Recap (from a phone call) of sleep study:: Apnea events started with 5 per hour, than went to 9 and topped out at 44 while sleeping on my back. 44 times of stopping breathing in one hour!! NOT good!
Oxygen level was usually around 95%, dropped to 82% while sleeping on my back. YIKES!!
Bring on the CPAP/APAP!!! I should get mine this week (I pray and hope!!), in the meantime I am using my hubby's old CPAP, known as "the brick", until than. I have been having my hubby adjust it up from 8.0 to 8.2 and last night I went to 8.6.
The full review of the sleep study is on Sept 22nd and I will get the written report at that time. I will know the pressure range when I get my CPAP.
I refuse to give myself brain & heart damage as my father did. [/font]
Diagnosed: 44 AHI when supine, O2 down to 82%
Treated since 20 Sept 2014:: 0.7 AHI, Settings 7-15, EPR on Full Time at Level 3
Better living through CPAP/APAP machines!
