[CPAP] Need help setting up ResMed S9 VPAP Adapt
#11
Good news~! I seem to be the reverse, as when I am extremely tired, my events tend to go up.

An obstructive apnea event is a breathing reduction event where the machine is able to determine that your airway is blocked. A clear airway (or sometimes central) apnea event is a breathing reduction event where the machine is able to determine that your airway appears to be open. When SleepyHead reports an "Apnea" event, it means that there was sufficient leakage that the machine was unable to determine whether it was an obstructive apnea event or a clear airway apnea event.

I've been tweaking the settings several times. I changed from ASV mode to ASVAuto to reduce the airflow oscillations and that helped. I plan to change back to ASVAuto mode soon. Since the original issue of this thread has been resolved and I have some more issues, I plan to open a new thread and no longer update this one.
