[Diagnosis] Severe supine AHI but low on side...?
#11
RE: Severe supine AHI but low on side...?
Thanks everyone for your inputs! 

@Sleeprider, I've posted numerous Sleepyhead results in my [url=I've posted numerous Sleepyhead results in my therapy thread: http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...pport]main therapy thread[/url]. In the 10 weeks since I've started therapy, average AHI is 5.94 and pressure is 5.64 but ongoing results remain inconsistent. You and others mentioned I may have complex and/or cpap-induced complex apnea. I'm still experimenting and the dust hasn't settled yet, I'll continue to post there about specific results.

@holden4th, I've been using a cervical pillow since long before they were popular lol. I'm much more comfortable with my neck straight, so I'm pretty conscious of that, both when supine and on side. So I don't think positional issues are exacerbating my apneas. If anything, keeping my neck straight when supine exacerbates my occasional open mouth issues. 

@pholynyk, I'm still committed to the therapy, especially as many say it can take 6+ months to fully adjust. I'm just fanatical about research and facts and starting to get impatient!

@Mogy, those were my thoughts exactly ;-)

Thanks
