RE: Need Help[Do i need to buy a cpap]
Hi all,

Really thanks for you suggestion.

I have been using resmed s9 autoset for the past two days with oxiometer.

I can still see my spo2 going below 95 % some times but mostly it didn't cross 90 %.

But without CPAP. the frequency was too high.

I believe there's your answer then.

The data you have posted says that 68 days you (or someone) used the machine for more than 4 hours; 10% under 4 hours and in another place it says 22 days use for more than 4 hours. I am sort of confused by this. 68 days is more than 2 months.


Confusing because the "Used Days < 4 hrs : 10" has units of days, and the "% Used Days >= 4 hrs : 68" has units of %.

22 days (used >4hrs) is 68 percent of the 32 days.

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
