Cpap Without Study for Nocturia

a tinkerer by nature and comfortable with a trial and error approach which oftentimes resolves things that a direct diagnosis cannot.

Do you have any suggestions for a "cheap" and/or moderately priced unit I can get on the internet that should serve my purpose?

As to my other symptoms, they would be daytime fatigue, occasional snoring and at least one occasion where I woke up from a dream gasping for air.
Haven't taken my SP02 recently.


....then maybe you are on the right track looking at an xPAP machine. Good luck and let us know how it works out.

Jim, the best prices I'm aware of for those not using a prescription are the Philips Respironics DSX500T11 Auto CPAP on Amazon. It's been running around $400 but includes the heated humidifier and heated hose. Prices vary, so keep an eye out for a deal. I would pair that up with the Resmed Airfit P10 nasal pillows mask. That has been running around $70 for the retail "fit kit" that includes all three sizes of cushion. This unit is fully data capable and returns comprehensive results for obstructive and central apnea, hypopnea, snores and even respiratory event related arousals (RERA). It will take a while to fully dial in, but starting at a pressure range of 6-12 should give us a clue what's going on.

If you have a larger budget, the Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset is available for $620. I like this machine for its faster response and the use of EPR (exhale pressure relief) whic gives up to 3 cm pressure reduction on exhale. That makes it like a bilevel machine in some regards. So for the money, a bit more flexibility and comfort, but both are considered top in class for auto cpap.
