I was fortunate enough to come across a sleep study in Chicago which funded two overnight studies for me in order to address OSA and insomnia both independent of one another as well as together. I'm still in the sleep study, however, I decided to purchase my own machine instead of using theirs for the at-home portion of the study.
Based on the sleep center's recommendation, I went with the AirSense 10 Autoset (heated humidifier) and just received it. I'm beyond excited to start using it and will hopefully feel what it's like to wake up feeling rested!
Here's my question: I won't receive my sleep study results (AHI, etc) until after the study is over in 90 days, however, I saw the prescription when ordering my machine and it had me at a pressure of 8. Now, out of a possible 20, I assume this is very low? I'm also hoping this can give me an idea of my AHI since I'm dying to know.
Can anyone shed some light on what a pressure of 8 treats? i.e., AHI greater or less than 5?
Thanks for your help! I'm so glad I came across this informative board!
