[CPAP] Trying to identify whether these are real central apneas

Just scroll the left area to show the top section. That should correct it.

Both charts look really good. I can't see what I'd say to adjust. How do you feel after nights such as these? Unless there's issues, I'd go a few days and see what trends you get. Best to ya.

So I 've been using ASV since 12/11/2019, so a little less than a month. The difference has been tremendous vs APAP. I feel so much better, and all it took was an extra few hundred dollars of equipment. 

I realize that not everyone NEEDS an ASV, but it seems to me the machines should all be capable of all three modes. My ASV looks almost exactly the same as my APAP, and if it's just software, they should add 100 bucks to every machine and make it available as an option. 

Based on this thread, there was nothing tangible that you could point to that said I needed ASV, but it's been just a lot better, I feel so much better every day. I still have issues to fix unrelated to my cpap (orthodontic, deviated septum etc.), but now I feel like those things are optional as opposed to critical. It's just a shame I had to wait this long and take matters into my own hands. If I didn't get my ASV myself, I wouldn't be feeling better right now. 

I'll post some charts when I get some time so you can see how different they are, nothing has changed with my medical history.

If ASV works on giving you the prior missing "feeling better" aspect, no other justification needed. Congrats on positive progress.

As far as I'm aware, the hardware is exactly the same... just software.
Nothing I post is medical advice and should not be taken as such, always consult a medical professional for guidance.
