Dapal's Therapy Thread.
RE: Dapal's Therapy Thread.
Sounds like the P10 plus tape is a good solution for you. Leaks are a serious problem for only three reasons: they are so high your machine can't treat your apnea, they keep you awake, or they make your mouth horribly dry. The first two are unacceptable; the dryness, well, you have to decide what's OK for you.

So if the leaks aren't waking you up or going over 24 for more than a short while, you don't really need to worry about them.

It's very good to see you doing so well with this!

Well, sometimes what helps as much as anything else is time -- time to get used to the new experience, to identify problems, and figure out solutions. I'm very glad time has been your friend in all this.

Here I am back the road again  Smile
Result on ResMed AirSense 10 recently :

   

lots of junkie  stuffs Unsure

I bought a brand new auto Curve on Craigslist. Last night is my first trying it out after seeing I had Airways, high AHI , junkie stuffs  Thinking-about

   

Could Some one explain to me am I doing alright  with my new machine setting up, compared  with I had been go though with ResMed AutoSense?

Learning a lots in this forum. I decide to go with Auto Curve, using my out of pocket money.
I still have to pay monthly renting of my old machine Autosense 10. Is a way for me to get reimbursed by Medicare?

I am using the same SD card  from Resmed Airsense 10 to new machine ResMed AutoCurve. Hopefully I could Print all details  out to show my primary doctor ( not the sleep doctor  Laugh-a-lot).
I intend to change back and for old machine and new machine convince my doctor that I sleep well, feeling better with new machine, Would it lead me to Reimburse from Medicare?

Thanks a lot if some one could put your inputs.

Another good result with Aircurve machine bought out of my pocket.
Have not Use  Res Med Airsense 10 for two day. Do they ( Advantage Medicare Insurance ) care about that? I Still have to pay ~$9/monthly.
Thank you for your advice.

Hi Dapal! It's great you're feeling better with your new Aircurve ASV machine. You've come such a long way!

As for the ASV settings, I'm not competent to advise you, so maybe Sleeprider will swing by and offer his thoughts.

I wish I had a definite answer to your question about Medicare, but my guess is they wouldn't consider funding an ASV unless your doctor wrote a prescription for it. Even then, they might not be open to reimbursing you for a machine you bought yourself. About the Airsense 10 Autoset, ask the insurance company whether you're in danger of losing the machine for non-compliance (not using it enough). But do you want to hang onto it? If not, maybe just give it back?

RE: Dapal's Therapy Thread.
Looks fantastic. My only suggestion would be to change from ASV to ASV auto mode which would let you set a range for EPAP. Considering you are doing so well with EPAP 4.0, I would only try a small range of EPAP min 4.0 and EPAP max 6.0, mainly because your past CPAP therapy often had higher pressure. Your PS range of 3.0 to 15.0 is working very well. If you changed nothing at all, your therapy looks fantastic, so it may be best just to stick with what is working.

You rarely had high AHI in the past, and I'll be most interested to hear if you feel you are sleeping more restfully with ASV. Do you mind saying what this cost on Craigslist?
