[CPAP] UARS, data interpretation OSCAR, what to do?
#31
RE: UARS how to interpret data!!
The results don't look like flow limitations or UARS unless it is already being treated. Your respiration rate graph looks a little strange and the examples of what you thought might be RERA's show a bit of odd breathing but it isn't a typical flow limited/restricted breathing arousal.

Your average PS over 7 is quite high. I would try lower psmin, start with 3, to see how that affects data.

RE: Eliminating RERAs
EPR is on a ResMed AirSense AutoSet. Exhale Pressure Relief. It's identical to a bilevel pressure support.

RE: Eliminating RERAs
What is nightly chart?

BTW my current pressure settings are 5 EPAP PS Min 6 PS MAX 12

Before I was using 4 EPAP PS Min 6 PS MAX 11

Still feeling [Sexually Oriented or Vulgar Text Removed] bad. Seems to be [Sexually Oriented or Vulgar Text Removed] no way
to prevent RERAs or other sleep disturbances, might just have to wait for DJS and MSE.

RE: Eliminating RERAs
KKBB, we need to see a Daily Details chart as described in this Organizing Your Charts wiki http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...ganization If you will provide that, we will immediately know what machine you are using and its settings, as well as whether RERA is a factor is your therapy. Most bilevel machines can effectively threat RERA however if you have an ASV (S9 VPAP Adapt), then that device is intended to treat central and complex apnea. We have coached users with ASV to minimize flow limitations and RERA however we are really in the dark at this point on how to help you. Please post a chart.

i can get another machine, but i figured it would be fine given that barry krakow advocates for it.

RE: UARS, data interpretation OSCAR, what to do?
King Kong, I have merged your threads. They all are discussing the same concerns with RERA and UARS, and by consolidating your threads in one, we now have all the history and graphs in one place. You are self-diagnosing and self-treating using a S9 VPAP Adapt ASV. In simple terms, this machine is designed to treat central and complex apnea, and is not intended for the task of treating flow limitation from upper airway restriction and the resulting respiratory effort related arousals. You need an auto bilevel like the Resmed Aircurve 10 Vauto or S9 VPAP Auto, and I think we could even be more successful with an Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset CPAP with EPR.

I think you have taken the VPAP Adapt as far as possible and have not achieve your objective of a more restful sleep. It's the wrong tool for the job. The ASV is very difficult and expensive to get for individuals that really need it, so I'm sure you will find a buyer (Forum rules prohibit listing here). Please look for an appropriate machine you can afford on Craigslist, SearchTempest, Facebook Marketplace, Offerup etc.

RE: UARS, data interpretation OSCAR, what to do?
Yep that is an ASV. Only the ASV has ASV and ASV Auto modes. This is one Sleeprider mentioned that treats Central and mixed Apnea, so what he said is correct.
