
ResMed settings
Min pressure = 9
Max Pressure = 15
EPR=3, fulltime
Ramp = OFF

I don't know if you have an ozone cleaner but do NOT use it on either machine.
