Complex Apnea follow-up
#1
Complex Apnea follow-up
I guess I've had the usual struggles over the last 13 years gradually getting recognition that I have severe complex sleep apnea.  I've been on a ResMed AirCurve S10 ASV for the last three years and saw disappearance of CA's and very low UA's, but with persistence of hypopneas, usually in the single digits.  I've felt fairly well, still some nap attacks but I am obese (there, I said it) and old (77) and arthritic.  My sleep doc thought that was about the best I could hope for.  I've been complacent the last few years and the doc has spaced my follow-ups to annual visits with prn email contact in interim.  Now he has retired and I am about to face a brand new sleep doc (with a Pediatric background) and have no idea what her philosophy will be.  

I seem to have forgotten what little I learned from the Forum.  I hope that is not a prodrome to a different medical issue - knock wood!  But it does seem that my total AHI's are starting to average upwards, mostly from hypopneas.  I hope for some adult reassurance or suggestions for preparing for my New Doc visit.  I'll enclose a two year Statistics chart, and a two-part Oscar chart with the six recommended charts for 13 Nov 2021.
