David Clark - Therapy Thread
RE: David Clark - Therapy Thread
I am happy to see the O2 level through the night, even with the cluster at the beginning. During my sleep test there were several desats, the lowest being down to 77. I'm glad to see, overall, it seems to look better. We'll see how night #2 goes...and hopefully I won't be fighting with my mask. That's an unusual thing for me to do.

Night #3. It's weird that the desats are right when I go to bed and as I'm going to sleep. Once I'm asleep it looks like it goes up pretty good.

It's a sleep transition central apnea effect. Sometimes you have actual central apnea but lots of the time like this it appears to just be periodic breathing (can see TV fluctuating). Your spo2 stays above 90 and I wouldn't worry about it unless it gets noticeably worse.

Yeah...I'm pretty happy with what I'm seeing overall with the SleepU. On the sleep study there were several desats and the lowest O2 was 77. I'm glad I bought the SleepU to satisfy my curiosity as to what it was now. I doubt I'll continue to wear it beyond another few nights if the current trend continues.

This is just purely a guess but looking at the shot from last night I'm thinking I probable feel asleep between 11:30 and 12am. I'm guessing that because of the O2 going up, pulse going down and TV smoothing out. Would you think that's close?

You think you laid in bed awake with the machine on for 1.5-2 hrs before falling asleep?

Good point. Probably not. I was just looking at the graphs not really thinking about the amount of time.

Well...last night wasn't too bad of a night. I started out trying my Dreamwear pillows mask just to see if I could. Apparently I haven't got the trick of keeping my mouth closed because that break at 11:30 was me weaking up with air rushing out my mouth and putting my Evora Full on. Then a little bathroom break around 4. Other than that it was pretty good.

Been dealing with a nagging little cough and a low grade temp the last few days so I took some NyQuil last night. Had the best night, number wise, since I started using the machine.  Too-funny
