It's not terrible looking but I agree that an epr of 3 can reduce the flow limitations even further for better quality sleep

Makes sense... Thank you!

You have the ability in Oscar to keep daily notes and a snapshot of how you're feeling (on a scale of Awesome to Zombie). See here: http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php..._bookmarks

Each time you open a particular day you will have your notes available to you. It's not possible to do much with the notes except read them on the screen and copy / paste into another document. Under some circumstances you can include the notes in a printed report of the page, but this is not reliable and fails more often than not, so we don't recommend it for now. Proper handling of the notes is on the "to do" list for the Oscar developers.

Did not realize this, thank you! I need to take more time to explore everything OSCAR has to offer.

Finally a new doctor suggested an at home sleep study to check for apnea (I asked my old doctor for testing but she refused since I don't fit the "apnea type" - I'm a 42 year old woman who's not overweight - even though I told her my husband had noticed I sometimes appear to stop breathing at night). Anyway, the study gave me a diagnosis of OSA with 9.4 AHI and I was prescribed the Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset - I've used it for 4 nights now. My question is can even mild apnea like I have cause severe fatigue? There are days I can hardly make it up or down the stairs in my home, I get weird tunnel vision and am very nearly falling asleep at the wheel when I have to drive more than 10 minutes at a time. Since I've started the APAP my AHI has reduced to about 1, but I feel even more fatigued since I've started therapy. I know I've only started therapy, and I wasn't expecting to feel better immediately after starting, but feeling worse is not something I expected.

Any insight is appreciated.

Absolutely I felt like I was slowly dying with mild sleep apnea the doc told me there were moments I had a apnea of over 80 seconds mine were mostly hyponeas but basically I 100% felt like sh*t all the time but I had a strong heart as I did a lot of cardio despite this... CPAP has given me a new life.
