My treatment has been going good finally, but I am always trying to tweak it and make it the best it can be.
Lately, for the last month I have been having CA events, only 2 or 3 a night, but sometimes up to 23 seconds. I haven't had any obstructive events except 2 or 3 in a whole month. I have had a few HP events.
My AHI has been below 1 for at least 3 months now.
My pressure I have been using is fixed at 11 with epr set at 3. No changes in 4 months.
If I want to tweak some more, which way should I go to try to get rid of the CA events, or should I just ignore and be happy with the results I am getting?
Not sure if I need more pressure, or less, or if EPR setting change might help.
With what you are telling us, I would ask "just how are you sleeping?" if you respond with a positive comment: great, fine, fantastic. Then I would say you are done! celebrate! enjoy! relax! breathe!
I am pretty stable at 2-7 CA's a night. Now if they start getting longer, then I would watch them and if it keeps getting longer, then I would check them out.
Your numbers sound fine, but if your concerned over the couple CA's you have, the only thing I might recommend is changing the EPR from 3 to 1. You probably wont notice a difference in breathing, but if you do, set it to 2.
Note: You don't want to raise your pressure as that may trigger more CA's.
With an AHI under 1, you are doing well.....it's how you feel at this point.
