Clear airway events
#1
Clear airway events
Two weeks into CPAP therapy, I'm having good success, reducing moderate (AHI ~20) to about AHI < 2 most nights.

I'm using SleepyHead software (sorry - my profile appears inaccurate; changed it but the change didn't register)

Typically half (8/16 events) are CA - clear airway events.  (the other 8 are split ~50/50 HA & OA)

Does CPAP therapy do anything for these clear airway events?  

From what I've read (this forum and elsewhere) I get the impression that it won't make a difference.

Am I getting this correct?  What can be done for CA events?

RE: Clear airway events
Many people experience CA events when stating CPAP, they usually diminish over time. Turning off EPR helps some people. If you want better advice install [url=https://OSCAR Page ----> CLICK HERE ./]SleepyHead[/url] and post some charts.

RE: Clear airway events
Dave,

Thanks.  I actually have SleepyHead - just missed the "update profile" button when I started running it.

Which charts are of particular interest in this question?

I'll take a stab at this with attached screenshots but, please folks, let me know if others are more appropriate.

Attached a moderate close-up of two CA events.

   

Thanks!

RE: Clear airway events
I think that will be helpful, prior to both events you have an increase in volume. It would help to post the entire session use this guide http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...ganization
