David Clark - Therapy Thread
RE: David Clark - Therapy Thread
You might have a slight tendency to the odd periods of sleep transition central apnea but it sounds like a good chunk of these are probably SWJ.

Even if they are real they appear to occur infrequently and trying to improve them by lowering EPR would likely be counter productive to the majority of your treatment so I would just ignore them unless they get noticeably worse/frequent.

Geer1, did you see where I edited the one post about the time on OSCAR being off? Saturday the 26th I was up by 6:15 to go to work but OSCAR was saying the session lasted until 8 something. I double checked the machine to make sure it had the correct date/time and it does. I don't know what was going on with that. I'll be sure to see what time the OSCAR data says in the morning before I go to work.

I got a new laptop recently and I transferred OSCAR from the old one to the new one via a SD card instead of just redownloading OSCAR...but I did have to download the update. I wonder if by doing that it threw something in OSCAR off. I don't know if starting over with a fresh SD card or maybe deleting the data from OSCAR and reuploading would clear it up or not.

Ok....forget all the stuff I said about the time being off on OSCAR. I just realized I'm an idiot.

This is last night. I turned EPAP back down to 8 from 9. Still looks decent to me. Flow limits is kind of spiky. I don't know if I'm going to get much better than what I've got now. A few sporadic apneas..and I'm not 100% sure those are legit or are just from moving around in the bed or something.

As spread out as your OAs are, I would lean toward them being arousals, like changing sleeping positions. Would you provide a 2-minute zoom screenshot of around 2AM? I would like to see your Flow Rate pattern during a non-event time.

To me, that waveform looks pretty good. Are you experiencing any pain or feeling the need to change positions to get comfortable while you sleep?

No. I normally wake up in the same position, in the same spot, I go to sleep. If I change positions at night I don't even know I do it.
