Chronic Insomnia
RE: Chronic Insomnia
The signature of positional apnea is grouped apnea. Most of yours happened as pairs so while the problem is not worth chasing, there is a suggestion of positional involvement.

RE: Chronic Insomnia
        My AHI has been in the 1's and 2's here lately but last night jumped up to 4.8 showing 34 OA's during the night. I am posting a screenshot to find out if this is classic chin tucking apneas since they are in clusters. When I go to bed and put on my collar I think sometimes I might not adjust it tight enough. It has been hard getting use to it at night sleeping because it feels like someone is strangling me. I do see the advantage of wearing it as it has helped not only my OA's in previous nights but also my Large Leaks are way down since I started using it. The first screenshot is from a week ago when my AHI was 0.79 and I had 2 OA's and the second screenshot is from last night.

RE: Chronic Insomnia
You have very good therapy when you keep your chin up. Don't hesitate to experiment with other makes or sizes of collar to be more comfortable and effective.

RE: Chronic Insomnia
    Please take a look at the screenshot I posted from last night and tell me what the breaths it shows signifies. This is a section that lasted around 14 minutes and started after 1 OA and lasted till another OA and then I seemed to go back to normal breathing. I know when my breaths are rounded on top normally means normal breathing while I am a sleep. This section of breathing looks erratic. I am just wanting to know as to educate myself and learn how to read my charts.

Thanks,
Mark

RE: Chronic Insomnia
Oral expiration. Although you don't have a leak showing, you are exhaling through your mouth and at least partially inhaling nasally. It's very common and I see it from time to time in my own results. From the Beginner's Guide to Sleepyhead wiki
