for you help.
Which model of CPAP do you suggest.
I was okay with resmed s9 autoset.
How are Philips CPAP?
WELCOME!! to the forum.!
Great advice so far, but hang in there for more responses to your post and best of luck to you.
The big question is how do you *feel* after using the machine for a month? If you had 30 events an hour during a study, then yes, you can benefit from a CPAP. The numbers you posted show a drastic improvement compared to 30 events per hour, so it shows it is helping greatly. While only you can decide if the hassle and cost is worth it, please know that long-term 'sleep apnea' can cause severe and sometimes fatal health problems.
I went for my study because of my resting heart rate suddenly would not go below 122 (even with valium). Between CPAP/BI-PAP and my heart Doc and meds, some dozen years later my heart rate at rest is now 72 (off meds), and I no longer need to see the heart Doc. My heart issues were caused my long term untreated severe sleep apnea.
Everyone is different, but if it were me in your shoes (knowing what I know now) I would be living on CPAP, and yes, would buy one.

I will also echo in that you need a CPAP machine.
Your machine statistics are telling you that your apnea is well under control as it is treating you. So the question of whether you need the machine or not falls to how significantly the machine has to treat you.
The machine is configured to provide a variable as-required pressure. The median pressure that it is providing is 8.2 cmH2O, and 95% of your treatment is done with a pressure of 11.3 (or lower).
To give you an idea of these numbers, the machine can provide a maximum pressure of 20 cmH2O. So your machine is providing a "significant" pressure to keep your apnea under control. Hence the conclusion that you need such a machine.
