RE: Finally got my machine
You probably already got your answer but here's another 2 cents worth.

When I started my AHI was high and I did not sleep. Then over the next 4 months my AHI slowly went down to < 1. Sleep was better but still not good. Month 5 sleep jumped up to satisfactory but AHI also jumped up. Very discouraging. Month 6, sleep got better to what I call good and AHI is starting to come down. Just when I think I have it order control, I get another setback. Now I have too see a heart Doctor.

Bottom line: every month was better than the previous even if it was very different. And I do see a light at the end of the tunnel.

HuhDont-knowI am an accountant so any advice given here is not medical. If I give any financial advice, you can take it to the bank. However, you will have a hard time cashing it in. Okay

Not unless you educate yourself before you get the machine. You always have an option, you just have to know how to assert it.
