I get a bunch of clear airway events almost every night. Everyone says not to worry about them, so I guess it's only an issue if you actually have been diagnosed with central sleep apnea. I've had similar concerns in some of my threads and am slowly learning not to over analyze the data Smile

I deleted your reports that you PM'ed me. However, the way you had sent them to me is exactly how you can post them here. You had sent me pictures that you had uploaded to postimg.org. All I did was copy the links out of my PM inbox and paste them into this thread.

If you like, you can PM me your next set of data and I can post it here.

RE: S9 Resmed auto setting not working
well, here goes another night.Last night, by morning time, I was dreaming that I had a wad of bubble gum in my mouth. I kept removing and removing more of it, only to find out I still had so much gum in my mouth. I suddenly awaken to release it was my tongue and I wasn't breathing...oh well, got to keep trying.

RE: S9 Resmed auto setting not working
I had a great night sleep on last night. I use an old nasal mask I have from about 5 years ago. The respironic True blue, it's sort of bulky and heavy. But it worked great. I didn't use the huge chin strip I made and sleep very well. Mouth did not open, pressure did not run away...but I forgot to put the sd card in the machine. Tongue but that's ok...sleep is a good thing to start my day...putting the sd card back in the machine right now.

I don't think I have had a night yet where something wasn't flagged. Usually it's a handful of central / clear-airway events. I might get a couple hypopneas and the occasional obstructive.

As long as your AHI is less than 5, you had a "good" night. The closer to 0 the better, but getting 0 is darn near impossible for most folks.

I see. However I noticed that the your wake time impacts ur AGO. If u lie awake for 15 minutes it will lower it AGO. I wake up several times a night. So I use numbers of events

You're right that if you have periods of wakefulness your data will show a lower overall AHI. However, without time as a frame of reference, the total event count doesn't mean anything.

I wake up several times a night myself, to turn around / change positions or whatever. Most people probably do, especially coming out of REM sleep. I wouldn't worry about that... I don't think AHI has to be super accurate.

Now if you get up out of bed or decide to lay awake for some time, as you said 15 minutes, maybe it's a good idea to turn the machine off so it's not skewing your data.
