[Diagnosis] Sleep Test Report. Comments requested.
#1
Sleep Test Report. Comments requested.
Hello,

I have just completed a Sleep Test and have a report. I have also completed consultation with Sleep Dr.
Recommendation is CPAP treatment, which I think is correct. Now looking to buy APAP probably Resmed Airsense 10.

I wonder if the team has any comments on the report.

Thanks
Phil

Phil, I suggest either the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet or the AutoSet for her. Infact insist on it.

AirSense 10 is a model line, not an individual model.

Finally, a simple vanilla Obstructive Apnea and Hypopnea patient. Zero CA or mixed, so the AutoSet certainly would be good.

Take a look at some of the more complex treatment needs here on Apnea Board, including ones like myself. You'll appreciate being vanilla. Coffee

One thing to note from the sleep study is that your apnea was only really an issue in supine position (sleeping on back).

Even better. Try side sleeping. Up had the least...maybe left or right side might be your best bet.

I had been aware (or the wife had) that sleeping on my side reduced my snoring, and by the looks of the report the OSA too.
However I end up on my back after a while.

I've ordered a ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet and ResMed AirTouch™ F20 mask.

I'll report how it all goes.

Apnea occurring in supine position could have a couple different causes. One is that gravity has more effect. Another is that you are more prone to tucking chin/kinking airway especially if using thick or multiple pillows. This second option is referred to as positional apnea.

Trying different pillow arrangements etc to try and maintain the best airway alignment possible when sleeping on back may be worthwhile especially if you do currently use thick pillows.

Welcome! And congrats on (hopefully) a nice, simple, vanilla sleep study, from another of the complicated pains in the butt. Big Grin


See my comparison of Viatom/Wellue and CMS50F oximeters here.
